Picking up a player cost me position spots

I started an auction for Garrison Mathews with the intent to pick him up and immediately cut him to relieve his cap hit. Once he hit my roster, he was slotted into two G/F positions for Monday and Wednesday, instead of being slotted to the bench. Have I lost those games for the week, or is this a bug?

The matchups page also shows him on the bench for Monday and Wednesday, so I’m wondering what put Mathews into G/F slots for the weekly view.

Seems like a bug to me. Could you link your league or team here?

Sure thing!

Here’s the link to our league: Ottoneu Fantasy Basketball - Index (fangraphs.com)

And I think this should link to my team’s lineup editor: Ottoneu Fantasy Basketball - Schedule Lineup (fangraphs.com)

Not sure if this is related but now projected games remaining is showing an incorrect number for me. My matchup page shows 13 (which is correct), but projected games remaining shows 14. https://ottoneu.fangraphs.com/basketball/26/schedule_lineup/268/2919

Did you cut or add anyone this week?


Looks good now though. Might’ve just been me.

Not sure if it’s related, but sounds similar to something I’ve noticed which is when a player is locked in a lineup spot (5 minutes before the game), but hasn’t gotten a minute yet, they’re removed from the projected games. So, I’ll have 0 in the projected games remaining for say guard, and then if Jrue Holiday’s game is close to starting I’ll go up to 1, until he gets a minute recorded, and then I’ll go back to 0. Hope this explanation makes sense!!
