FanDuel is introducing a new way to play daily fantasy football in the 2020 NFL season, with daily fantasy NFL snake drafts.

Combining all the fun of daily fantasy sports with the snake draft format that season-long fantasy players know and love, this is a great way to play contests and win prizes every week this NFL season.

Here's how to play FanDuel's daily fantasy football snake drafts.

How to Sign Up for FanDuel NFL Snake Drafts

Snake drafts will be available just like every other contest format, in the FanDuel lobby. You can use the "Game Styles" filter to check out what snake draft contests are available.

How Do FanDuel NFL Snake Drafts Work?

A FanDuel NFL snake draft begins as soon as the contest fills. There is no salary cap like you have in usual FanDuel contests, and instead, you draft a team with the rest of the players in your league just like you would in a normal season-long fantasy football draft.

After the draft, the contests work just like any other FanDuel contest. You earn points based on how your team performs on the field and every player on your team counts toward your score.

Whether your usual fantasy football league isn't playing because of the chaotic offseason or you're just looking for an extra way to have some fun and win some prizes every week, be sure to head over to the FanDuel lobby to check out the NFL snake drafts.
