The CBS API provides most of the information required for The Machine to understand your league configuration. However, there are settings that we aren’t able to obtain with 100% certainty, such as how many teams go to the playoffs. In many cases The Machine makes reasonable assumptions based on known settings and on this page you can review and modify the assumed settings so The Machine will provide more accurate results.

League Setup Check

When you navigate away from the League Setup pages The Machine will perform a check to ensure the league setup options you set are valid. If there is an invalid or incomplete setting, a warning message pops-up with details about the issue and a suggest of how to fix it. You will not be able to navigate away from the League Setup pages until your setup passes the check.


The Machine detects when you make changes that require recalculation. When you navigate away the League Setup pages, assuming you your setup passes all checks, you will be directed to the Home page. The Machine will rerun the full season calculations based on your new league settings.
