How to configure your league exactly the way you want.

Can I change my league from daily to weekly lineups?

Yes, you can. Go to League » Settings » Edit Lineup Locking.

How can I increase the number of bench players?

Go to League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom. Then increase the total number of players allowed on the roster (without changing any of the starting requirements). Look for the edit icon located on the "Total and Bench" line in order to make this change.

How can I add an injured reserve (IR) slot?

Go to League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Add Injured Reserve.

Why can't I place a player on injured reserve (IR)?

Players are eligible for injured reserve (IR) or the disabled list (DL) only when they meet your league's minimum injury requirements. This is a configurable setting that the commish may change at any time. To see if a player meets the minimum injury requirements for your league's IR, mouse-over the player's injury icon for more details.

Why can't I move a locked player out of the IR section?

This is currently a limitation of our system and something we plan to address in the future. All players lock at the start of their game, regardless of which part of the roster they sit in currently, and therefore they can't be moved. As a workaround, you can ask your commissioner to adjust your lineup for you before the week finalizes (i.e. Monday night for NFL). They have the ability to move the locked player out of the IR section. To do this, they will need to go to League » Settings » Set Starting Lineups (in the Commish Powers section).

Can I place suspended players on the IR?

Yes, if your minimum injury level setting includes Suspended.

Can I prevent suspended players from being placed on IR?

Yes, you can configure your IR to only allow players whose status is OUT or healthier.

Can I create a practice squad or taxi squad?

Yes! Head to League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Add Taxi Squad and then set the number of players you want to add to the section, between 1 and 30.

What is a Taxi Squad?

Taxi Squads, also referred to as practice squads, allow owners to place players (typically rookies) in a dedicated section separate from the main roster and the IR (Injured Reserve). Fleaflicker offers a dedicated Taxi Squad section which can be added via League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Add Taxi Squad.

How can I set my Taxi Squad to be rookies only?

We don't have a setting for this currently (though we hope to add it in the future), but for now you can simply communicate to your league members if you have a custom rule like "rookies only" for this section.

Why aren't my players staying on my Taxi Squad?

If the commissioner adds the Taxi Squad positions after the start of the season, and some owners have already set up future lineups, then they will need to update each of those future lineups with their Taxi Squad updates. (We wouldn't want the system to override anything that was previously customized in regards to the lineup.) When the owners get through all of the future lineups that were set, this will no longer be an issue.

Can I change my league from a redraft to a keeper?

Yes. Go to League » Settings » Edit Keeper Rules.

Can I keep more than 15 players?

Can I schedule multiple matchups for each team?

No, each team can be scheduled for at most one head-to-head matchup per week.

Can I schedule matchups that span more than week?

No, each matchup lasts exactly one week. In daily sports (MLB, NBA, and NHL), a short week may be combined with the next week only at the start or end of a season.

How can I delete a week in the schedule?

Commissioners can remove match-ups for a week so that it’s a “bye week” of sorts for the entire league. No fantasy games happen in your league that week, so no owners can be affected negatively. Here are the precise steps to take (best followed on a desktop computer):

Can I combine weeks (like a short week and a long week)?

Commissioners can manually combine weeks by keeping the match-ups in place for one of the weeks but then setting the other week to a bye week. Here are the steps:

Does a team with less bye weeks have an advantage over teams with more bye weeks?

Fleaflicker ranks the teams using the winning percentage so that teams with more byes aren't at a disadvantage. The winning percentage, also called the win-loss percentage, is equivalent to (Wins + Ties/2)/Total Games.

I don't want to be commissioner anymore. Can I step down?

Go to League » Settings » Step Down As Commish and choose another owner to pass the controls to. You can also have someone help you without resigning commissioner duties at League » Settings » Appoint Co-Commish. The co-commish has nearly all the same options as the commissioner (they cannot remove other owners, delete teams, or delete the league).

What is the point of a co-commish?

The co-commish can help manage the league when the commish is unable to. Fleaflicker allows multiple co-commissioners per league as well.

Can I clear the message board?

At the moment there is no way to clear message boards from previous years. You can, however, delete individual messages in private leagues.

After I create a new team, can I edit its name?

You can only edit team names when you initially create the team in your league. Otherwise, the owner who takes over the created team will only have the ability to change their name and logo.

Does my league have to be full? Can I have an odd number teams?

You can play as long as you have at least 4 teams (the maximum is 24). As soon as any league has 4 teams in it, it can conduct a live draft, email draft, or the commissioner can import rosters.

What's the easiest way to edit the league size and division size?

You can do both at League » Settings » Edit League Size

If I remove an owner, will their team disappear?

How do I delete an entire team?

You can do this via League » Settings » Delete Team. It will also clear your league's head-to-head schedule (if one has already been generated). The schedule will be re-generated after your league fills up or drafts (whichever comes first).

Can I use decimals in my scoring? I want .25 points per 10 yards passing, how can I set this up?

Yes, you can enable decimal scoring in your league. For example, to award .25 points for every 10 yards, set your scoring rule with 1 point for every 40 yards. This is the whole-number equivalent of the decimal rule: 1/40=.25/10.

Can I set up scoring tiers for decimal categories like yards-per-attempt and completion percentage?

No. It's not possible to configure a contiguous set of rules that cover all possible values. For example, the following rules won't cover any value in between the defined endpoints:

Can I copy the scoring rules from another league?

Yes, go to League » Settings » Edit Scoring Rules and select a league. It will replicate that league's scoring rules into yours.

If I change scoring rules in the middle of the season, will that change past results?

No, only non-finalized matchups will have their scores changed. Any matchups that have already been finalized will not change. If you change your rules any time in the middle of a week, that week will change per your new rules.

Can I edit final scores?

Yes. Commissioners may select Edit Past Box Score from the league settings page and choose any matchup that has been finalized (i.e., is reflected in the league standings page) in Head-to-Head leagues. The rest of the league will be notified of the change on the league activity page. We don't offer this option in Roto or Total Points leagues at this time.

Is it possible to distinguish between special teams fumbles and offensive fumbles?

Not at the moment, but we hope to support this in the future. For now fumbles on punt returns or any other special teams play are scored just like fumbles on passing and rushing plays.

Can I give the Defense/Special Teams points for a fake field goal TD or a fake punt TD while the unit is technically on offense?

No, since the team is still considered on offense on a (e.g.,fake punt on a fourth down), it is not considered points for a TM position.

Why do you have players that are retired like Jerry Rice in your database?

Fleaflicker was established in 2005 and any player to play in the NFL since then will stay in the database under Players.

This gives you the opportunity to look back at one of your past teams from many years ago and see all box scores, rosters and standings.

If you import rosters or hold an email draft or a live draft after the player's game has played, you may not see the player on the roster for the current week. However, they will show on the next week's roster in weekly leagues and the next day's roster in daily leagues.
