It's Our Biggest Slate To Date

No matter if you have a couple hours to kill, or you want to embark on a "fast" slow draft with a two-hour timer or a longer slow draft with a six-hour timer, we've got you covered right now, players! With formats including Slim, Superflex, Terminator, VP, Classic and more, if you haven't jumped in the Best Ball party yet (especially the $5 Cinco de Best Ball), now's the time! Join in the fun now with Redraft Best Ball slow draft leagues at entry fees of $5, $35, $77 and $250 open for entry. And don't forget that the 2021 rookie class is included in the draft pool as well.

Slow drafts are filling and launching as soon as they are full (and we have live drafts scheduled each night, too), so you can be drafting in minutes. Drafts with two-hour and six-hour clocks are available. And be sure to download the FFPC iOS and Android apps for a more streamlined draft experience. The links are below:
