COVID-19 Impacts on Yahoo Fantasy Football Leagues

The Yahoo Fantasy team has made some changes to Fantasy Football leagues to make managing your teams a bit easier in the time of COVID-19. Here’s what you need to know.

  • The default for IR slots in Public and Pro Leagues has increased from 1 to 2.
  • In Private Leagues, we have increased the maximum number of IR slots from 5 to 10.
  • The NFL has stated that players with a positive COVID test will be placed on the IR for 3 weeks.

  Note - There is not a specific "COVID IR" titled roster spot in the game. The traditional IR spot is what will be used for players who test positive for COVID.
