How to configure your league exactly the way you want.
Yes, you can. Go to
League » Settings » Edit Lineup Locking.
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.
Yes. Go to
League » Settings » Edit Keeper Rules.
You can specify any number of keepers from 1 all the way up to your league's maximum roster size (40).
The maximum roster size is 55. The minimum is 5.
The minimum roster size is 5 and the maximum is 55.
League » Settings » Edit Regular Season Schedule » Custom. Select the week you wish to edit from the dropdown, and don't forget to save your changes for each week.
No, each team can be scheduled for at most one head-to-head matchup per week.
No, each matchup lasts exactly one week.
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 steps to take (best followed on a desktop computer):
Not directly, but there is a workaround.
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.
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).
The co-commish can help manage the league when the commish is unable to. Fleaflicker allows multiple co-commissioners per league as well.
At the moment there is no way to clear message boards from previous years. You can, however, delete individual messages in private leagues.
If you delete your league, you can't undo the action. All teams, messages and other league records will be permanently deleted.
Yes. Waivers will run on the league's configured waiver processing days.
Yes. Go to
League » Settings » Edit Transaction Rules Select
Free Agents During Preseason (After Draft).
Most leagues don't open free agency before the draft to prevent owners from selecting players outside of the draft, however, we do offer this capability. To do this, go to
League » Settings » Open Free Agency and choose either "Open free agency & draft later" or "Open free agency & no draft". You will still have access to the draft board and the current season's picks when you turn this feature on.
Yes. Go to
League » Settings » Create a New Team and enter the team's name. (The new owner will be able to change the name of the team when they join.) You can now invite that team to directly take over through the Standings page by clicking on the green invite button.
The commissioner cannot edit team names at this time. Team owners can edit their team names at any time from
Team » Settings.
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.
You can do both at
League » Settings » Edit League Size
Yes, go to
League » Settings » Edit League Name/Logo
No, these two settings are separate. You can remove an owner while retaining the team and roster. Go to
League » Settings » Remove/Replace Owner. Select the owner you want to remove and provide a reason. You can then return to the league standings and select
Invite new owner.
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).
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.
The NFL doesn't track half sacks separately from full sacks. So all scoring rules must be applied to total sacks. For example, if your league awards 2 points for every sack, a player that is credited with 2.5 sacks will be awarded 2.5 * 2 = 5 points.
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:
Yes, go to
League » Settings » Edit Scoring Rules and select a league. It will replicate that league's scoring rules into yours.
Go to the
Players section from the top navbar and click on a player. You will then see your league's scoring rules applied to their stats from previous seasons. Click on the points for a detailed explanation of how your league's scoring rules were applied.
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.
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.
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.
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 DS/T position.
Flex positions can be made up of any combination of added positions, like RB/WR/TE. To add one, go to
League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom and select the "New Flex" option.
League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » New Flex
You can use the "New Flex" feature add up to five flex positions per league.
Yes, but there are a few steps involved.
Here are the steps to add a DH to your flex position:
Yes, go to
League » Settings » Edit Rosters.
Yes. The commish can edit a starting lineup any time before the end of the week. Go to
League » Settings » Set Starting Lineups (in the
Commish Powers section).
To randomly generate a new draft order, go to
League » Settings » Edit Draft Order and select the
Randomly generate a new draft order option.
No, you can only customize the draft order for the current season. But teams may trade draft picks for up to three seasons in the future.
To change the draft order, go to
League » Settings » Edit Draft Order » Manually round-by-round and then select the round to be edited. Draft picks for the round can then be edited. Don't forget to click
Save after every round.
Yes, you can pause the live draft, undo picks, and also make selections on behalf of other owners by selecting the Commish Draft button. You can also move this along by selecting the forward icon that will auto-draft the next best user in the draft window for the team.
You can go to
Draft » Draft Board.
If all teams have signed up for an account, go to
League » Settings » Import Rosters.
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. If you need to credit the team with points, you can do so after the week ends by finding out their total points by searching for the player and adding up the player's points and then going to
League » Settings » Edit Past Box Score.
Not formally but we suggest you post a message to the league message board (using the
Email entire league option) or use the commish sticky note. On the day of the deadline, you can then release all non-keepers from
League » Settings » Clear Non-Keepers.
Commissioners have two options for setting keepers in their leagues.
Yes, but the players will not count or be put in your lineup if their game has finished already. If you're in a head-to-head league, you can add up their points from the player profile page and manually edit score at
League » Settings » Edit Past Box Score.
The Commissioner's Note is a special messaging area that the commish or co-commish can use to post a message on the Standings page. A message could be a draft reminder, league rule change, congratulatory post, etc. Only league members will see this section. Commissioners will find the "Add Commissioner's Note" button on the main league home page above the Standings table. Select the button to open up a text edit field to add text, links and/or images to share with the league. The note can be set to expire on a certain date (at which time it will just disappear), or you can keep the default of no expiration date to keep it up until you remove or change it.
Select the "Edit Commissioner's Note" button located underneath the Commissioner's Note section. Update as needed and then select the Save button.
You can just type in the full URL (including http://) where you are pointing to and it will become clickable when you save your update. If you want to make specific text clickable, highlight the text and then select the Link button from the top and add the URL for your destination.
To add an existing image that exists on the web, you just need to get the image address and then copy that in to the field. The image URL should have an image file ending, such as "football.jpg" or "football.gif" at the end of the URL.
Yes, go to
League » Settings Remove Team & Stay Commish. You'll retain full commissioner control without managing a team. Your team will become eligible to be taken over by a new owner, or you can delete it.
Fleaflicker's scoring system is very flexible and can easily accommodate any custom scoring tiers.
There are two reasons you may not see a schedule yet:
If you want to switch to a head-to-head league, go to
League » Settings » Edit League Type (available only in the preseason).
The "Enforce Roster Minimums" setting stipulates that teams are not allowed to go below minimum roster requirements. If this setting is enabled, it will prevent owners from adding players at other positions until all minimums are met. This setting is located via
League » Settings » Edit Transaction Rules.
