Transition to Opta Scoring

As the Premier League season begins tomorrow, we know that everyone is excited for another great year of Draft Fantasy Football! It has been a long wait and some crazy things have transpired since Leicester City hoisted the Premier League trophy.

For us at Draft Fantasy Football, we have been working hard to ensure we deliver the best service possible and to provide the most enjoyable fantasy football platform available. One of the things we have been most excited to offer this season is live scoring from Opta. We have been integrating Opta scoring into our system and the updates will not be fully live for the first gameweek as we finish the integration. Expect the first full updates to occur Saturday night and Sunday. There will be minor adjustments to scores for things such as assists and all will be in order by the completion of the gameweek.

Other updates include a change to the waiver rules. All players will now go on waivers at the start of each gameweek. The other waiver rules have not changed.

Thanks and enjoy the 2016/17 Draft Fantasy Football Premier League season.
