Contest types

H2H Drafts: Head to Head contests at DRAFT are in the classic snake draft format. 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. Payouts are winner take all.

Multiplayer Drafts: Multiplayer drafts are also 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. Each person in the draft will have 30 seconds per pick to select their player. Drafts with 2 to 5 participants are winner take all, but drafts with more than 6 participants have payouts that vary.

NFL Best Ball: With DRAFT’s NFL Best Ball players only focus on the best part of season-long fantasy football, the draft. Players draft an 18 player team and they’re done. Each week, your top scoring players automatically start and will count toward your season total. The team with the most points at the end of the season wins. No setting your lineup. No waivers. No trades.

Dream Team: In DRAFT Dream Team, you select any 5 players that you think will score the most points that day/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.

Tournaments: In Tournaments DRAFT allows you to play multiple rounds of drafts for bigger prizes. Each round of drafts is between 2 and 12 people in size. Winners advance to the next round. Tournament drafts run at a scheduled time. Tournament entry closes 10 minutes before the start of the scheduled first round draft.

Brackets and seeds are created randomly when the tournament fills or 10 minutes before the draft. If the tournament is not guaranteed and doesn’t fill, it won’t run and all entrants will be refunded their entry fee.

Guaranteed Drafts: DRAFT contests with a ‘Guaranteed’ flag label will run even if they do not fill up. This means if there is a 100 person dream team contest with only 75 entries at the start of games, the contest will still run and the payouts will still be based upon entry fees of 100 players.

Expert Drafts: Expert drafts are designated in the DRAFT lobby by a tag that reads ‘Expert’. Expert drafts are designed by DRAFT to be more skillful by removing the top projected players at each position. The number of removed players is outlined on the screen when you join the draft.

Sports available

  • NFL: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 pass catchers
  • NBA: 2 guards, 2 forwards, 1 center

DRAFT daily fantasy app gameplay features

Player swap: At DRAFT, you can swap players after they have been drafted. In order for a player to be swap eligible, they must have had an active status at the time you drafted them which then changed to an inactive status. When you have a swap eligible player, you’ll be notified via push notification on your DRAFT app. Click swap on the completed or live screen next to that player and you will be able to select from all undrafted players. When swapping players, the positions must match and the swap must be completed before the start of the game in which the player is playing. All player swaps are final.

Postponed games: If a player’s game is postponed after their scheduled start time, they will become swappable. This is the only circumstance where a player becomes swappable after the game start time.
