Joining a League

Joining a league requires a valid NFL.com account. If you do not have an account, you can create one here.

Ways to Join a League:

  1. Take part in a draft in the Live Draft Lobby.
  2. Choose a league to join using the League Directory.
  3. Accept an invitation selecting a link from an emailed invitation.
  4. Accept an invitation by entering a league name and password by pressing "Received An Invite" on the Fantasy Football homepage or in the bottom right of the "Join League" page of the app.

Using the League Directory

In the League Directory, NFL.com users find fantasy leagues sorted by league type, draft type, draft date, and draft format. The "Details" link under League Notes provides the league settings.

Select "Join" for open leagues, or "Apply" for those that require application. Fill out team details and SUBMIT to be redirected to the league to begin preparing for the draft.

Joining an Autopick League

Select "Enroll in Autopick Draft," found to the top right of the League Directory, fill out the following page and select SUBMIT. Then select GO TO YOUR AUTOPICK HOME on the following page. Editing the Pre-Draft Rankings in the Team Home is optional. Select "Change Status to Ready" to be placed into a queue for the next available Autopick league. Team managers receive an email notice when the new league has drafted and the league is ready to visit. A link to your league will be included in this email. This may take a few days outside of popular draft times.

Joining a Friend's League

Players can join a friend's custom Fantasy league using one of these three methods:

  1. Select "Join Now" in the invitation. (If the invitation link is not working, copy and paste it directly into the browser.)

  2. Select "Join League" and then "Received Invite" in the NFL Fantasy Football app and enter League ID and password.
  3. Select "Received a Fantasy Football Invite?" from the NFL Fantasy homepage and enter League ID and password.

Error messages most often occur during joining because two users are using the same device to invite and accept, and the inviting user has not signed out. Please try signing out of all NFL.com accounts, opening the link in a private browser window, or using a different browser.
