To assemble your team, you will draft players from a list of all NFL players, in both the AFC and NFC.
Once the rosters have locked for the week you're going to have to ask your commish to make the change for you. They are the only one with that ability in order to prevent owners from illegally adjusting their roster mid-game to get an advantage. Hopefully you're on good standing with them and they'll make the change - maybe paying for the wings this Sunday will help.
If you're wondering why some of your players are locked and others aren't at the beginning of the week, individual roster slots lock when the team of the player in that slot begins their game. If you left an injured player in that slot unfortunately you may be out of luck for this week.
LEAGUE SETTINGS & DRAFTING
Standard league settings cannot be changed. In order for the draft to proceed, it is required that ALL team ownership slots are filled prior to draft time. It is very important to check the list of owners who have joined before your (Live Online or Autopick) live draft is set to start. If open ownership slots remain, the draft time/date will be removed from our system, and a new date/time for the draft will need to be set.
For any player created Standard league that does not fill within one hour of the draft, that league will have its slot eliminated. The affected league will need to pick a new date/time through a Referendum (found on the League Clubhouse page). Any Live draft Lobby league that is not full before the draft start will have their draft time continually pushed back by five minute intervals until the league is filled.
NOTE: Once your draft has filled, it will convert once the scheduled time arrives.
Joining and Creating Leagues: You may create or join up to a total (combined) of 10 public standard leagues.
UNDROPPABLE PLAYER LIST
All Standard leagues will observe ESPN's Undroppable Players list. The Undroppable Players list is comprised of select elite level players who cannot be dropped to waivers at any time during the football season. ESPN introduced this feature to prevent collusion (In these cases, owners would be able to drop star players, allowing those first on the waiver wire to pick them up).
PUBLIC VIEWABLE LEAGUES
Standard leagues may be viewable by the public or private depending on the choices made by the league creator.
