Let me tell you something – if you like your live fantasy football drafts (and i do), then you will love FanDraft. FanDraft is a digital fantasy football draft board kit that allows you to conduct your draft on a tv/computer/projection screen. I gave it a try – I’m always skeptical – but this software really delivers. The graphics and overall presentation were fantastic and the set up was easy as pie. I hate to spend over 5 minutes setting up anything so I was pleased when all I had to do was shove this in the computer and click a few buttons before I was drafting. (read full article)

For a while now, I’ve wanted to have an electronic draft board for my leagues fantasy football draft. I wanted to get some great fantasy draft board software to help me run my draft like a true NFL style draft.
I did some… ok, quite a bit or research on the web and found what appeared to be, for all intents and purposes, the best draft software on the web. I found it from the folks over at Fandraft.com. I will say this now in full disclosure… this is NOT a paid advertisement, I received NO compensation for this post (despite all my best efforts), and paid the full retail price ($29.95) to order the draft board software. What follows here is a honest assessment of the software and its impact on the draft.

After downloading the software and putting in all my information, I gave it a couple of run-through’s to get comfortable with it. This didn’t seem too hard. A few hours before the draft, I hooked my laptop up to a digital projector and put it up on a screen. The projector and screen (as well as venue for the draft) came at the courtesy of my brother-in-law and draftmaster. Now, I have a 50′ Plasma TV which would have worked just as well, but I choose the projector based on ease of set up and portability. (click here to read the full article)

With big screen TVs appearing in just about every home, bar, and restaurant, it was only a matter of time before a company would put out a draft board product that fully takes advantage of them.

Nothing has changed the world of fantasy sports like the explosion of computer and Internet technology, and I thank the geeks of the world who have made this possible, for otherwise the number of people wanting to read this column would be diminished from its already tiny number. It may be theorized that technology’s ability to change the fantasy landscape had reached its peak, but the latest edition of FanDraft software is challenging that.(click here to read the full article)
