Transaction and lineup deadlines in Yahoo Fantasy

There are certain times you might not be able to make changes to your players. Fantasy Baseball, Basketball, and Hockey have different roster and lineup deadlines depending on your league's settings. Only Commissioners in Private Leagues can edit this setting.

Deadlines for lineup changes

Adjust players between positions until:
  • Public, Pro, and Private Leagues using default settings - The start of the player's real-life game.
  • Private leagues using weekly roster settings - The start of the first game on the designated day of the week. If there's no game then 11:59PM PT is the deadline.

Deadlines for roster transactions

Add, drop, or trade players by:

  • Weekly roster changes - 11:59PM PT the night before the selected "Weekly Roster" day.
  • Daily - Today roster changes - No deadline; rosters update immediately after a transaction.
  • Daily - Tomorrow roster changes - 11:59 PM PT the night before; rosters are updated the following day.
