Preparing Your Team
After joining a league with Fantasy Football you will be taken to your team information screen. There you will name your team and once you have access to your team page, you will be able to change any of the following features.

You can edit your team name by clicking on the Edit Team Name link on your team's subnav. Both parts of your team name (Location and Nickname) have a maximum character length of 15, and there is no unique team name restraints (so more than one team in a league could have the same name). On this page you can also edit your team's 4-character abbreviation. Since several pages in the game only use the abbreviation part of the name, we recommend you use one that can stand alone for these situations. For display purposes, it is also recommended that you keep your team name as short as possible, so that tables don't wrap.

NOTE: When you first join your league your team might have already been named for you by the league manager, but your team name can be changed at any time during the season.

Owners in LM leagues have the option of linking to a graphic directly from the Web (allowing for more creativity). To do so, enter the URL of the desired image in the Web address field and click on "set logo."

NOTE: When the graphic is applied to your custom league team, the linked image will be forced to a size of 151 pixels wide and 129 pixels tall. For the best possible results, adjust the size of the image to this dimension to improve the quality/clarity of the image. You cannot upload a logo to our system. You must reference a logo on the web.

ESPN also offers free Team Logo Sticker Packs, allowing you to easily create unique avatars for your fantasy football team. The new free Fantasy Football logo templates include pre-designed sports and entertainment driven logo graphics to enhance your team identity.

If your league uses either the Live Online or the Autopick draft method, you have the option to pre-rank the players. The Pre-Rank Players page can be accessed from either your main team page or from the top-left of the League Office page. On the page, rank the players in the order of your preference. The current rankings are displayed under the Saved column. To change these values, enter your new ranking in the New column. Your changes will not be saved to the server until the Save Rankings button is clicked on the page. For Autopick draft leagues, the order of players determine the order in which players are drafted to your team (the system selects the highest ranked player who is still available). For Live Online draft leagues, the rankings are only used if you do not pick a player in the allotted time limit (and you have no players on the pending pick queue).

NOTE: Once the draft lists are released, the system does not make any additions to the list of players, nor does it change any positions for players.
