    How to pick up a player to put on IR?

    Right now I have a full squad 9F/4D/2G/3BN and have 1 IR spot which is empty. Im not able to pick up a player to add to my IR (makes sense). However, If I drop a player to pick up Hartnell and then put him on IR, will I have an empty spot to pick up another player? And If I pick up the same player I dropped in the first place, will this ruin my waiver wire position (1)?

    • You will not be able to re-add the player you drop until they have cleared waivers, so no, it won't affect your waiver position.

      You WILL get an open spot though, by dropping a player, adding an IR player and putting him on the IR. Then you can add a new player, or wait for your original player to clear waivers and then add him back. It will not let you put in a waiver claim for a player you drop though.

    • Whenever I am looking to drop one player for another, I'll always add and injured player first and put him on the IR. I've picked up a lot of great players this way.

    • Yes to both questions, unless you wait until the waiver has passed and for that player to go onto FA before picking him up.
