How can I open the player pool before the draft?

Most leagues don't open free agency before the draft to prevent owners from selecting players oustide of the draft, however, we do offer this capability. To do this, go to League » Settings » Open Free Agency and choose either "Open free agency & draft later" or "Open free agency & no draft". You will still have access to the draft board and the current season's picks when you turn this feature on.

To close the player pool, simply go to League » Settings » Close Free Agency.

If you select the "Open free agency & no draft" option and then change your mind about drafting, go to League » Settings » Edit Rosters and in the bottom Keeper Options section, select These are the complete rosters but still draft this season and click Save. This will bring back the draft settings.
