General Questions:

You keep referring the Franchise Setup page.   Where/what is it?

  1. Go to your user page .
  2. Scroll down until you see the league/draft you want to update.
  3. Select your team name in the Franchise column.
  4. On your Franchise page, scroll to the bottom.
  5. You will see a box with owner options.

You are now on your Franchise Setup page.   On this page you can add/delete a logo/icon, change your Franchise Name, Turn off Emails, Turn on computer control, or Change your password.

I do not want to receive an email for each draft pick, how do I shut it off?

Go to your Franchise Setup page for the league/draft, uncheck the box by "Send email for each draft pick" and the emails will stop.

My email address isn't confirmed, what do I do?

When you signed up for your user account, a special confirmation message is sent to the address you entered.   You simply click on the link in this message to confirm your email address.   If you cannot click on the link, just copy and paste the link into the address field in your browser.

If you did not receive the automated confirmation, are you a member of AOL?   About half of the people with AOL email people don't receive the confirmation message.   Something about SPAM filters.

If that's the case, the best solution is to create a free hotmail or yahoo account just to use for AntSports.

If you do have the confirmation message and are still having trouble confirming your email address, forward that entire message to us at and we will confirm your address by hand.

How do I find my user page?

In the left bar of any AntSports page click on the Find User Name link.   Enter the necessary information, and it will take you to your user page.   We recommend bookmarking or adding this page to your favorites as you may access it often.   This is the only page that may update your email address.

I can't find a certain NFL Players on my draft page.   Where are they?

Why should I pre-draft and how do I do it?

The SECRET to an enjoyable draft is to use the pre-draft feature for every pick.   The pre-draft feature allows you to build a list of players for your next turn, instead of waiting for your turn.   For example, say your pick is 5 turns from now.   If you pre-draft a few players now, when it's your turn, the computer will select a player for you from your pre-draft list.

Here's how I recommend using the pre-draft feature.   No matter how far away your next selection is, always pre-draft 3 or 4 players. You don't need a huge list, just a few players.   In the mid rounds and rounds that follow, you usually end up with your first or second choice.

If everyone uses the pre-draft feature, your draft will finish in about quickly.   It's up to you.

The pre-draft is done on your draft page.

  1. Select which round you want to pre-draft for at the top of the page.
  2. Select the players you want to pre-draft. You can select multiply players for the same position by holding down the ctrl key while clicking with your mouse.
  3. Once you have the players you want to pre-draft selected, click on "Build Pre-Draft Player List"
  4. Now click on the buttons to specify the priority order for the pre-draft selection.
  5. When you have everything like you want it, click on "Submit Pre-Draft Selections"
Your pre-draft selections for that round have now been submitted.

Pre-drafting can be done for multiple rounds, but is not recommended for the real draft.

League Questions:

When does the real draft start?

Most public drafts will start after the 2nd full week of preseaon is complete. I usually spread the draft start times out and across several day. Note, the drafts will take 4 to 10 days to complete with a break if needed for Labor Day. The draft start time for you league is posted on your league homepage.

What happens if my league isn't full?

Last year we filled up all of our leagues, including starting over 50 new leagues during the last week of August.   We will do our best to fill up the leagues before the drafts start on Aug 22rd, but if necessary, we will do one of several things:
  • Delay the draft start.
  • Disband a non-filled league of matching types and move franchises.
  • If the league is a 12 team league, I would consider reducing it to 10 teams.

Don't worry, we're working on filling the leagues everyday.   Everything will be OK.

I will be on vacation during the draft for my league, what should I do?

You can do several things:

  • Remember to pre-draft .   Pre-Drafting more than one round in a real draft is not recommended.
  • Go to a place at your vacation spot with public internet access, i.e. a library, internet cafe, college, etc. and periodically check in.
  • Have a VERY trusted friend help you out.
  • Call and check in with AntSports periodically to help you get your picks done.

You will also want to post a message in your league's message board to let them know that some of your picks may be a bit delayed.   This helps keep tempers down.

How can I get a private league on AntSports?

AntSports Private Leagues are exact copies of the public leagues except that the signups are controlled by a password.   AntSports is the commish.   Cost and prizes are the same as AntSport's normal public leagues.

If you and your friends want AntSports to be the commish, please read the General Rules (link on left bar) and send an email to with the following information:

Private League Info:
League Name:
Number of Teams:
Scoring (HP or P):
Trophy, $50, $100, or ...:
Keeper or Redraft:
H2HVP or plain H2H:
Waivers (BBid, WtoF, FCFS):
Starting lineup (TE or No TE, Flex or Normal):
Signup Password:

We will then set up a private league for you.

How do I put a logo in for my team?

You can add logos for your team/franchise via your Franchise Setup page.

How do I find out my draft position?

You can find out your draft position once you have paid for your team. Upon receipt of payment, a view draft position link will appear by your team on your user page. Click on this link, enter your password, click on go, and your draft position will appear.

Mock Draft Questions:

How do I turn off computer control?

If you turned computer control on yourself, you can shut it off via your Franchise Setup page.   If it came on because your selection timed-out in the draft, then it cannot be turned off.   However, if you go in and pre-draft, the computer will use your pre-draft selections for its picks.

How often do you update SMD status?

SMD status is usually updated within 15 minutes of after the completion of the ENTIRE mock draft.

I had SMD status and now it is gone.   What happened?

If your mock draft team was on the clock for more than 8 hours, your team goes under computer control and you lose your SMD status.   You will need to requalify under a normal mock draft.

I have SMD status and am currently in a mock draft.   I now have to go somewhere with no computer access.   What should I do?

You should pre-draft and put yourself on computer control via the Franchise Setup page.   If you enable computer control yourself, you can disable it later, and you do not lose your SMD status.   The computer control will also use your pre-draft selections for your picks.
