What makes classic FanDuel DFS different is that you get to pick an entirely new line up every week, without exceeding your weekly salary cap. But if that's not your thing, their new Snake Draft option might be for you.
FanDuel is adding the Snake Draft format to their offering, which is more like the typical season-long fantasy sports leagues you may be familiar with. In Snake Draft, the selection order switches in every round. If you pick first in Round 1, then you will hold the last draft pick in Round 2, then the first pick in Round 3, the last draft pick in Round 4, and so on. Basically, you draft 6 players in a 6-round draft with 30 seconds per pick. Once a player is selected, they are no longer available for other teams to pick.
If you're on the clock and you haven't picked by the time the timer expires, Snake Draft Auto Draft will kick in and select your line up for you(you can also choose to have the player picked automatically for you). If this happens, the following criteria help determine what plates you receive-
- The top active player in your queue.
- If there are no active players in your queue, the highest available player.
- If neither of those is available, it picks the player with the highest projected point total at a position that you haven't filled.
For most sports(except golf)Snake Draft teams must be made up of players from at least two different teams, and you can't choose more than four players from the same team. Once you pick your team, rosters are locked, and no trades or replacements are allowed. What's awesome is that you can participate every game day, and there's no salary cap!
