How Public league live drafts fill

All free Yahoo Sports Public fantasy leagues will be filled to 12 teams (10 for football), prior to the league's draft time.

Will my Public league fill in time?

If your draft is approaching and your public league isn't full, Yahoo Sports will fill your league from a pool of available autopick teams set to Ready to Draft status.

In Public free leagues, you can invite a friend, family member or acquaintance to fill a vacancy but joining a Public Prize league with someone you know is considered a violation of the Yahoo Sports Fair Play and Sportsmanship rules.

If you want to play in a Prize league with people you know, we suggest creating or joining a Private Prize league and inviting your friends.
