In yahoo fantasy football when does a player who is on IR become active? Is it when he returns to practice or when he is eligible to play?

    He is officially on IR until he is eligible to be activated. Then when the league injury report is posted (first one is on Tuesday) is when the player changes designation from IR to usually Q and then gets updated through injury reports during week. Teams are usually not going to remove a player from IR unless they are ready to start playing.

    There isn't a setting for this. The only thing that matters is when his status changes from O (out) to Q (questionable) or D (doubtful). I imagine that happens when he practices, but if it's a limited practice, they might call it D or even still O.

    As soon as that O changes, he's not IR eligible and you have to drop someone and move him before you can make any roster changes.
