    Default Empty spot on my roster

    I put a guy on waiver a few days ago for Trouba. Well now Trouba is on the bench and I have an empty D spot...WTF? Why didn't Trouba go right into my starting spot? I tried doing a swap but it did not change. Thanks

    Most Yahoo leagues won't put someone right into the starting spot, and automatically starts them on your bench. They do the same for football and basketball as well.

    You have to put him into your lineup, so as soon as you do, he'll be starting for you.

    When is the first day of your weekly starts? Monday? Well dial ahead to Monday, October 14 and I think you will find Trouba sitting in the D slot.

    Is this for your league in your signature?

    So it's your weekly league. Why do you have an open D slot then? If it's from your move for Trouba then that should only apply from the beginning of next week, and you will put him in the lineup. Your current lineup wouldn't change, so the only way you have an open D slot now is due to having it empty when the roster locked at the beginning of this week. Can you clarify?

    I'm confused. I put a guy on waivers about 3 days ago for Trouba

    Ok, let's take a step back.

    On what day each week do your rosters lock?

    If you made your move after the rosters have locked for the week, then that move will not reflect in your lineup until the following week. Trouba would initially be on your bench (standard Yahoo process) but you have until the next roster freeze to put him into your lineup. In this situation, you should not have an empty slot this week (presuming the rest of your lineup is filled).

    If you made that move before the rosters have locked for the week, then as mentioned Trouba would initally be put on your bench until you insert him into your lineup. However, if you attempted to add Trouba into your lineup after the roster freeze, then you are stuck with an empty slot until next week.

    What's your situation?

    Ok , I moved ahead to the 14th and this is what happened.

    Trouba who I got from waivers is now on D.
    Seth jones who's is currently on D is no longer on my roster.
    P. Wietcioch(who was not on my roster ) is now on the bench . I think I dropped Jones for him.

    But my D spot is still empty...... I'm so pissed. Should I move a guy from now from my bench to D and that should fill the empty spot come the 14th? I have no D guys on the bench. Thanks

    I'm thinking you dropped the guy on the 6th, then the roster locked overnight, and then put in Trouba in until afterwards. Am I right? That would leave a D slot empty this week and Trouba could only go into your lineup on the 14th. If you have a spare D to insert into your empty slot (on the 14th, not now), then yeah, do that. Remember, your current roster is locked so it doesn't matter now where they sit. Your focus now is to have a full lineup on the 14th. Whether that's from an available bench D - confused, you said you could move a D there but no bench D? - or via FA/waivers.
