Important: Position Eligiblity Update for 2022 season

Due to NFL roster listings and official depth changes over the past couple years with the uptick in players having hybrid positions during games we have seen a new position listing pop on some NFL officially listed rosters on their team websites. The EDGE position mainly but also some others like SAM, WILL, MIKE and possibly others aside from the standard DL/DE/DT for lineman and he many other LB variations like LB, OLB, ILB and others. Due to this the Executive Committee has met and agreed unanimously to add the following to the constitution effective for the 2022 season beginning with position eligibility for incoming 2022 rookies eligible for the college draft and they subsequently the FA auction for undrafted players.

  • For the purposes of BSL position eligibility, any player that is listed on a NFL team’s official roster, depth chart, and/or gamebook, as EDGE will be considered a DL in our league database. Within the standard position eligibility change rule if that player does show up in a gamebook at a LB variable position (LB, OLB, MLB, etc.) after 2 consecutive games they will be changed to LB regardless of listings on official rosters or published depth charts as is in line with any other player.
