Free to Play, Unlimited Teams
No Draft, No Salary Cap, Hand Pick Your Team
Public and Private Leagues
Tips are very much appreciated, if you're into that sorta thing.
Stack your lineup with any number of players from any number of playoff teams. Think the Chiefs are a shoe-in for a repeat? Want an all Minnesota team? This is the option for you. But remember, putting all your eggs in a basket is high risk, high reward!
Pick one player from each of the 14 playoff teams. This method makes it so you always have a shot at the title since everyone in your league will always have the same number of active players. So think about who comes up big in the playoffs, and ride him to a league title!
Hand pick your roster, if you want him on your team, you can have him on your team. No draft, no salary cap.
Set up private leagues to play with your friends, or public leagues.
As with all our games, The Second Season is FREE to play!
