you can change your team at any given time before the deadline so if you pick player x now and he loses let's say 10 minutes before the deadline you can still replace him. In reality it means that some matches already have been played yes, but usually it's not that many. I think the monday deadline is that people have the chance to make their teams as sometimes draws come out late. In GS and MAsterevents deadline is always before the main draw begins, these draws are out early always so...
