NRL Fantasy Draft is a team management game based on the real thing and it’s FREE to enter.
In just minutes you can be playing against your friends, creating new rivalries and be engaged in the excitement of the NRL in a new and totally addictive way.
To begin, join a league and your team will be playing against opponents in your league each week. The highest scoring team in each match-up wins.
Take turns with your friends to select players, with only one team in each league able to ‘draft’ any given player. There is no salary cap in Draft. Your players will then be allocated a score based on their actual performance for that round.
After tracking the news of the week and assessing the opinions of the experts, adjust and improve your team each week by trading players in and out, as long as the other users in your league agree to your trades or your picking up Restricted and Unrestricted Free Agents.
Watch the real games with new passion for individual players now in your Fantasy team and get the Fantasy vibe for life!
The default setting for Fantasy Draft sees your League Games start in Round 1, however, you are able to change this whilst setting up your League. If you start a draft league after the NRL season has commenced league play will begin at the start of the upcoming round unless the league commissioner specifies otherwise in the settings.
Note that there is no overall Competition for Fantasy Draft and no prizes to be won.


Player Trades FAQs

Yes, you can either trade this player with another team in your league, or delist this player and sign either a Free Agent or a Restricted Free Agent.
Free agents can be immediately added to your team via trading, whereas restricted free agents are subject to a waiver period. This waiver period allows all the others in your league to make a claim for that player.
This is likely due to you having a lower priority for the trade than the other team.
Who ultimately gets to trade in restricted free agents is governed by your league’s agency rules.
