How is position eligibility determined?

It is different for all four sports and we do take certain players on a case-by-case basis in unique circumstances – it is not concrete as position eligibility in sports aren't; however, we make every attempt not to change positions after the start of the season.

For NFL, positions are determined by official rosters during the season and team media guides during the offseason and early preseason. Eligibility will not be changed after Week 3 of the preseason and position duality will not be applied to any players.

For MLB, a position player must have had 10 starts the previous season or 7 during the current season to earn eligibility at a new position. Pitchers require 3 starts to gain SP eligibility and 8 relief appearances gain RP eligibility during the current year.

For NHL, position eligibility is determined by official rosters and team media guides during the preseason. If a player is projected to split their time between multiple positions, dual eligibility will be considered.

For NBA, position eligibility is determined by official rosters and team media guides during the preseason. If a player is projected to split their time between multiple positions, dual eligibility will be considered.
