Below are step by step instructions on how to move an existing dynasty league over to Sleeper.
The overall concept is quite simple:
- Create a league
- Fill out rosters on your draftboard (manually add last years rosters or current rosters if you're switching or cloning a league midseason)
- Complete the draft
- Invite your league mates and assign them teams
- Add a rookie draft
Step 1: Create a league
First, you should create a league and choose Dynasty:
Step 2: Fill out rosters on the draftboard
There should be a Preview Your Draft Lobby link where you can make picks on your draftboard.
Once you are on the draftboard, you can then start filling it out with players in the correct columns by clicking on the squares:
Note: You do not need to worry about inviting leaguemates yet, they can be assigned later once they join.
Step 3: Complete the draft and make any final edits
Once your draftboard is complete, you can then begin the draft and instantly complete the draft as well.
After, you'll want to adjust / move around future draft picks. You can also adjust draft picks by following the directions here: https://support.sleeper.app/leagues/fantasy-football-leagues/how-can-i-fix-a-roster
Step 4: Invite your league mates
You can now invite league mates under team settings and assign them teams.
Step 5: Rookie Draft
If you have not done your rookie draft yet, simply click on Add Supplemental Draft under League Settings and you will be able to conduct one. If you're switching your league before the NFL draft, adding a supplemental draft will allow you to trade rookie draft picks.
That's it! Welcome to Sleeper!
