Understanding "Position / Roster Rules"

All league's have rules regarding their ROSTER slots, pertaining to which positions will be used, and a minimum and maximum allowed at each position.

In FanDraft, you can setup which positions will be used, and set the minimum/maximum of each position, by doing the follow:

  1. Go to SETUP > LEAGUE SETUP
  2. Click the "Edit Roster Positions" button.
  3. In the next screen, check the positions that will be used, and type the min/max for these slots.

Don't "Confuse Position / Roster" Rules with Starting Lineup Rules

Often times users will confuse their league's starting lineup rules, with the roster rules.
For instance, in-season your rules may be that you start a QB, 2 RBs, 1 WR, 1 TE, and one FLEX spot.
None of this matters in FanDraft.

What is important is how many players at each position are allowed to be drafted.

FLEX: Don't confused COMBINED positions with Flex Positions

In the "Edit Positions" area, there are options to choose "Combined Positions", such as RB+WR+TE or WR+TE. 

These combined positions are purely used for league's that see and consider that block of positions as one single position. DO NOT CONFUSE THESE AS "FLEX" POSITIONS, WHICH IS A CONCEPT USED FOR STARTING LINEUPS.

Scenario 1:

If you league allows a team's roster to hold 1 QB, 1-2 RB, 1-2 WR, 2 TE:
Edit Positions to be:
QB MIN 1 / MAX 1
RB MIN 1 / MAX 2
WR MIN 1 / MAX 2
TE MAX 2 / MAX 2

Scenario 2:

If your league allows a team's roster to hold 1 QB / 1 RB / 1 WR / 1 TE / 3 RB,WR,TE
Edit Positions to be:
QB MIN 1 / MAX 1
RB MIN 1 / MAX 4
WR MIN 1 / MAX 4
TE MAX 1 / MAX 4

Many league will confuse this situation and want to use the "Combined RB+WR+TE position", but that is incorrect. You will want to leverage the MIN / MAX areas, and keep positions separate

Scenario 3:

If your league allows a team's roster to hold 1 QB / 1-2 RB  / 1 Combined WR+TE
QB: MIN 1 / MAX 1
RB: MIN 1 / MAX 2
WR/TE: Min 1 / Max 1

In this league, they consider the WR+TE as a single combined position. Again, it is NOT a flex, but just a single combined position, where WR/TEs are considered the exact same.
