DraftStreet Live Snake Draft Daily Fantasy Basketball Game Review

I recently reviewed DraftStreet’s Daily Salary Cap Game and now I’m going to post a review of one of my other favorite games, the DraftStreet Live Snake Draft Game.

DraftStreet is probably the second biggest site in the daily fantasy industry and the daily basketball traffic has really been growing this season.  If you want to give it a look, you can SIGN UP HERE FOR FREE.  To register, all you have to do is supply your name and a valid email address, then pick a screen name and password and you are ready to go.  They offer free games that you can play just to get a feel for the site and the live draft software, without having to deposit real money.  If you want to play games for real money, you can fund your account with any major credit card or Paypal.

Just about every season long fantasy league uses the snake draft format and the DraftStreet setup is exactly like a season long league draft, except that the draft only covers the games for ONE night of NBA Action.  Once that day’s action is complete,  you can snake draft a team for tomorrow’s NBA Action.  No worry about injuries killing your season, just draft a new team tomorrow.


Draft Rules

When you enter a DraftStreet Live Snake Draft Game, the league will set to draft 5 minutes after the league is full.  The draft order is determined by random drawing and each team has 45 seconds to make their pick.  The draft consists of drafting 2 Guards, 2 Forwards, 1 Center and 3 FLEX players.  You will also have to draft 2 Bench players that you can substitute into your roster at any time up until tipoff.  This is a great safety net just in case one of your starting players comes up with a pre-game injury.  The game has a queue feature that lets you pre-rank your players and you can also autodraft if for some reason you can’t stay for the entire draft.


Game Scoring

The game scoring in the DraftStreet Live Snake Draft Game is the same as all their other fantasy basketball games:

Point scored = 1 point
Assist = 1.5 points
Rebound = 1.25 points
Steal = 2 points
Block = 2 points
Turnover = -1 point
Missed Field Goal = -.5 points
Missed Free Throw = -.5 points
