Unlike our Head-to-Head contests, there are no limits to how many swaps you can process in the salary cap game. However, swaps will come at a cost to contestants.
When swapping players, there is a penalty fee to pay for dropping an underperforming player. The remaining salary of the player you are dropping – 20% is returned to you to pick a new player.
It is important to note, swapping players who are injured or in an inactive status, will not be charged the 20% swapping fee.
From your Dashboard, select the contest you wish to swap a player in.
Click on the ‘Lineup Editor’ option on the next screen.
Select the player you wish to swap from your roster in the right pane. This player will be highlighted with a red border.
Then select which player you wish to add to your roster from the player’s list. You will be able to see the salary refunded to you, the 20% swap fee and the salary of the new player you have chosen.
To complete the swap, click on ‘Swap’ from the roster section in the right pane. You will also be able to see the remaining salary you had prior to the swap, the overall change in salary available, and your remaining salary once the swap is completed.
You will also see how the swap affects your game opportunities, the change to your season average for your overall team as well as the change to your overall projected points.
Clicking swap will present you with a confirmation screen. Click confirm to complete your swap.
