As for the 2020 version of our game, everything you love is back, along with these great new features:

Free Agent Acquisition Budget (FAAB) 

  • For Pro and Public leagues: Continuous waivers with free-agent acquisition budget (FAAB) will now be used to claim players instead of Free Agents. 

  • You will make claims to add players for the next day, as usual. However, claims are resolved by prices paid and ties are broken by waiver priority.

  • This is much fairer than awarding players to the first manager to make the claim. Sorry West Coasters, we have to be fair to everyone.

Updated Scoring Settings 

Deeper Prospect Poll

Chat improvements

  • We have added image upload, GIFs, and reactions to league chat. Stay tuned for more enhancements throughout the season.

New default innings limits for pitchers 

Yahoo Cup

More to Come
