    hi. was wondering if you could answer a question for me. I have Daniel Alfredson on my fantasy team, and he has been hurt fo a few days now and is gonna miss about 6 weeks i think. why do some teams wait a while before puting the player on IR?? it stinks for the fantasy owner!! lol.

      Hi Dan,

      I think it has something to do with LTIR offering cap relief while regular IR does not. Considering most teams do not carry the maximum 23 roster spots, it isn’t necessary to place a player on IR unless the spot is needed. IN addition, Yahoo! is notorious for not putting a player on IR with hockey, which stinks considering they usually are on point with Baseball and Football. That is my best stab at it, and yes it stinks 🙂
