I am running a fantasy baseball league. We are running the league on ESPN, but it is supposed to be a keeper league and ESPN’s keeper settings for a snake draft blow. We need to find a new place to hold the actual draft, but since we are scattered across several states we need an online arena where we can draft. Anyone have a suggestion?
We use group chats in Skype* for our ESPN (football) keeper leagues… If you’re good at data entry, you could conceivably refresh ESPN’s website in real time; otherwise, just make a shared Google document* and type/paste in picks that way. (Hopefully, your players can keep track of what positions they need; if not, what Munch said makes a lot of sense.)
*There are plenty of other services that’d work as well. Those are just the ones we use.
I don’t know how the app compares to ESPN’s, but I know that they’ve made a lot of improvements. I was very easily able to do my NCAA bracket on the app. I think they have mock drafts available via the app - you might see if the people who need better mobile access are happy with the UI on that.
I have a similar related question about fantasy baseball sites, so I’ll ask here rather than start a new thread:
Are there any websites where I can pay an entry fee (say $20 to $30) to join a public league with the top to or three teams get prize money at the end of the season (playoffs in head to head leagues)? In the past, I did this on Yahoo! (last time was in 2012), but now all of the public leagues seem to be free on Yahoo! offer. I and two friends want to manage teams in the same league for small $$$, but we do not have enough people among us (three is not enough for a league) for creating a custom/private league.
