- Deadline approaching! - your roster cut
downs to 28 or fewer players is due Sunday night at midnight
- If you have multiple teams, you can check all your teams for errors on the roster limits on one page
- Reminder about how the Prospects Roster works: (see
the full rule)
- Prospects don't count against the 28-player maximum that you may retain on your roster for 2020. So you can keep up to 28 players AND some or all of your prospects.
- You may cut some or all of your prospects, you're not mandated to keep them.
- After the roster carryover decisions (January 19), all prospects will revert to be part of your standard 40-man roster. Keeping prospects will reduce the total number of players you can pick up in the Redistribution Draft.
- After the Redistribution Draft is compete, you can then make moves to put players onto the prospects roster for 2020.
