My player in basketball was a late scratch, yahoo should allow to switch to another player in later game if they never touch court

This way users can swap players who are late scratches with the "O" out designation with players from other games that have not started yet. So if status = out that player would not be locked but would remain editable. Paul George was scratched a minute before tip-off and yet still owned by 30% in a few of the games tonight. I have been burned by this many times over the years. Other apps allow you to swap scratched players which is a nice and FAIR feature.

It's your responsibility to keep up with your contests and the news about the players. If you don't have the time, don't enter

Its absolutely ridiculous how many times I've lost money because a game with some of my players has gotten postponed. Obviously the postponed game hasn;t startesd so there should be NO reason why I shouldn't be able to switch to a player who's game hasn't started yet. THIS IS RIDICULOUS.

Or to add on this, postponed games due to weather/Covid. Once the scheduled game time starts, the player is locked - that should not be the case. Additionally, there should be notifications for postponed games when you have a player in your lineup

I second and somewhat would like to see a function to switch out any player at anytime, w/ the stipulation that you are giving up that roster slot and half your salary on the player still. eg:
You have 8 players drafted. Lebron is playing a 7:00 game. It's 7:45 and he hasn't played, or has just gone down w/ an injury on 5 points. You can forfit hit 5 points, still have him taking up that spot in your lineup, however his salary drops to half of what it was (he costs $27 now and receives an automatic 0). You now can switch out your later players and use that remaining salary. I know it sounds kind of complicated, but it would be the fairest way to do this I believe.
You could also just keep players unlocked until their first in game action, I don't really see how that could be taken advantage of.
