Transaction Deadlines - 2013
And Weekly BWB Schedule
Dates are for roster changes and lineup changes.
Players signed in one week are not available for lineups until
the following week.
Players cut in one week may still be used in that week's lineups.
Traded players change teams the following week - just like
with signings and cuts.
NEW - All transactions due by
Noon Eastern Time on listed dates.
New leagues will fit into this schedule
after all phases of their drafts are complete.
Major League Games: These are the MLB games used for
collecting batters' stats for the fantasy games that week.
Signing Pct: The amount of the player's salary you need to
pay to sign him.
Cut Pct: The amount of salary rebate
you receive for cutting players (no rebates to players under
contract or with salaries 200 or lower).
Trade Pct: The
signing/cut percentages for players in trades (continues to
pro-rate all season).
Dates to keep in mind:
