What is GMT?

GMT stands for Greenwich Mean Time. It is a way of expressing time so that people can understand what time it is no matter what time zone they live in. Because we have owners participating in our leagues from all over the United States, as well as other countries, we need to use GMT for our system. On your owner master, there is a place for you enter a GMT offset and the system will convert the GMT times used in the system to your local time. (For example, Central Daylight Savings time requires an offset of -5 from GMT.)

How do I contact other owners in my league?

You can find owner email addresses at the “League Information” page along with the names, team names, owner Ids, State, e-mail address, AOL Messenger ID, ICQ number and MSN Messenger ID for all of the owners in your league.
This display also shows summary information about each owner (number of players on his/her roster, total salary, total contracts used, etc.) This is a useful tool for determining whether another owner is in salary cap trouble, etc. and might consider a trade with you to reduce his salary cap.

How do I check the scores to see how I did?

From the Owner’s Page, go to the “Seasonal” menu item and select “Weekly Points”. At the “Weekly Points Review” display, enter your league id, owner id, week (1-16), and year and click on the “Submit” button. This will display a game points detail page with total points and points by category (passing, rushing, receiving, etc.). If you don’t remember who you are playing that week, return to the owners page and select “Scores and Standings” scroll down to view the “Weekly Schedule” which will show you which owner id you are playing each week of the season. Below “Weekly Team Scores and Team Totals” is a section labeled “Yearly Standings and Scores” which shows the average points, wins, losses, ties, etc. for each team in your league.

I'm going on vacation. How do I set Starters?

Under the “Seasonal” menu item, select “Set Starters” and enter the week you will be gone. Then enter starters as usual. If you will be gone for more than a week, enter the starters for each week to set and update each week. Starters are stored by week so each week will have the unique starters you select. While you are gone your starters will be used as you entered them.

I'm going on vacation. How do I draft?

Under the “Draft” menu item, enter your picks in the Veteran and/or Rookie draft lists. Under your “Owner Master” you can turn on your vacation flag. Then when the draft begins you will be auto-picked by the system based on your lists. If you do not enter a list you will be drafted based on Position/average points or NFL rookie draft slot.

Who is the league commissioner?

The league creator is set as the commissioner, the second owner to join a league is Vice-commissioner. The only functions that these 2 users perform is setting the draft date & time and the pick durations for online users and non-online users and updating the league name.  Commissioner and Vice-Commissioner can be changed at any time.  You can also reach out to customer service, support@efsports.com, if you have any issues.
