CBS Sportsline - Move to Injured Eligibility (1 Viewer)

Anybody else experiencing this?

I had an owner attempt to make a transaction request a few hours before Tuesday night's waiver run. Drew Bennett was listed as OUT on the cbs site, but the transaction request wasn't even allowed - it said he was not eligible for moving him to injured.

Does anybody know if these two lists are independet and the best way for an owner to know whether/when a player can be moved to IR?

 
Cannot move a player to injured squad unless NFL puts him on IR.
??!??If that is true, it's new.I find it hard to believe that the cbs system would even bother to perform that kind of crosscheck.I just tried a little experiment and moved a healthy player to IR and back; the system did not interfere.Perhaps the crosscheck occurs when the move to IR is part of an add/drop transaction, but I'm doubting this.

Our league had intended to use the NFL injury report as the only way a player can be considered OUT and therefore IR eligible in our fantasy league. Some of us thought cbs would be linked to the NFL report and were obviously wrong. Either way, we can't figure out why cbs would list him as OUT (regardless of whether or not the NFL had released their report) but not allow moving the player to injured.
 
Here are the injured rules from CBS. In short it lets you put a healthy player on injured... the commish has to police this...

How can I put my players on injured status?

Question

How can I put my players on injured status?

Answer

We use the National Football League's official injury report to update players' injury status (e.g., day-to-day, doubtful, etc.) Since there is not a true DL or IR in football - any player actually placed on IR is lost for the season - your commissioner will have to manually police teams that place players on IR. This cannot be done automatically and if you elect to use an injured spot on your rosters, any player can be placed in that spot.

are you sure there is an injured spot on your rosters/rules?

I think you're onto something. They may have specified an inadequate number of injured players allowed when they setup their league rules...the stuff they are describing with not being allowed to move a player to IR is completely alien to my 5 years experience using the cbs website.
 
I just tested this yesterday so I am fairly certain. If the spot is there it actually should let you put ANY player in that spot....as the post from CBS indicates above.

Our league allows up to 2 players on IR and they do not count towards positional roster limits. I too have never encountered this. What is really odd is that they could not even get a "pending" transaction. It simply denied their request and they couldn't even get it in the waiver run.

Definitely the problem is with the set up. Under "set-up", League Rules, your commish needs to set the "injured players" max to a high(er) number. Our League got fed up with the shenanigans of the NFL coaches and their passion for misleading injury reporting. Anyone recall when Deuce M broke his ankle, and was still appearing as questionable? We dropped our roster sizes down just 1 above our starting team size at each position, allowing for a large free agent pool, and we allow moves to injured status for any reason, including bye weeks. Results have been a very competitive league from week 1 to 17 (we play starting points for title of league champion, and head to head for title of Super Bowl Champ). Since going to this liberal Injured rule and reduced rosters we've had very exciting finishes and no one has swept both titles.
 
CBS is linked to the NFl report. If it says IR, then you cna place them on IR. If it says OUT but does NOT say IR, you're ####ed. You have to change the commissioner settings to basicly allow ANY player to be put on IR, OUT or not, and then regulate teams that may try to abuse this. In our league, if a player is not listed as OUT on friday, then plays on sunday, that player is dropped from the owner's roster into free agency and he has to bid to get him back vs everyone else in a blind bid.

This should do it for us. Thanks, Two Dollars, and to all other posters as well.
 
Yeah, at least until CBS changes this, we've sent in an email making them aware of what's going on (or just adding another email to the pile about this). They are very good at working with their leagues and I'd expect a change if not this season, then the next to make it easier for league commissioners.
