Dropped Players Are Locked

As a reminder, quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends that are cut during Week 11, Week 12 and Week 13 free agent bidding processes are now REMOVED from the free agent pool and may not be re-acquired by any team for the remainder of the season. Dropped defenses and kickers will still be available for acquisition. This is done to minimize the possibility of potential collusion.

And as a reminder, even if injuries or other issues derailed your 2021 season, make sure you are still setting your lineups! Please don't anger the fantasy gods, and keep karma on your side for 2022 by being competitive this weekend for the rest of the year. :)
