How do I use a TBD entry?
A TBD entry secures your signup but does not put you into a draft. To do that, go to your My Teams page and click the gear next to the team name. That takes you to the page where you select the draft you want to enter.
What is KDS and how is that used in the NFC?
The KDS process allows owners to rank their order of preference for Draft Day, ranking their preferences from most desired to least desired BEFORE the leagues are randomly selected. Some owners would rather draft at the top, if they are selected early in their league; others like to go to the middle, and others like to move down to the lower end. KDS allows that if you're fortunate enough. A sample KDS from an owner could look like this: 1, 2, 3, 14, 13, 8, 6, 7, 4, 5, 9, 10, 11, 12. If an owner wants the 14th pick if he is selected fourth overall in his league, he would choose 14 as his fourth option and he would then be moved to 14th in that league on Draft Day if he was picked fourth out of the hat and the top three preferences were gone.

How Is It Done?: Once each owner has officially signed up for the contest, they can find this feature on their team page. You'll see the Draft Preferences ranked 1 through X number of teams in your league and the option to Edit Preferences next to them. If you decide not to rank your preferences, your preferred order will remain 1 through X number of teams in your league. Owners can change their Draft Preferences right up until the announced deadline is set for that particular league.

Why Is This Done?: Even though all leagues are randomly selected, KDS does allow owners to have a little say in their draft spots. KDS allows that by telling NFC officials where you'd prefer to draft if selected early in the random draw. No longer are you just slotted into that spot; you now can tell us a more preferred spot by setting your KDS preferences. In the end, most owners will get a more preferred draft spot than the random slot would have given them.
What is 3RR in the NFFC and NFBKC?
3RR Stands for 3rd Round Reversal, which allows the bottom of the draft order to begin Round 3 after also starting Round 2. It's one way to balance the talent in a 14-team league, but it also is being used in all 12-team leagues. For those leagues using 3RR, the draft order is as follows:

Round 1: 1-14
Round 2: 14-1
Round 3: 14-1
Round 4: 1-14
Round 5: 14-1
Round 6: 1-14
Round 7: 14-1
Round 8: 1-14
Round 9: 14-1
Round 10: 1-14
Round 11: 14-1
Round 12: 1-14
Round 13: 14-1
Round 14: 1-14
Round 15: 14-1
Round 16: 1-14
Round 17: 14-1
Round 18: 1-14
Round 19: 14-1
Round 20: 1-14

Round 1: 1-12
Round 2: 12-1

3RR is being used to balance out all draft spots by giving the later picks the start of the draft in rounds 2 and 3. The process balances out the talent among teams in both formats.
