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.

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.

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 can ask my father-in-law. He's played in just about every other fantasy league that we have put together. He was also one of the folks that passed you in the last day of fantasy baseball. It was an epic battle for third place. I'm not sure anyone informed you or badchoices though.

I didn't realize hockey stared tonight. I created a league with the same settings as last year if anyone is interested. The draft is 8:00 ET (2 hours). It's a public league, so I'm expecting it to fill up in the next hour or so.
