Changes to which designations bestow an extra roster spot

Hi everyone,

Going forward, the following injury designations will result in an extra roster spot for any team rostering a player with said designation:

  • IR
  • NFI
  • COVID-19
  • PUP

NFI was not considered previously and PUP did not give a roster spot previously. Given the IR changes the NFL made in 2020 due to COVID-19, PUP and NFI both became on par with the IR designation in terms of the weight of the team’s decision to place a player on those lists. We are trying to reflect that in Ottoneu Fantasy Football.

This change is live now.

These designations are confirmed to not grant extra roster spots during the auction draft - every team will be limited to 20 players during the auction draft and will get the benefit of extra roster spots immediately after the draft.
