Setting up IR and Taxi Squad sections.
League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Add Injured Reserve.
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.
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).
Yes, if your minimum injury level setting includes SUSPENDED and your commish doesn't have the "Allow Suspended" setting set to No.
Commissioners can specifically exclude Suspended as an allowable IR eligible designation. You can find this setting by going to
League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Edit (located across from IR in the list).
League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Edit (located across from IR in the list) and set the desired minimum value.
No. Only one setting can be applied to all IR slots.
No, players in the IR and Taxi Squad sections don't count against either the active roster limit or the position limit.
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.
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.
We offer the ability to restrict the Taxi Squad to first season rookies only (those players with the graduation cap icons). The default option keeps the Taxi Squad open to any player, regardless of experience.
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.
After the commissioner adds IR and/or Taxi Squad positions to the roster requirements, owners will see "IR" and "TAXI" appear for eligible players in the position drop-downs. Once they have moved at least one player to either place, they will then see the section(s) show up just below the Bench.
