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.

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..
