PLAY THE DRAFT® is the premier fantasy game experience during the football draft season. It is easy to play and makes watching the draft interactive and fun - what fantasy football game are you playing this off-season?
Yes. Contests hosted by the game Administrator are free to play, and private leagues can be created for play with up to 15 participants at no charge during the 2014 Draft Season.
The Trading Floor buy/sell feature will be disabled just before the start of the Draft on May 8...around 8:00 pm EST. Trading functionality will resume on Friday morning (May 9) and close just before the start of the Second Round.
Absolutely. Keep your league together to compete with your friends in the PLAY THE DRAFT® game experience. Through this unique fantasy game experience, you’ll also be better informed about the 2014 rookie class to assist with your fantasy draft during the regular season.
No. If you are an avid fan and fantasy guru, consider creating multiple funds to experiment with different game strategies. You might be motivated to join more than one public contest and invited to play in multiple private leagues. More funds = more fun during draft season. The “Dashboard” page will display all of the funds you are currently managing along with their current values and league rankings.
PLAY THE DRAFT® provides a unique and memorable interactive game experience for football fans and is intentionally designed to align with strategic partners interested in non-gambling game experiences. It is NOT online gambling. There are no cash prizes offered to contest winners, and there is no way to have a real financial gain or loss by trading fantasy athlete stocks through PLAY THE DRAFT®. All transactions are fantasy transactions. Some contests hosted by the Administrator offer non-cash prizing scenarios with a focus on experiential prizing, so stay tuned for more announcements as new contests start. In the free private leagues, the league manager has the option to display what the league is playing for (e.g. Bragging Rights).
No. This trading feature is frequently requested by avid fans of PLAY THE DRAFT®, however, at this time, the game experience focuses players on identifying undervalued athlete draft stocks with no game reward when an athlete falls in draft order, as this strategy is aligned with our partner preferences. This feature, and other exciting trading options, are being considered by the FRX team, so stay tuned for updates on new ways to PLAY THE DRAFT®.
The fantasy draft stocks of athletes competing for selection in the draft are assigned a value based on a proprietary pricing engine that calculates the consensus predictions of actual draft order, represented by the “FRX Index” (e.g. a 3.4 FRX Index means an athlete is trending towards the third overall selection) and the “Price” represents the estimated rookie salary cap figure assigned to that particular selection. Pricing is dynamic and changes overnight as new information on athletes and team needs becomes available, so stay informed by reviewing articles and analysis from content partners. After the 3rd round of the NFL Draft, undrafted athlete stocks are valued at $425,000.
