In the midst of the doom and gloom of another uneventful international break, there really couldn’t be a better time to play Draft; Dream Team’s swanky new game for the 2019/20 season.
Unlike the Season game, you can start playing Draft at any time during the campaign with everyone in your mini-league beginning on the same page.
And guess what? We’re giving away £500 Amazon vouchers to one lucky new Draft player, just in time for all that Christmas shopping.
Basically, you need gather a bunch of mates together (can be 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, however many you want as long as it’s an EVEN number) and before your league starts you’ll take place in a LIVE DRAFT to decide who owns which players. Anyone who follows NFL will know exactly what goes on here.
Your league chairman will organise a date and time for the live draft to take place, so make sure everyone is available.
The first thing to understand is if you own a player, nobody else in your league can have them. So if you pick Sadio Mane, your mate Paul can’t have him.
The picking order works in a ‘reverse snake’ system, so if you go first, Paul goes second etc. Whoever is last in the first round of picks then goes first in the second round, and so on and so forth.
Everyone in your league will pick a squad of 15 players, so you might need to think outside the box when it comes to your last few picks.
If you’re not happy with your team, you can sign free agents (players that haven’t been picked) and make trades with other people in your league.
You can also set a captain each Game Week who scores you DOUBLE points.
This really is the best time to get involved – mainly because, unlike at the start of the season, you already know which players to go for and which to avoid.
Use all your learnings from the first few months of the season in the live draft; think Leicester, Chelsea and Sheffield United players, rather than wasting your time on the dross playing for Arsenal, Spurs and Man United at the moment.
As mentioned above, one lucky new Draft player will win those £500 worth of Amazon vouchers.
