The link can be found from your league homepage. We also ask that you please lower or disable your anti-virus and/or firewall security settings. Once you complete your draft, you will be able to return the settings back to normal. If you do not have the latest java applet loaded you may still participate using our HTML Lite draft.

A: Because of the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, there are limitations in place involving the release of personal information from children under 13.

Q. According to your Rules and Restrictions, I am not eligible to win prizes playing ESPN Premium or Prize-Eligible Fantasy Games based on the state I live in. Why is this?
A. ESPN's Fantasy Games are subject to the laws of each of the fifty states. Any state excluded from prize eligibility in ESPN Fantasy Games is based on our review and interpretation of the applicable law in that state at that time. While these laws prevent us from permitting residents of excluded states from winning a prize in our Premium or Prize-Eligible Fantasy Games, they do not prevent such residents from paying an entry fee and playing for fun if they so choose. Currently, the following states are excluded from our Premium and Prize-Eligible Fantasy Games, which means participants residing in these states may pay an entry fee and play, but are ineligible to win a prize: New Jersey, Washington, Arizona, Maryland, Tennessee, Iowa, Louisiana, Vermont, Montana and North Dakota.
