DRAFT.com is a great new take on Daily Fantasy Sports for those who are looking for something different. DRAFT lets you choose a team of players – just like real fantasy sports – but play with that team for one week only.
You can join a new draft any time and it only takes a few minutes to complete. No more breaking down ownership percentages and digging through salary cap values. Just choose the players you like best for that week and enjoy the game.

What Is Draft.com (Formerly PlayDraft)?
We all agree that the best part of your season long fantasy basketball leagues is the draft. Like their name suggests, DRAFT lets you draft daily fantasy players for this week’s games, in a fast online draft that only takes a couple of minutes to complete.
Unlike salary based daily fantasy leagues like DraftKings and Fanduel, you don’t need to worry about player ownership or chalk players because the players you draft are only on your team and nobody else’s.
How Do You Play Draft.com?
Playing at DRAFT is incredibly easy. All you need to do is download the app on your iOS or Android device and set up an account. If you don’t have an account you can click here to get a free $3 entry for your first game.
Once you have an account and have the app installed, just choose your sport and select a draft. The standard drafts run from 3 to 12 people, though DRAFT also features larger field head to head tournaments if you’re looking to win bigger prizes.
Contests start at either a designated time or once they are filled, so there are usually games running all throughout the day. Be sure to pay attention to your draft time so your picks aren’t auto-selected!
Contests range anywhere from just $1 all the way up to $1,000 if you’re a high roller, and prizes depend on the number of entries and the entry fee for the contest.
Best Ball Tournaments
New for NFL football in 2018, DRAFT is rolling out best ball tournaments including a tournament with a prize pool of $1,000,000 and a $100,000 first place prize. To play you simply draft a team in a 12 team draft and DRAFT will automatically score your best performing players so you don’t need to worry about setting a lineup each week. All teams play weeks 1-12 and during the fantasy playoffs (weeks 13-16) the top scoring teams advance until one team is crowned. If you’re looking for a larger prize pool on DRAFT this is the way to go.
DRAFT Roster Requirements
When you draft your weekly team, you need to choose:
- 1 Quarterback
- 2 Running Backs
- 2 Wide Receivers or Tight Ends
The lineups you need to draft are very simple, especially compared to season long. I really like that wide receivers and tight ends are grouped together. No more digging through bargain basement tight ends like you need to on DraftKings and Fanduel. Best of all, no more kickers!
How To Deposit and Withdraw Money
Depositing money in to your DRAFT account is incredibly easy. On the app just click “Deposit” in the upper right corner and you can deposit money using your PayPal account in just a few seconds.
Withdrawing money is just as easy. In the app click on Profile on the lower right and the little gear icon on the top left and select Withdraw. You can either have your money sent to you via PayPal to get your money within 48 hours or via a check, which will be sent within 14 days, if you don’t mind waiting.
My DRAFT.com Review
Overall I really enjoyed using the DRAFT app to play daily fantasy sports. As much as I do enjoy the challenge that DraftKings and Fanduel’s salary cap structure presents, DRAFT feels much more like the season long fantasy basketball that I fell in love with decades ago.
The app is extremely easy to use and since the contests are significantly smaller (especially in football) the odds of winning are greatly increased. Although the prize payouts are smaller, DRAFT is simply more fun to play for the casual daily fantasy players who aren’t looking to put in the daily grind that the other DFS sites require.
