Registration is closed for the 2017-2018 fantasy season.
NFL-Managed Leagues are leagues created and auto-run by NFL.com with standard/default settings for scoring, rosters, transactions, seeding, and schedule (as shown in the table below). Our fantasy players like these leagues for their simplicity, because the majority of fantasy football strategy content is geared towards leagues with default settings, and because no team owner has any power over the other.
Custom Leagues are leagues created and run by an NFL.com user with customizable scoring, roster, transaction, seeding, division, and schedule settings (as shown in the table below). Some users find these leagues more exciting, as they have more freedom to enjoy scoring and settings other than those which are found in our NFL-Managed Leagues. PPR (points per reception) and IDP (individual defensive player) are two examples of settings that are exclusive to custom leagues.
Ultimate Experience Leagues pay a fee in order to play for championship rings, autographed footballs and jerseys, officiating flags, game coins, and more. Pricing varies by prize. You may choose to join an Ultimate Experience League or upgrade your personal Custom League.
Autopick Leagues are drafted automatically according to site or personal rankings. This option has its own button in the League Directory.
