So doing fantasy for many years but have never done an IR spot.

I assume that this spot is only for those listed as IR or O (not a draft and stash) which then frees up a roster spot for a replacement, but once the player comes back a player has to be dropped or moved to IR if eligible. Am I right or at least close?

Yeah OUT or on IR. I have Mathews on it right now. Sometimes you can keep a player on IR indefinitely, but will not be able to make any roster moves while doing so. Last year I was prompted to make a roster change when the player no longer carried an "out" designation. So we'll see what happens as we go.

On MFL IR is strictly IR. In other words, the NFL team must declare a player to be on IR (and out for the season) for you to put a player in the IR spot. Simply "out" won't work. But not sure about ESPN...

On ESPN any player that has the "O" or "IR" tag on their name can go on it. However, if that tag goes away while you still have them in your IR slot it won't let you make any roster moves until you've dropped someone and taken that guy out of your IR slot.

Follow-up question: is there a special designation for players like AJ McCarron, who's so worthless he can't even break his collarbone when I need him to?

Further follow-up: anyone want to trade for AJ McCarron? Rats.

I suggest calling the Buffalo Bil— oh, wait.

MFL IR is customizable. I am in 2 leagues on MFL where an ‘out’ designation is designatable.

On ESPN, ‘D’ (doubtful) is the default qualification. But commissioners can set the qualifications stiffer (O or IR).
