No DHs in ESPN League. Help Please! WHIR

Postby bobnerns » Wed Mar 30, 2011 10:57 pm

My ESPN fantasy baseball league just had it's draft tonight. We started this league last season as 10-man H2H 5x5 standard ESPN 25-man roster. All players were eligible to be drafted. This season, we added 4 teams but kept everything else the exact same. No keepers, same settings. However, during the draft we discovered that no DH were in the draft. That means Adam Lind, David Ortiz, Vlad Guerrero, Luke Scott and others with only DH eligibilty were no where to be found. Players like Aubrey Huff that has DH eligibility but also 1B and OF were available.

Has anyone had this problem or know how to correct it?

They should be OK if used as a Utility.

Not sure what you mean by this statement or if I clearly stated my problem.

Several players, mainly Adam Lind, David Ortiz, and Vlad Guerrero are NOT available whatsoever. They were not in the draft lobby, they are not on waivers/free agency. They are no where to be found.

So every batter with only DH eligibility is not available.

Anyone know how to add these players back into our league?

Did you use Utility as one of your positions? If not that is why they are not available. They do not fit any position in your league. If you add Utility, the should show in the player pool.
