ESPN doesn't have a "Rosters" tab unless you go to history. But those are rosters from last season. Is it possible to import from the "Keepers" tab?  I tried but it didn't work.

I can not get rosters to import from ESPN either.

Can you try one more time?  It'll send me more details error info. Thanks

The problem is that there is no "League/Rosters" option.

Are these drafted leagues?

I have some work to do on ESPN Draft Tracking and team imports.  I'll have those readyTuesday at the latest.

It's a keeper league. We keep 28.

I found the rosters link, and it worked.  Under the League tab, there is a link to rosters. When you click it, it pulls up all the rosters in the league.  I was trying to upload rosters individually.

I'm having a bit of difficulty importing rosters from a drafted ESPN league. I think I'm doing everything properly, but I receive an error message.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hi there - 

I typically update my ESPN league rosters weekly on BM after waivers run each Sunday using the copy/paste method from the ESPN site to the Team Players page.

However, tonight, the editor window in which to paste the rosters is not showing up at the bottom of the Team Players page, so there is nowhere to paste the output.

Tried to refresh page in multiple browsers and devices.  

Is anyone else replicating this issue?

You should be able to use the ESPN import on the right and avoid the copy/paste method.  I'll restore this method as a backup.

Thanks, Ken. I was getting an error message through the ESPN import earlier, but got it to work. All good. Thanks as always for the quick reply!

Is CBS import broken? I keep getting a bad binary string error or something

I have added some debugging if you can both try one more time.

String or binary data would be truncated. The statement has been terminated.

Attempted again. This is the error message received when either attempting import from login terminal or the text field below the instructions

Ken, is there a limit on how many players we can import?  I am importing about 1300 projections currently and the page only says that I have "999" projections.  Is the display wrong or are we getting cut off at 1000 players?

There is no cutoff, but if you're league is really deep, we may not have all of your players in the database.  Are there significant players missing?

I've already done the matching and eliminating of players you don't have in your DB.  I can't really tell if anyone is missing either, I haven't noticed anything like that just concerned that it says I've imported 300 fewer projections than I imported.

When I do them individually I get more than 500 projections for each sheet (I do batters and pitchers separately).
