Setting up IR and Taxi Squad sections.

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?

To prevent suspended players from being in the IR, you need to set the minimum injury level to only allow players whose status is Out, PUP, IRD or IR. To do this, go to League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Edit (across from the IR icon) and set the desired minimum value.

How do I change the minimum injury level set in the IR?

Go to League » Settings » Edit Roster Requirements » Custom » Edit (across from the IR icon) and set the desired minimum value.

Can I configure different injury levels for different IR slots?

No. Only one setting can be applied to all IR slots.

Do players on IR or the taxi squad count against active roster or position limits?

No, players in the IR and Taxi Squad sections don't count against either the active roster limit or the position limit.

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.

Why can't I see the IR and Taxi Squad sections I added on the Team page?

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.
