In the inaugural ottoneu Fantasy Football season, a team over limits would still score points, despite having too many players or not enough cap space. I’ve just pushed out a small change ahead of the season to clarify this situation. As (now) described on the rules page:
If a team has more than 20 rostered players or not enough cap space to roster 20 players, the team will be locked out of normal activities until a player is cut or moved off the team via trade. These activities include:
- Accruing points in any weekly matchup. Players will be moved to the bench if their NFL game starts while their ottoneu team is over roster or salary limits.
- Setting lineups
- Offering or accepting trades
- Bidding on auctions
If you do see a team accruing points while over limits, please reach out via email or on this thread.
