Friday, June 23, 2023-Friday, June 30, 2023

At some point during this time period, the commissioner will formally announce whether the 2023 FFL Draft/Free Agency Day will be held at a physical location or via Zoom.

The commissioner will release a list of players eligible to be bid on during FFL Free Agency Day. Coaches will have one week to request the addition of players to this list.

Sunday, July 2, 2023

This is the final day for coaches to request additions to the FFL Free Agency Day list. After this date passes, only players released between July 3rd and the day before the FFL Draft (July 22nd) will be added to the list.

Sunday, September 3, 2023 - Prior to Week 1

This is the deadline for coaches to submit their depth charts to the league. Per Rule 3-A, if a coach fails to submit a depth chart prior to this deadline, the commissioner will set one for them using the player rankings from a fantasy football website of his choosing. If the depth chart includes rookies who were not yet activated to the main roster, these players will be presumed activated.

This is also the last day to return drafted rookies to the practice squad that had been activated to the main roster. All drafted rookies are automatically placed on the practice squad until they are activated. Once the season starts rookies who are on active rosters cannot be put on the practice squad, and once a practice squad rookie is activated to a team's main roster he cannot move back down to the practice squad.

Sunday, October 29, 2023 - Week 8

The deadline to make trades is today at noon EST. After this deadline passes, there can be no more trades made until the league re-opens in March or April of 2024.

The deadline to sign free agents, activate players from the practice squad, or place players on injured reserve for the 2023 season is the kickoff of the 1:00 PM EST games. Once this deadline has passed, any players who are still on waivers can be claimed. If a player is received off of waivers and a player is released to make room for him, then that player will not go to waivers and instead will be declared ineligible to be signed (along with all other free agents) for the remainder of the season. All players still on practice squads at this time must remain there until they are activated to the main rosters prior to the FFL re-opening for the 2024 season.

Tuesday, December 12, 2023 - After Week 14

The commissioner will reveal the five nominees for Most Valuable Player and Least Valuable Player, and the three nominees for Rookie of the Year and Coach of the Year.
