So I come to find out that one of my auto-drafted defensive players was a healthy scratch for the last game and will be for the upcoming game, so I added a player that is playing tomorrow to fill the gap. For some reason he doesn't show up on my roster for tomorrow. I understand that you don't want people adding and dropping players each day to run up the totals in the scoring categories (as evidenced by the 4 transactions per week limit) but now I picked up some dude that I can't even play tomorrow. Did I just waste one of my 4 transactions on a player that I can't use tomorrow (which essentially renders a third of his week useless)?
I just added a player that is available for me tomorrow so I'm not sure what the issue is... If you're talking about Fowler, I see him on your list starting Thursday but he doesn't have a game tomorrow.

I added a Fowler last night and he has a game today, but he doesn't show up on my roster until tomorrow. It's like there is a one day grace period before you can actually use a player. I'm used to being able to pick up a player and use him that day provided the first game of the day hasn't started. In your case, the player you just picked up could be started today (provided he has a game today) because the start of the first game isn't for another 2 hours.

I see the setting now. Had to do a bit of reading on the help pages. Looks like there are three settings for deadlines.
Daily - Tomorrow: All transactions will be reflected in your lineup for the following day. Deadline is 11:59 pm PT each night. Daily - Today: You will be able to add free agents to your roster for the current day so long as all transactions are completed no later than five minutes before the start of each player's game. Weekly - On Monday: All roster moves made during the week will be reflected in your lineup the following Monday. Deadline is 11:59 PT Sunday night.
We are set up for Daily - Tomorrow. I would've had to get the transaction in by 11:59 pm PT last night for Fowler to show up today. I made the move at 11:38 pm AKDT which is 12:38 am PT.

No worries. I'm sure that's the default anyway. In my rush to put together a ESPN league I accidently designated C, LW, and RW as forwards. I imagine it's a default setting, because I wouldn't have chosen to set it up that way. Now you can start as many of each position as you want and don't have to worry about position eligibility.
Now that I know about the deadline, I won't make that mistake again.
Haha this method is a lot different than I thought. Seems to be in your best interest if you make changes daily. I'm far too lazy for that. You also have to pay attention to what your opponent is doing well at and try to adjust to beat that. SO MUCH EFFORT!
