We're thrilled to have you on Sleeper!

In order to get started, there are a couple of different options depending on if your league has already selected keepers or not.

Option 1 - We have already decided on our keepers

Create A League

Once you have signed up and logged in to your Sleeper account, you'll want to create a brand new league. Give your league a name, but hold off on inviting any of your league mates just yet.

Settings

Customize and update the league settings, scoring settings, and roster settings by tapping on the settings icon.

You can learn more about the different scoring options here.

View Your Draftboard

Press on the "Preview Your Draft Lobby" link.

Welcome to your draftboard!

This is where how you're going to enter the keepers that you've already selected.

Make sure you do not actually begin the draft yet.

Across the top of the draftboard, you can press on the dashes and enter team names for now. These will help you keep track of which column belongs to each team, and we'll invite your actual league mates later.

Now, you can start assigning keepers to each team. Click on an individual tile and then choose the Set Player option.

You can assign these keepers wherever you want on the board. Essentially, you're setting the keeper cost for them (or no cost).

Once you do start the draft, it will skip over any picks already filled in.

You can put all of the keepers at the very bottom, too, so that when you do begin the draft, it'll be like normal.

Invite Your Friends

Now that you have all of the keepers entered, you'll want to get all of your league mates into the league.

You can use the invite link on your league's homepage, or you can use the mobile app to invite them.

Your league's custom invite URL can be accessed via your league homepage and also in the league settings.

You can share this link with your friends through whichever means most convenient (i.e., email, text, social media), and the recipient of the link will automatically get dropped into the league!

If you need any help or want more specifics, you can read more on how to invite friends into your league.

Assign Users to Teams

At this point, you have all of your rosters ready to go, and all of your leaguemates in the league. Now, you just have to attach them to the proper roster.

Go to your league settings and click on Member Settings.

You'll see each of the teams listed with an option to add on the right of each. Click on that and assign the appropriate user to each team.

Once all of the teams are matched with their respective owners, your league is officially set up and you can set your draft order and begin drafting.

Option 2 - We have NOT decided on our keepers

If your league hasn't decided on their keepers or may change their minds, we have an official keeper system. Since you are moving your league over you need to follow these steps:

Now, you can start assigning players to each team. Click on an individual tile and then choose the Set Player option.

Once you're done, your full draftboard will look something like this:

You can now begin the draft and then end it.

Invite Your Friends

Once all of the teams are matched with their respective owners, your league is officially set up. There's just one last step.

Pre-Draft Mode

Since you already ended your draft to get players on teams, you'll want to go to your league settings on the web app (from a desktop or laptop) and select "Reset to Pre-Draft Mode".

Now everyone has their full keepers from last year to choose from, and you will even have the option to choose which rounds they lose on the draftboard once they choose their keepers.
