What happens when a player is injured, cut, traded, or retires?

Injured Players

Offensive players (QB, RB, WR, TE & K) who don’t play in their game because of injury or any other reason will not earn any fantasy points in Reignmakers contests.

Defensive players will still record points for their team’s defense, even if the player is injured.

Cut Players

Players who become free agents will not be included in the player pool for a Reignmakers contest. If a player becomes a free agent after the player pool was already created, they will remain on their original team for that contest, but they will not earn any fantasy points.

  • Defensive players are included as well.
    • Note: (Defensive players who are free agents will not earn fantasy points.)
Traded Players
The player image shown on a card will remain the same, regardless of what team they play for. If a player is traded, they will continue earning fantasy points on their new team as long as the card is still eligible for the given contest.
Retired Players

Players who retire will not be included in the player pool for a Reignmakers contest. If a player retires after the player pool was already created, they will remain on their original team for that contest, but they will not earn any fantasy points.

  • Defensive players are included as well.
    • Note: (Defensive players who are retired will not earn fantasy points.)

Notes:

  • If a player is released, and no longer attached to a team, they will not receive fantasy points.
  • Franchise Score allows customers to obtain points for owning cards of certain rarities or sets. These types of cards for retired or injured players will accumulate the same level of scoring as active players for this purpose. Cards in future years will also have additional use which may or may not include gameplay depending on the player’s status.
