Plenty of us have been on more virtual calls than we'd care to remember over the past year, but now there's one we can all look forward to thanks to Yahoo Fantasy's latest groundbreaking feature, Draft Together!
What is Draft Together?
Draft Together allows fantasy players the chance to use video chat when drafting. With virtual communication becoming the new norm, using Draft Together is a way to bring the spirit of in-person drafting, even while socially distanced. Leaguemates can chat and interact (and trash each other's draft choices, of course!) while picking their players ahead of another great fantasy season!
The interactive experience also gives you more flexibility when draft parties — which are inarguably one of the most enjoyable parts of fantasy — become a staple again. Able to get half the league together at the same spot at the same time, but the rest of the players can't make it or are spread throughout the country? No problem — Draft Together lets you replicate the shared experience as the picks fly by, as long as your league uses the live draft feature.
How does Draft Together work?
Starting with fantasy baseball, private leagues of up to 12 teams will be able to use Draft Together on desktop only — mobile is coming soon!
Many more details on Draft Together to come, but get in on the fun now with your friends, family or coworkers because trash talk is always best served face-to-face. Sign up for a fantasy baseball league today.
