Snake Draft

Entering and Leaving a Snake Draft

All Snake Draft contests are single entry. 

You can cancel your Snake Draft contest entry until the contest fills (e.g. in a 6-person Snake Draft, you can cancel your entry until the 6th person joins).

Snake Draft contests start when filled (e.g. in a 6-person Snake Draft, the contest begins when the 6th person joins). After the last person joins, there is a 60-second buffer period before the first person is up to draft.

If your Snake Draft contest does not fill in time to start and finish before slate lock, your entry fee is refunded.

Lock Times

Snake Drafts must start and finish before the slate locks.

The exact time that a Snake Draft must start by depends on the size of the contest and the slate lock time.

The calculation is: Slate lock time - [(30 seconds) x (number of picks) + 60 seconds] = Latest possible Snake Draft start time

E.g. a 3-person Snake Draft for a 7 pm slate must begin by 6:50 pm (7 pm - [(30 seconds) x (18 picks) + 60 seconds] = 6:50 pm).

The Basics of Drafting

In a Snake Draft, you draft your lineup in real time against your opponents.

The pick order is random and reverses each round (e.g. if you have the first pick in round one, you will have the last pick in round two).

You have 30 seconds to make each pick. If you do not make a pick in 30 seconds, a pick will be made for you.

Once a player has been drafted, no one else may draft that player.

You cannot edit your lineup after the Snake Draft ends.

For Multi Game Slates: 

  • You and your opponents draft six players each for slates with two or more games.
  • You must draft the following positions for slates with two or more games:

Image

  • You must draft players from at least two teams
  • You may not pick more than four players from the same team.

For Single Game Slates

  • You and your opponents draft three players each for single-game slates.
  • You must draft the following positions for single-game slates:

Image

  • You must draft players from both teams.

The Queue and Auto-Draft

When it is not your turn to pick, you can add players that you want to draft to your queue.

If you turn on Auto-Draft, you will not receive push notifications, and picks will be automatically made for you based on:

  1. The top-ranked player in your queue, or
  2. The highest-projected available player in the player list, if your queue is empty

If you do not make a pick in your allotted time, a pick will be made for you, based on the same criteria.

Protections Against Picking Injured Players

Players with the following injury statuses will never be auto-picked for you:

NFL: Injured Reserve / Not Active / Out

NBA: Injured Reserve / Not Active / Out

MLB: Injured List / Not Active / Out

NHL: Injured Reserve / Not Active / Out

PGA: Not Active / Out

You can manually draft players with these injury statuses after confirming your choice.

Scoring

Players in your Snake Draft lineups accrue fantasy points through the same scoring rules as standard Salary Cap contests.

Eligibility

Snake Draft contests are not available in Ohio or Missouri.
