Please choose a captain for your lineup
  • We require that you choose a player to be the captain of your lineup.
  • Click the lock icon for the player you wish to use as the captain of your lineup. Tip: Unlock and lock your captain again, or choose a new captain, if you see this message more than once.
  • The player you select as your Captain will score 1.5x the standard fantasy point value for each statistic, but drafting a player as Captain will cost more salary than drafting them as UTIL.
