The votes are in and the lone amendment that reached the voting threshold for this season has been approved by a majority vote. The subsequent voting required went to a runoff and has also been approved by a majority vote.
In an attempt to curb the proliferation of streaming in the league, especially in the postseason. There will now be a weekly acquisitions limit in place. Each team will now be allowed to make four (4) player acquisitions per week for a total of 96 over the course of a full 24 week season, including the playoffs.
It is not clear at this time if these limits will impact preseason acquisitions or if all preseason acquisitions will count toward week one.
In addition to the limit on acquisitions, the bench has been permanently expanded from four (4) players to five (5) – a carry-over from the unique rules put in place for the COVID-19 shortened 2020 season. All other rules put in place for 2020 have been reverted to our standard rules for 2021.
Good luck to everyone in 2021.
