Overview

Background

DraftStreet.com is privately-held and owned and operated by Left Tackle LLC., which was formed in the winter of 2009.  Inspired by online poker’s popularity and applying similar concepts to fantasy sports, the Left Tackle team sought to create a destination where fantasy users could participate against anyone in the U.S., getting instant gratification on the various leagues they join.

After doing due diligence on the legalities of the concept, the Left Tackle team hired some developers and brought their idea to life. In the summer of 2010, the team officially released DraftStreet.com. The company obtain US$1.6 million is series A funding in late 2010 from a group of undisclosed investors.

Contests Offered

At DraftStreet, you can currently join fantasy leagues for NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL, PGA, NCAA FB, and NCAA BB. For each of these sports, you can play in free leagues or money leagues and either draft your teams through a traditional, snake draft or through the salary cap format. With the salary cap format, you don’t have to wait for others to join the fantasy sports league and you can pick a team in under 5 minutes. With a snake format, you must wait for others to fill up the fantasy league before drafting, but can enter the draft room right away to queue up your players. League sizes range from 2 users to 20 users to guaranteed prize pool leagues, which allow for over 500 entries. The entry fees range from free to $2 to $420.

Managing Your Account

Users are limited to two (2) PayPal withdrawal requests over any 7 day period. Any attempts after the second will be automatically blocked, or can be submitted and delayed until eligible date at the user’s request. There is no limit on withdrawals requested via check. Any checks that are returned for incorrect address will be re-sent free of charge. Users may request replacement checks for lost or stolen withdrawal checks by paying a stop payment fee of $27.00. Checks that have been cleared or deposited will not be eligible for replacement.

Prizes will be paid out within an hour of the completion of the scoring period. Funds will be added to users’ accounts and will be available for withdrawal or entry into cash leagues immediately.

Suspended, Postponed, or Cancelled Games

If a game is not played to completion within the specified scoring period (postponed, cancelled or suspended) no stats will count from this game and all players involved will contribute zero fantasy stats.

Doubleheaders

When teams are scheduled to play two games in one scoring period(completion of suspended games not included), Hitters’ and Relief Pitchers’ stats will only be counted from the FIRST game on that date starting at or after the specified scoring period and Starting Pitchers’ stats will be used from both games.

Tie Breakers

There are no tie-breakers for any leagues on DraftStreet. Users will split the prize assigned to the specific place(s) evenly in the case of a tie. For example, if there is a two-way tie for first place in a 6-player league, those two users will split the 1st and 2nd place prize. If there is a two-way tie for first in a 3-player league, those two users will split the prize for 1st place (since there is no 2nd place prize in a 3-player league).
