Inside the Draft War Room


Value Based Rankings

Most draft boards will show you which players have the highest projected points at each position. Honestly, that’s never really been a great tool to help you draft. That’s why in 1999, Draft Sharks became the first site to use Value Based Rankings to help people draft smarter.

But this is 2024.

Our brand new Draft War Room (DWR) helps you find the biggest difference makers for your team in every round. The core of how we created the (DWR) breaks down like this:

Dynamic MVP

3D Value

3D Value takes into account 5 crucial data points:

  1. The pool of available players at each position and the expected dropoff in fantasy production by your next pick
  2. Your remaining team needs based on the roster spots you’ve already filled
  3. Average draft position (ADP) of remaining players
  4. A player’s ceiling upside (and likelihood of hitting that ceiling) for players drafted in middle to late rounds
  5. Analytically proven positional strategies

The end result for you is what we’ve coined the 3D Value score. It’s a unique player score determined by a proprietary algorithm we’ve created and tested. Doing these calculations manually would take you hours to determine the biggest difference maker for your team at each round of your draft. Our Draft War Room does it in less than a second, every time you’re on the clock.


Live League Sync

The Draft War Room will live sync with your commissioning service to load:

  1. Your league’s scoring
  2. Your draft order and other team names
  3. Every team’s pick, live throughout your draft
  4. Your league’s roster through the regular season for Free Agent & Trade advice

This means you’ll be able to fully leverage our Draft War Room tools in real time during your draft. It also means that once the regular season starts, you’ll have free agent recommendations and trade advice — all dialed into each of your leagues.

3D Projections

3D Projections

We give you a quick view of 3 crucial data points.

  1. OUR award-winning baseline projections.
  2. A consensus projection from 38 other sites.
  3. “Ceiling” and “Floor” projections for each player.

This is a huge benefit to you in the heat of the draft (especially in the mid-to-late rounds when we highlight the probability of a player hitting their “ceiling” projection). With one quick glance, you can absorb multiple inputs of how a player will perform this year. And then pick the player with the greatest potential for your team.
