- OK - I think I've got this right - the information below your roster about your roster limits and the totals of the players you are keeping for 2019 should now handle the prospects on your team correctly. Let me know if you find any errors in the counting or on the page itself.
- Reposting and updating this note originally posted below on Nov. 24: Effects of the Prospects Roster: (see
the full rule)
- There are no additions or other adjustments allowed to the prospects roster at this time (Week 21 of the 2018 season was the deadline - no changes again until after the 2019 Redistribution Draft)
- If you receive a player in a trade who was on that other team's prospect roster, he enters your roster as one of your 40-man roster players - you can't put him on your prospects list
- Prospects don't count against the 28-player maximum that you may retain on your roster for 2019. 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 13), 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 2019.
