Update on Live Draft Sync options for 2018

We plan to have live draft sync available for all of the top sites.  This is the first time in 14 years we can say that!  It is a game changer for the Draft Analyzer and I appreciate everyone's patience as these options have changed so many times over the years.

Here is the current status (as of July 12th; updates will be made in the comments section or another post in late July):

Live:
  • Yahoo
  • *ESPN
  • *CBSSports (for CBS mock drafts, create a league in the DA using the CBS League template)
  • *NFL.com (for NFL.com mock drafts, create a league in the DA using the NFL.com League template)
  • MFL10s
  • RTSports
  • MyFantasyLeague
Coming soon (Status updates below as of July 25th):
  • Fantrax (Late July First week of August)
  • *FFPC High Stakes (Template available, Draft Sync planned for late July)
  • *NFFC High Stakes (Template available, Draft Sync planned for late July)

*Requires installing a very simple Chrome Extension that reads draft picks every two seconds (IE extension coming once all sites are finished for Chrome...likely August 1st).  It is a single click install/uninstall (click here to install free from chrome app store).  You will be prompted to add it when you start draft sync.  Click here to watch a quick video of how it works for ESPN.


FYI - The user experience with the Chrome Extension is better than without it because it updates every 2 seconds instead of every 10 seconds, so we plan to expand the extension for all sites as an option for you.


Thank you!

Love to hear that Jerry!!  The NFL.com draft sync will be identical.  The syncing in 2 seconds (max, usually less) makes the sync feel real-time, which is pretty nice when time is limited.  Always appreciate positive feedback!

Yes it is up and running and works the same way as the ESPN sync works.

Do you all anticipate syncing with the platform Fleaflicker.com in the future?

We will add this to the development list.  Not sure if this will be doable for this season but most likely for next.

Can the chrome extension be used on browsers on an iPad? Can I have two window tabs open to toggle between the draft room and the analyzer? Looking to use with ESPN and CBS.

Is that why I do not see the draft analyzer icon to the far right?
