DraftKings announced a new football format…Best Ball!
For fans not familiar with best ball, it is a season-long, snake draft format with no roster management during the season. No roster management in best ball means you do not have to deal with adds, drops, the waiver-wire, or trades as you would in a standard season-long fantasy league. Your drafted team is your set roster for the length of the contest.
There are currently two types of best ball formats. The first format, are Sit and Go’s which can be played weekly from Week 1 through Week 16 with anywhere from 3 to 12 teams. The second format is Tournaments, which are 12-team contests played throughout the football season. The tournament schedule is typical to regular season-long schedules which includes four rounds as follows:
Round 1: Weeks 1 – 13
Round 2: Week 14
Round 3: Week 15
Round 4: Week 16
There are also two types of snake draft options. Slow Drafts allows up to 8 hours between each draft pick whereas Fast Drafts has a 30 second per pick timer.
