Draft takes some of the best of season-long fantasy sports and applies it to the world of DFS.
Things start out in a familiar way for a DFS user: There is a lobby with a variety of contests that users can enter, with entry fees ranging from free to hundreds of dollars.
But there are no huge contests with thousands of users or tens of thousands of dollars on the line like you might find elsewhere. Contests usually involve two to ten users:
Why is that? Instead of the popular salary-cap model used in much of the DFS world, Draft has users take part in a short “snake” draft based on that day’s contests.
There is no salary cap restriction; users actually pick players for their fantasy team during a live draft conducted on the site’s software. Each user takes turns choosing players from an available pool:
Once the draft is completed, users can follow along on the Draft software to see how their players fare. The users with the best team will win money after the contest, if they paid a real-money entry fee.
Draft’s games involve a variety of sports.
Draft is designed as a mobile-first product, with apps available for both Android and iOS. However, it also features a browser-based platform. All of them are simple and intuitive to use and will feel familiar to anyone who has ever conducted a season-long fantasy draft with friends.
The mobile product, in particular, is extremely user-friendly. Seeing as Draft has users take part in live drafts, the app will alert you when the contest’s draft begins. You will also get an alert every time it is your turn to draft. You can also queue up players to draft while you are waiting, which will be a familiar tool for season-long fantasy players.
It’s likely you’ll see changes in the months and years ahead, as Draft was just acquired by Paddy Power Betfair.
Signing up for PlayDraft.com or via the app is an easy process. All you need is a username, an email address or phone number, and your birthday and away you go. Putting money in your account requires a bit more effort.
To start playing for real money, you will need a PayPal account. Credit and debit cards are not accepted.
