Teams can DFA players to reduce their team to the correct roster size. Contracts stay with players, so you're claiming the player and the contract. If the player clears waivers and is released to Free Agency, the team must cover 67% of the remaining contract in that same season. (Example - SP Pedro Martinez $6/2 - released by BOS would be $8 paid out in current year). Claims are won by reverse order standings at the time of the claim deadline, message the commish to make a claim. Players can be viewed on the team "DFA Squad"

ARI - OF Adam Jones (expiring) - Claim period ends at 9am ET Sunday - Won by MIN

6/24/2019 S and A progressionsericdc20
I totally agree that they should, especially with the slow regression... depending on your league finances though, it could be tough to stack a roster with a lot of S type players.

Also, based on the spreadsheet, it shows U as the only other progression that nets positively... but isn't that random? Doesn't it depend on how many progressions a player has and what type of progression they receive for that season.

For example... if a player has 6 progressions, and they receive a negative progression on their first one, is it likely that the next 5 will all be positive to hit those numbers in the spreadsheet? I always thought it was RNG.
