Our Game Pick Mode is a new format that we believe will reshape how fantasy basketball is played moving forward.
With that could come a lot of questions on what might happen given certain unique situations, so we try to answer most of those below.
When are rosters locked?
Each week, you have to select one game per player to start them in. Your individual players will be locked into your roster once their selected game begins. After that, you will not be able to move or drop that player until that matchup ends, which is early Monday morning.
If the player plays zero minutes, they'll be unlocked after the game is final. Then, you can choose a later game (if possible) or sub out that player for another who has an upcoming game that same week.
When can I drop a player?
You cannot drop someone who you started until the matchup week is complete. This means if they have already started, you'll need to wait until early Monday morning to drop them.
If you want to drop a player on your bench, or who hasn't started your selected game, you can do that at any time.
What if I don't select a game for a player?
By default, Sleeper will select the last game of the week for every player. Those points will count as normal even if you do not change the selection.
What if my player doesn't play in a selected game?
If an user selects a game where the NBA player had zero minutes played, Sleeper will de-select your selected game after the game is over so that you are free to sub out the player or choose a later game.
If an user selects the last game of the week for an NBA player (ie Sunday), and the NBA player has zero minutes played, you would get 0 points for that player.
Sleeper will unlock the NBA player after the NBA game is over.
