FantasyPros Releases Major Update to Award-Winning Fantasy Football Draft Tools
Updates to fantasy football Draft Wizard draft preparation and assistance tools significantly improves ease of use, access to expert advice, and performance
By: Marzen Media, LLC
A significant overhaul of the user interface makes it even easier for fantasy football enthusiasts to prepare for their draft, with realistic and fast mock draft simulations. This allows users to quickly mock draft against sophisticated opponents and test out varying draft strategies.
Draft Wizard also returns this season as the leading tool for expert assistance during a live fantasy football draft. With the ability to connect to most fantasy football league hosts, managers get player suggestions based on expert consensus rankings (ECR) and roster needs. Draft picks are tracked in real time to make drafting a winning team as stress-free as possible.
A new auction simulator also makes its debut this season, with advanced simulated draft strategies, live calculation of auction values, and easy to access expert notes and player alternatives. Managers in auction leagues can now quickly practice auction draft strategies just as easily as those in snake drafts.
Additionally, the overall performance of Draft Wizard's suite of tools has been improved, due to an extensive overhaul of the underlying technology. This ensures that users will receive quick and timely advice during their live drafts, even during peak drafting times.
These improvements build upon the expert advice that millions of people every season have come to expect from FantasyPros. With expert consensus rankings still a core focal point alongside a constantly evolving suite of tools and reports, fantasy football enthusiasts continue to win league championships with the aid of FantasyPros' advice every season.
Draft Wizard features:
• Easy draft preparation with mock draft simulations (both snake and auction drafts) against the FantasyPros AI. Make each pick or auto-draft to easily try multiple strategies.
• Live draft assistant connects to majority of league hosts and automatically tracks each draft pick.
• See who the best available players are based on league scoring system, roster needs, expert ranking, drafting position, and player value.
• Configure positions and scoring type (standard, PPR, and .5 PPR).
• Support for auction leagues, custom scoring, and keepers.
• Advanced cheat sheet tool with expert rankings, expert notes, and custom tagging.
• A sophisticated team analysis tool to provide insight into drafting strategies and results.
