This is supported by the film appearing to not be too long after Superman's death, considering the public mourning and the nature of people's discussions about his passing. It occurs after Suicide Squad, as is clear from Superman's mourning (not yet returned) in the film, and the credits scene with Bruce Wayne picking up files on the metahumans he is looking for. Bruce mentions in the film that it is "winter" and in a scene of Justice League, when Barry Allen encounters his father in prison, it's visible a mobile phone with the current date "Fr. January 20", so it can be taken that the film is set approximately 14 months after Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, in January 2017.
