All-Star week scoring in Fantasy Basketball

Hi all,

 

The fantasy league "week" that includes the NBA All-Star game takes place in Yahoo Fantasy Basketball from February 13-26, 2017.

 

Here's how fantasy leagues will be affected:

  • Stats earned in the All-Star Game are not counted in scoring for Yahoo Sports Fantasy Basketball.
  • There are no changes to your weekly transaction limit during the All-Star gameweek.
    - So if your league features a 3-transaction limit, managers will only be able to make 3 player adds via waivers or free agency during this Fantasy week.
  • All-Star Game live stats will be displayed during the game itself and points are displayed on your team page and in StatTracker, but these won't count toward your league scoring totals.

The All-Star Game points will be cleared in an overnight update.

 

For any feedback and concerns, please visit our Fantasy Basketball feedback board.

For weekly leagues, you will have the chance to change your lineup before the 2nd Monday.

Question:

 

Week 17 will incorporate two weeks worth of games, but will we be able to adjust our line ups midway through the 2 week period, or will lineups remain locked all throughout.

 

Please clarify!

 

Thank you!

depends if you have weekly or daily, as daily lock, this period runs from feb 13th, and then games start again thursday the 23rd

Thank you for responding!

We are a weekly set league!
So I figured the line up would stick throughout the entire duration of Fantasy Week 17, but I also considered that they'd allow a chance to switch up the line ups after the all star break weekend.

Please further advise!
Thank you!

Is there anyone else that is able to verify this information? I just want to make sure, because this upcoming matchup determines whether I have a shot at make the playoffs or not, and my line up looks very different if I was able to switch it up halfway through or not.

Thank you!
