FYI for those interested. I did purchase FanDraft and it had some very cool features and was visually appealing; I loved the ability to upload sound clips. Had several sound clips linked to my team when it was time to pick - drum corp cadence, NFL films song, Thunderstruck, etc. Kind of fun for 1st round introductions. Team bio feature also lets you put logos/icons on team page plus a narrative so I added things like career record, last year's top pick ,championships, etc. Again, just makes the experience a bit more fun. Unfortunately, can't use it as is.
I think it would work great for a draft party (in-person or online) so long as everyone is participating in the draft and has their own player ranking list. We have about 1/3 of our owners who auto draft every year for a variety of reasons. Typically family members who aren't football savvy but who still want to be in the league, or work shifts when we hold the draft and so are unavailable. Within MFL the ability to load pre-draft preferences - either player or best by position - for each round is very helpful and something FanDraft doesn't support at this time. They do have an auto draft feature but it is based on best available player using MFL ADP stats. When you look at the ADP list they provide it isn't close to any consensus lists I've seen. You can't upload your own ranking list either to have it pick based on your saved list. All of this is to say if you have members who auto draft, at this time, FanDraft isn't a viable option.
For all my complaining on the MFL draft module through the years, it's ironic to now sing its praise. Oh well, happy to do so.
My son is in a hardcore league where they draft live similar to NFL so he's happy to use the FanDraft subscription.
