With Best Ball you only focus on the best part of season long fantasy football, the draft. Draft an 18 player team and you’re done. Each week, your top scoring players automatically start and will count toward your season total. The team with the most points at the end of the season wins.
No setting your lineup.
Just draft! It’s the easiest way to play season long fantasy football. Scoring is .5 PPR just like our weekly NFL drafts.
Players who move teams will accrue points on their new team, but players that retire will receive 0’s. Draft carefully!

Slow Best Ball drafts will give you more time to pick between the hours of 2AM and 5AM EST. This is designed to protect you against auto-picks during nighttime hours.
Example 1: If you go on the clock at 10PM EST, your auto-pick previously would have been at 6AM EST. Now, your pick will be 11 hours (Add 3 hours between 2AM and 5AM) and you will be auto-picked at 9AM EST.
Example 2: If you go on the clock at 3AM EST, your auto-pick previously would have been 11AM EST. Now, your pick will be 10 hours (Add two hours for the time between 3AM and 5AM) and will be auto-picked at 1PM EST.
As we approach the start of the season, Slow Best Ball drafts will speed up according to this schedule:
August 24th: Pick clock changes to 4 hours and pause extends from 2AM to 8AM EST.
August 31st: Pick clock changes to 1 hour. Pause extends to 12AM to 10AM EST
September 5th at 7PM - Pick clock changes to 2 minutes. Pause is removed.
Players’ scores count for the NFL week that the game is played. If a week 7 game is postponed until week 9, players’ points will count toward your week 9 score.
