A number of the best players in the game will be on this list throughout the season. When a player is on the list, he cannot be waived from a team under any circumstances. The "Can't Cut" list, which will be updated when necessary, will prevent managers at the bottom of the standings from changing the league dynamics by waiving all of their outstanding players.
The Can't Cut List is designed for leagues with 12 teams. Since teams in smaller leagues may include several elite players, using the Can't Cut List for leagues smaller than 12 teams might limit the ability of managers to drop unwanted players, particularly those with short-term injuries.
