    Initial roster

    How long do we have to keep the players given to us for our initial rosters? Most of the players i got are terrible.

    mine sucked also......you can get rid of them after the initial draft and before you sign contracts.....then you can go after the free agents that are better than the initial guys.

    Yeah, recognize that the initial rosters are composed of players who weren't in the top 600+ performers in the league the previous season. We want to keep the top players in the veteran draft so people can have control over their starting lineups. Occasionally you'll get lucky and get a good player who was injured the previous year or a good rookie who rode the bench, but the initial roster is by and large going to be the bottom half of your roster. And as smackawits says, you'll have opportunities for roster turnover in the initial free agency.

    As background, our initial play testing had everyone draft all 53 players. That sounds fun in theory, but in practice it was exhausting and took a lot of time. We've considered other ways to flesh out the roster, but a random draw was (so far) deemed to be the best tradeoff.

    Injured at the beginning of 2021. He is not draftable, but will be available through free agency, before simulations.

    You can use the trade for draft picks in the rookie draft or the first player draft.
