If you've joined a league on Sleeper, you may notice that each team comes with a default Sleeper mascot.

Mascots are exclusive to our fantasy football game and in the mobile app only. You are not able to utilize them in fantasy basketball nor League of Legends at this time.

What is the purpose of mascots?

Since we provide a completely free app without any advertisements, we needed a way to monetize. You can use cookies (our in-app form of currency) to purchase any of our 70+ mascots. Learn more about cookies here. 

The mascots will cheer your team on in your matchup page. 

You can change your mascot at any time by tapping on them on the matchup screen. It will bring up a window of your owned mascots.

Mascots will also report play-by-play information, so when Davante Adams makes a 73-yard TD catch, it'll be the first thing you see when you view your matchup screen, along with how many points you got for it.

What other mascots are available?

What if I don't like the mascots? Can we turn them off or minimize them?

Of course! We understand that the mascots aren't for everyone. We know that some users just prefer the fantasy aspect of the platform, so we give you that option for each individual league.

In the mobile app, if you go to your league settings, -> Team Settings, you'll see an option to Show Mascots:

By disabling the Show Mascots option, they will no longer appear in your Team and Matchup pages of that specific league.
