Unfortunately, not at this time. Once a league has been created its settings cannot be changed. If you want to create a league for a different number of teams instead, the best thing to do is delete the old league and create a new one with the number of teams you want.

For automatic drafts, the contestants will not be distributed until everyone joins the league.

For manual drafts, the draft clock does not begin to run until all league members have joined the league. Likewise, the commissioner will not be able to activate the draft manually until the league is full.

For commissioner drafts, the offline draft can take place anytime, anywhere, and in any manner your league chooses. However, the draft results cannot be entered on the site until every league member has joined the league.

After the league is full (i.e., every league member has joined the league), the contestants will automatically be distributed according to each league member's rankings two days later at 1:00 AM.

The commissioner can activate the draft sooner than this time frame, if the league members are satisfied with their rankings earlier. (But, at this time the commissioner cannot extend a manual draft past two days)

Nope! The commissioner can activate the draft sooner than two days, if the league members are satisfied with their rankings go for it!

Once all league members have joined the league, the commissioner can click on the "Activate Draft" button under the Actions tab in the upper right hand corner of the designated league box on the My Leagues page.
Once all league members have joined the league, the commissioner can click on the "Draft Contestants and Start League" button under the Actions tab in the upper right hand corner of the designated league box on the My Leagues page. Then drop and drag the contestants to their respective teams. Once you review the team rosters and are satisfied that they are correct, click "Start League." Remember(!) these results cannot be changed once they are finalized, so double check rosters before proceeding.
While teams will have uneven numbers of contestants as the season progresses, Fantasy4Reality is designed to put every team on an even playing field in week 1. Therefore, the league sizes are set up to provide each team with the same number of contestants. If the size of the league is not evenly divisible by the number of contestants competing on the show, than some contestants will not be drafted and these contestants will not earn points for any team. (Check to make sure each team has the same number of contestants)
Nope! Much like season-long fantasy sports leagues, you do not re-rank or re-draft contestants each week at Fantasy 4 Reality. Your team is your team for the season, so draft wisely :)
Its never too late! You can start a league at any time during the season. All points earned by contestants for prior episodes will be awarded retroactively. In fact, we have many leagues who like to wait until after the first episode or two to draft their teams so that they can scout the contestants before making a season-long commitment to them. Additionally, for bigger shows we set it up so leagues can be done after the day 1 "purge" with who is left. This means you can draft/rank only for those that remain after the first show.
Yes. Many teams elect to compete this way. If this appeals to you, shoot us an email telling us what week you wish to draft and how many teams will be in your league and we can provide you with the proper league setting.
