Now here’s the tool kit that puts it all into action for you.

Draft Tools

Draft War Room - Featuring LIVE Draft Sync

17 draft value indicators update in real time for you

Think of the Draft War Room as a “dynamic fantasy football cheat sheet.”

Or think of it as part of a system to help you win.

The Draft War Room LIVE syncs to all your =leagues, and monitors 17 crucial in-draft indicators – all while you’re drafting! 

As you draft, your live synced Draft War Room automatically updates as players are selected.

When it’s your turn to pick, our top player recommendations will be highlighted

Here are the 17 in-draft value indicators the Draft War Room tracks for you in real-time:

1. League Scoring 7. Bust risk 13. Flex options
2. Positional Value
8. Injury risk 14. Bench depth

How The Draft War Room Uses 17 Real-Time Value Indicators

You get the best fantasy football draft board. No matter the format

From dynasty to best ball to auction. We’ve got you covered.

No more agonizing and panicking over every pick.

Our rankings aren’t just rankings.

Here’s why.

They’re part of an entire system to help you win – no matter what format you play. We have:

  • Re-draft rankings
  • Dynasty rankings
  • Rookie rankings
  • Auction rankings
  • Best ball rankings

And these format-specific rankings are all based on our Draft War Room. Different formats require different player rankings and valuations.

Rankings have to be adaptive and dynamic. Changing based on your league format – and then based on your draft. 

That’s exactly how our Draft War Room calculates your player rankings. 

And BTW – our rankings are powered by fantasy football projections that have won multiple industry awards for accuracy.

We devote hundreds of hours to these projections from April through August

These projections combine with your specific league lineup and scoring settings to produce rankings tailored just for you.

Those are the rankings you’ll find in your Draft War Room, which can now power your dynasty startup and rookie drafts.

Listed on DraftSharks.com at the right times throughout the year, you’ll also find:

TIP

Our Draft War Room is a unique fantasy football draft board tool. The DWR actually tracks a total of 17 real-time indicators to determine player values throughout your draft. Think of it as a dynamic cheat sheet that live-syncs with your league’s draft in real-time. Check out how the Draft War Room works in this quick video.

Mock Draft Trainer

Mock draft in minutes vs. the most realistic software available

“Practice makes perfect” -every coach to ever exist 

Each league only gets one draft, so make sure you are as prepared as possible. That means it is time to mock draft!

Once you’ve synced your team – and before your league drafts – you can practice as much as you want with our Mock Draft Trainer.

That’s just what it sounds like. From your My Leagues page, you can simply click the Mock Draft button for any team you have set up.

That will launch a mock draft tailored to your format, with “computer drafters” rounding out the league.

No need to gather a group of drafters

There is no need to deal with a dead Yahoo or ESPN mock draft room after people sign up and then leave.

And don't worry about our computer drafters giving you the same look every time.

We’ve primed our algorithm to alter draft performance – so you can practice for every twist and turn. 

ADP Index

We give you Average Draft Position data for multiple league formats

We’ve built our Draft War Room to account for Average Draft Position. And we keep those ADP numbers updated throughout the draft season.

But we also have a separate ADP Index in case you want to look at the numbers on their own.

We collect ADP data on the most common league sizes – 8, 10, 12, and 14 teams – from multiple sources to deliver the best up-to-date numbers across formats and by position.

You can find data for PPR, non-PPR, and half-PPR formats; Superflex drafts, dynasty leagues, FFPC (high stakes) drafting – even dynasty rookie drafts.

You can also filter by league size and sort by position.

Injury Predictor

A critical injury or two can ruin even great fantasy football rosters. We’ll never promise that we can predict who will get hurt or when. 

But our exclusive Injury Guide features a robust NFL injury database.

And it algorithmically determines who is most – and least – likely to miss time in the coming season based on factors such as a player’s injury history, historical injuries at his position, and his expected workload.

That gives you the power to plan whether you want to draft insurance behind that iffy RB or avoid a Round 1 landmine altogether.

The exclusive Draft Sharks Injury Guide projects each player's likelihood of missing games. You'll get info most fantasy football drafters don't have, making it one of the best fantasy football tools available.

Regular Season Tools

Once your season begins, the My Leagues page serves as a hub for managing all of your teams

The best fantasy football tools appear as this set of tiles on the My Leagues page for every team a Draft Sharks Insider syncs.

Team Guide

Your Team Intel page displays your entire roster and uses our exclusive 3D Projection system to recommend starters for your specific format.

3D Projections combine:

  1. Draft Sharks player projections for the week
  2. Consensus projections from more than 35 other fantasy football sites
  3. Draft Sharks “ceiling” and “floor” estimates for that player that week. 

Those 3D projections power our automatic start/sit recommendations on the Team Intel page.

You’ll also easily tell who has a potential injury problem for the week.

Free Agent Finder

You’ll find a fresh Free Agent Focus on DraftSharks.com every week, with recommendations sent to your inbox even earlier (Sunday night) if you’re on our email list.

But those articles can’t possibly know your specific league. Fortunately, the Free Agent Finder does. 

That sync you used to create your Draft War Room sticks with you all season.

The Free Agent Finder uses that sync connection to see who’s available in your league, compare those players with your current roster, and give you custom recommendations.

But what if you’re trying to look ahead for a bye-week filler or a streaming defense? No prob. You can simply sort by next week’s projections and get a jump on your league mates.

Are you looking even longer term? Just sort by our Rest of Season projections instead. And we’ve even got modified versions of both options.

Trade Navigator

Sometimes you need more than the waiver wire can provide. You need to work a trade with another team in your league. And the Trade Navigator is designed to streamline your process and maximize your return.

There are two parts:

First, the Trade Partner Finder lets you select the position you’re targeting and what you’re looking to give up. Then, it scans your league in seconds to find the best fit for your plan.

The Draft Sharks Trade Navigator makes fantasy football trades -- and especially dynasty trades -- easier. These dropdowns let you search the position you're looking to acquire and find out who has what you're looking for. The ease and power of the Trade Navigator makes it one of the best fantasy football tools.

Once you’ve found the ideal trade partner, it’s time for the Trade Analyzer

Simply pull up the other team’s roster, either from a dropdown list or by searching for a specific player you want.

Select the players you want to include on each side, and the Trade Analyzer will tell you what you’d be gaining or losing in the deal – both by that week’s projections and our Rest of Season projections.
