Frequently Asked Questions

Once you sign up through the invite link, you will receive a message from Sleeperbot on the Sleeper app confirming your admission.  If you do not get a message contact the Megalabowl Commissioner, please do not try to sign up again as that will cause a double entry.

All leagues are generated 1 hour before draft time. Draft orders will be randomized at the start of the draft. If you have signed up for a draft time and were not placed in a league, then you signed up with a different account.

At the end of Week 14, the top 3 teams in each league (record, with a tie breaker of Points For) will be added to the pool of playoff teams. You can find the pool of playoff teams as well as scores throughout the playoffs at Megalabowl.com

Playoffs are by points only. All teams will continue to have matchups on the Sleeper app but only the playoff teams points will matter. You do not have to win your matchup to move on!

You should draft both times as if you were going to use that team. Contact the Megalabowl Commissioner and they will resolve the double entry. Please do not leave the league for any reason without contacting the Commissioner.
