New COVID IR options

We have updated the Fantasy Injured Reserve options on MFL this season to help you handle COVID related illnesses and player Opt Outs in your fantasy league. For starters, players that are out because of a COVID related illness or because they are required to quarantine will be labeled with (C) after their name on the various reports and screens in your league. Players that will miss the entire season because they chose to Opt Out will be labeled with (H) after their name.

If you want to be able to allow franchises in your league to put those players on the Fantasy IR list, then you can select these options on the Injured Reserve Setup screen:

  • Can a player be put on IR when he’s away from the team due to a contract dispute or holdout?
  • Can a player be put on IR when he’s on the NFL Reserve/COVID-19 list?

There is also a new option available to allow only players with a COVID injury designation to be placed on the Taxi Squad.

To learn more about the various options and how to utilize them for your league, be sure to check out this COVID FAQ article in our Help Center.
