Can someone explain how benched players are scored in a rotisserie?
Is scoring only calculated from active players, and not from players on the bench? Does this mean I need to actively be changing around my lineup in a rotisserie by activating/deactivating players daily? Or do bench players' activities still count?
Players on bench do not count. Dressing/benching daily depends on your league. First, does your league allow daily changes? Next, is their a "Games Played" limit at each position. If there is a GP limit, you don't want to move players daily as you'll use all your games by mid-season and have to wait. If you are in a league that has no GP limit and daily line-up changes (stupid IMO), then daily changes are the only way to stay close.
Thanks for the reply, really appreciate it and your insight is really helpful. Here are the rules for the league:
Scoring Type: Rotisserie
Max Acquisitions for Entire Season: No maximum
Max Trades for Entire Season No maximum
Trade Reject Time: 2
Trade End Date: March 21, 2013
Allow Draft Pick Trades: Yes
Waiver Time: 2 days
Waiver Type: Continual rolling list
Waiver Mode: Standard
Can't Cut List Provider: Yahoo! Sports
Trade Review: League Votes
Post Draft Players: Follow Waiver Rules
Max Games Played: No maximum
Weekly Deadline: Daily - Tomorrow
Maximum games played per position: No Max
Allow roster changes: Daily - Tomorrow
So if I'm following correctly, bench players don't count for scoring, but since the league I'm in has no maximum games, I can make a change anytime I want? Thanks again for the insight, first time playing fantasy hockey and slowly getting the hang of it..
