    IR Question

    New Commish for fantasy football this season. I assigned 2 IR positions for roster. How exactly does the IR work as I've never been in a league that had this setting? Does player have to be on NFL IR roster or can injured players be placed in there and another player added? Similar to Baseball's DL. Thanks for any help.

    • thank you for responses! Always nice to learn something new!

    • you could put someone who is on IR with a designation to return or full IR onto your IR spot. typically this is a feature best for keeper leagues in my opinion. So say for instance Calvin breaks his ankles in a freak accident. I could put him on my IR spot thus keeping him on my team and keeping him eligible to use as a keeper next year. Also dynasty leagues would use this feature. not very useful in a standard league

      • It's useful for non-keeper leagues as well it just won't be used very commonly. I was able to stash Vereen there last year and used him down the stretch. I probably would have dropped him otherwise. If this is a non-keeper though, I wouldn't give more than 1 IR spot. If it is a keeper, I would give one or two depending on if it's a smaller or large league.
