Determining player eligibility in Fantasy Basketball
Players may be eligible at multiple positions during the current Yahoo Sports Fantasy Basketball season. Initial position eligibility was determined based on past participation and information supplied by the teams during the off-season to our data provider.
Please review the following notes about in-season changes to position eligibility:
- All position eligibility requests are reviewed, compiled, and forwarded to our data provider, which makes the final decision on position eligibility.
- Because Yahoo Sports is not responsible for modifying position eligibility, we cannot speculate on future changes or comment on decisions concerning about individual players.
- There are no set criteria (minimum number of games, minutes at a new position, etc.) for position eligibility. A new position will be added when our data provider determines that a player's primary position has changed, or he is logging sufficient playing time at a secondary position to warrant adding that position to their eligibility.
Please note: If the position change is considered temporary or situational, position eligibility will NOT be adjusted. For example, a shooting guard who plays at small forward for a game or two to account for an injury, then returns to SG, will NOT receive SF eligibility.
Players will not lose position eligibility when moving from one position to another. If a point guard moves to shooting guard during the season, he will be eligible for the remainder of the season at both PG and SG.
All players earn fantasy points for all of your league's categories, regardless of their position.
Please note: If you would like to voice your opinion on a particular player, feel free to provide feedback to Yahoo Sports directly.
