WHAT IS DRAFT?

DRAFT is the only place to compete in live daily fantasy drafts for NFL, NBA, MLB, and PGA. They take the best part of fantasy sports – the actual draft – and offer it every day. Each league lasts just one day for the daily sports like basketball and baseball, and one week for the weekly sports like football. That means you don’t have to wait around for the entire season to collect your winnings or draft again – you can cash out after a big win and draft a new team whenever you want.

The drafts are simple, fast, and exciting – most drafts take less than 10 minutes to finish. It’s a snake-draft format, so you’re on the clock and make your pick in 30 seconds or less before it’s the next drafter’s turn.

H2H DRAFTS

Head to Head drafts are snake drafts. This means that the pick order is reversed each round. If you have the 1st pick in round 1, you will have the last pick in round 2.

Public H2H drafts have a 30 second pick clock. Private H2H drafts can also choose an untimed option. Untimed drafts are placed “on the clock” within an hour of the start of games.

If joining a head to head draft from the lobby, you cannot be matched with the same player twice for the same dollar amount within the same slate of games. This may result in seeing 1/2 entrants on a tile but then failing to match that user sitting in a draft.

Payouts are winner take all.

MULTIPLAYER DRAFTS

Multiplayer drafts are snake drafts. This means that the pick order is reversed each round. If you have the 1st pick in round 1, you will have the last pick in round 2.

Drafts with 2 to 5 participants are winner take all, but drafts with more than 6 participants have payouts that vary. See the draft summary page for exact payouts.

Each person in the draft will have 30 seconds per pick to select their player.

DREAM TEAM

In Dream Team, you select any 5 players that you think will score the most points that night. There are no salary caps or monetary restrictions on player selections. Players are not removed from the player pool if another user selects them. Players are restricted positionally based on the requirements set forth in that sport.

You’ll compete against other opponents and their dream teams to score the most points. Payouts depend on entry fee and contest size.

Your lineup is not entered until you press submit.

You may edit your dream team lineup up until the first set of games begin.

You may not swap injured players after the first set of games begin.

No player can enter more than one lineup into any given dream team draft.

NBA Dream Team player pools do not always include all players. Top performers are removed to increase parity and skill and to reduce the likelihood of ties.

EXPERT DRAFTS

Expert drafts are designated on the lobby by a tag that reads “Expert.”

Expert drafts are designed to be more skillful by removing the top projected players at each position. The number of removed players is outlined on the screen where you join the draft.
