Perhaps I might be the only excited person but ask me if I care. I’m gonna be so excited that it’s gonna rub off, just watch. I do want to glaze over a few things as things return to the “new normal” in The Backyard as discussed in the off-season.
Return of Pre-COVID Bench
During the previous two seasons, we had an extended bench to account for the whole COVID thing in lieu of a larger IR/IL/DL/WHATEVER. Since we all know the pandemic is 100% over, the Backyard is going to drop two bench spots heading into 2022. This will go into effect April 1st but feel free to make those cuts early. That’s just when I will make the change and anything after will make the roster illegal.
I was very diligent this off-season trying to find an alternative to Fantrax and I just couldn’t find an acceptable one that would fit all of our league needs. Many had features but lacked out scoring format. Others would do it, but not allow the customization we need. Of the three most popular scoring formats, ours is less popular than points or roto so until something else emerges, Fantrax it is. And since we are a premium league, it does come with a cost that I have not been able to circumvent a third time. This $10 per person fee can be paid directly on the Fantrax site/app, not to me. There’s a deadline on the app, probably.
Honestly, not much. You’re free to make trades and free agent acquisitions as needed and as always. If there are any further concerns, ya’ll know where to reach me.
