Position maximum usage in Fantasy Basketball and Hockey Leagues

Each position on your roster allows for a maximum number of games played. During a normal season, Public Free and Public Prize Basketball and Hockey leagues have a default limit of 82 games per position in Rotisserie leagues, while Head-to-Head leagues have no max limits. Due to the shortened 2020-21 NBA and NHL seasons, we have adjusted the default game limit to 72 for Fantasy Basketball and 56 for Fantasy Hockey.

Stats and info for capped positions

  • A player will count as "played" if they record just 1 second of playing time.
  • Stats will be included in the team total display, but not in the team's season total.
  • Managers will receive credit for all stats earned at a position on the day the cap is reached.
  • Stats will display on the team page and in the StatTracker, but not in the team totals on StatTracker.
