Some online draft games include “Play the Draft” and “First-Pick.com.” While players have to create an account to play, these games don't require money. The games pit players against each other as they try to create the ultimate football team. There are no cash prizes for winning the games.
In “Play the Draft,” players start with a $12-million fantasy salary cap. The game automatically supplies the funds for the players' accounts during sign-up with randomly selected draft stocks. Players can keep the stocks that they like or sell all of them to get a fresh start. During gameplay, they have to buy and sell fantasy draft stocks and choose undervalued athletes that they think teams may select in the draft. This game features no limit to the number of trades that players can make.
Once players pick the athletes, they have to wait for the real draft to see if they were right. “Play the Draft” allows players to compete in not only public leagues but also private leagues for a more personalized experience.
The “First-Pick.com” draft game simulates upcoming drafts. This game covers more than just football. It also includes all major professional sports leagues. Players can become the general manager of the team of their choice, and they are in charge of field trades and a simulated draft.
