How do I add my ESPN fantasy league to my account?

As of July 2020, due to a change on ESPN's platform, syncing an ESPN fantasy league via our website requires the use of the FantasyPros Chrome Extension. You can still sync your ESPN fantasy league via mobile, but this requires our Draft Wizard or My Playbook app.

As a reminder, adding a league to your account on one platform (i.e. web or mobile app) makes it available on all platforms.

In order to sync your ESPN league with your FantasyPros account, you must:

  1. Be using a laptop or desktop computer.

  2. Install the Google Chrome web browser if you do not already have it installed.

  4. Install and activate the FantasyPros Chrome Extension. After installation, you should see the FantasyPros browser extension active in Chrome to the right of the address bar. 

  5. Go to the league sync page, select ESPN, and click the Start League Sync button. At this point, you’ll be redirected to ESPN.com.

  6. On ESPN.com, our Chrome Extension will appear with a list of your leagues that have yet to be synced. Select the leagues you’d like to sync and click Sync Leagues. You’ll be redirected back to FantasyPros.com to complete your league sync(s).

  7. If you run into any trouble, go to chrome://extensions/?id=gfbepnlhpkbgbkcebjnfhgjckibfdfkc in your Chrome address bar and make sure "Allow in Incognito" and "Allow access to file URLs" are both enabled. If these settings are already enabled, you may need to toggle them off and back on.
