PLAY THE DRAFT® is a fantasy game experience for draft season. It is easy to play and makes following football in the off-season more interactive and fun. Football is now year round - 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 by anyone for play with up to 15 participants at no charge during the 2016 Draft Season.
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 2016 rookie class to assist with your fantasy draft around the start of the regular season.
No. If you are an avid fan and fantasy guru, consider creating multiple funds to experiment with different game strategies. Join more than one public contest and invite friends 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.
No - this is not a Daily Fantasy game with cash payouts. PLAY THE DRAFT® provides a unique and memorable interactive game experience for sports fans and is intentionally designed to align with strategic partners interested in non-gambling game experiences. There is no entry fee to participate and no cash prizes offered to contest winners. In short, there is no way to have a real financial gain or loss by trading fantasy athlete stocks through the PLAY THE DRAFT® fantasy game. 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).
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 along with player trading activity. The estimated salary cap value of each draft stock is 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 but also updated once weekly to re-align with market predictions. After the 3rd round of the NFL Draft, undrafted athlete stocks are valued at $450,000.
Your total fund value will equal $12,000,000 in fantasy dollars when you begin play; however, the game experience automatically selects random draft stocks for your fantasy portfolio when you enter a contest. Your fantasy draft stock portfolio is under your control- sell off the randomly selected athletes from the drop-down feature to the right of your fund name or keep those you think will increase in value. Select stocks around your own game strategy!
