To take Crick’s place on the roster and along the defensive front, the Broncos said they’ve signed former Seahawks nose tackle Ahtyba Ruben, who started every game in Seattle in 2015 and ’16 but was cut this year after the Seahawks traded for Sheldon Richardson.

Lineup Changes: You can choose to lock lineups when the first game of the week starts, typically Thursday evening. This is a good setting if your owners don’t have a lot of time to spend obsessing about their teams throughout the week, because roster moves can be made only Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (prior to kickoff). The downside is that since you have to set your official lineups by Thursday evening most weeks, you can’t wait for injury information you may get Saturday or Sunday morning to make lineup and waiver moves.
Most leagues use the setting that allows you to change your lineup right up to the start of each individual player’s kickoff that week. This allows you to find out if a player is active/inactive due to injury, react to the score of your game against your opponent (e.g., using a safer play if you are in the lead or a riskier upside option if you’re behind), etc. It also helps avoid situations where a player gets hurt in warm-ups or gets benched unexpectedly.
