What does this have to do with Sleeper? Does it give some option to add nicknames for players or something? Or just it’s the platform this roster is on? Confused.
Yeah, Sleeper gives the option to nickname players and they will show up in Matchups under their real names!

You should really delete it.
You're right, that was poor taste. Edited

Just signed up for Sleeper and testing it out. First impression is VERY GOOD. Easy to set up a league. Plenty of customization options. Awesome UI. If their draft room/board is anything like the rest of the site, this will be a game changer for dynasty platforms.

Questions: Can u run a vet draft followed by a rookie draft? Is there a way to suspend the draft timer during the night?

We just had our draft last week on sleeper and we all thought it was a significant upgrade over MFL.

You can have a veteran draft followed by a rookie draft. Once you've had your veteran draft, the commissioner can go in and add a "supplemental draft" with rookies only.

Not sure about the draft timer question. If you don't get an answer on here, send their help desk an email. I've asked them several questions and they've gotten back to me quickly every time: support@sleeper.app.

Yeah, I just set up a free Redraft league on Sleeper and will use it to acclimate myself and some of my leaguemates. It's even easier and more user-friendly than ESPN. And has most of the essential dynasty league features...

If anyone is interested to try out Sleeper via my new redraft league, let me know via a PM.

BTW, is there a way to share a league link without providing an invite link?

Here's a little a link to my Sleeper test league. It's 110% FREE, redraft, tiered PPR and Superflex. Minimum post count of 100 to ensure no trolls sneak in and mess with the draft or league. Please use ur DLF handle as team name.

I joined a Sleeper platform league this year. Its really good and the updates feature is spot on. I'm still in a couple ESPN and the changes they made are a hot mess. I am floored with the folks at ESPN how much they messed up the platform.

It's SO free that you might even be able to afford it.

:)
It certainly sounds like it's that free!

I would; but unfortunately - redraft just doesn't do it for me.
It's too bad early bird wasn't on Sleeper.

There's a good chance we will move over in 2020 if the App continues to impress. So far, it has been amazing.
