Draft Dominator: How to Set Up a Real Draft in Minutes

How to set up a real draft in minutes with the Draft Dominator

There’s an old saying that goes “by failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” While that’s true (we highly recommend you prepare for your drafts), the Draft Dominator almost renders that saying obsolete thanks to a brand-new feature: Real Draft Quick Start. If for any reason you are suddenly pushed into a real draft (maybe you forgot, maybe someone asked you to sit in for them, etc.), this helpful option allows you to set up and customize a real draft in minutes.

Note: We recommend using Google Chrome or the mobile or desktop apps to get the best experience with the Draft Dominator.

Getting Started

The first step to unlocking the power of the Draft Dominator is logging into your Footballguys account. Simply enter your existing username and password. If you don’t already have an account, create one by selecting register.

Real Draft Quick Start

Once you've logged into your account and have launched the Draft Dominator, first-time users should see the following screen:

If you don’t see this screen, click on Switch Draft at the top right (Chrome/desktop). On mobile, tap the draft gears icon on the bottom right, then tap the blue Switch To Another Daft button at the top. Select the Real Draft Quick Start option. You should now see the following screen:

First things first: give your league a name. You can then make a variety of adjustments right from this window. Under the Starting Lineup drop down, you can choose from 10 common lineup settings. Below that you can adjust the number of rounds, the number of teams, and your draft position. Once you hit the green Create Draft button, you can change all of the usual settings and make more adjustments for the league under the Draft Settings button at the top of the screen (Chrome/desktop) or via the draft gears icon on mobile. That's it! You're now ready to dominate your draft.

If you need help or more information, head to the More menu (top right on desktop, bottom right on mobile) and select Help and Support. And as always, thanks for being a part of Footballguys!
