Let's take a closer look at the Rookie of the Year draft board + kit.
Let’s start with the draft board
The Rookie of the Year is printed on Premium Matte 50 LB paper. Ideally this draft board should be mounted to a flat wall, but many leagues have mounted this to a piece of cardboard (from Staples or Costco) to provide more versatility. A standard 10-team draft board will be printed on a 48-Inch x 36-Inch poster.
Tell me about the labels
We use premium fluorescent labels, colored by position, to help make your draft party run smooth and efficient. Each label features the players first name, last name and bye week to ensure that your draft party runs as smooth as possible. Each label is 3 inches wide and 1 inch tall and players names can be read from 25+ feet away. The Rookie of the Year draft kit comes with over 330 player labels (+ blanks) to ensure that the player pool contains everybody relevant for the 2018 fantasy season.

2018 Draft Party Prep:
You already know that a successful draft party starts with your draft prep. As commish, you have a lot of responsibilities, none of which you get any credit for. To help you with your 2018 fantasy draft party, we’ve come up with a few ideas / suggestions to your league to the next level.
1 - Look for a Unique Draft Venue
Listen, nobody us going to complain if you decide to host the draft at Bill’s house… for the 3rd consecutive year… but we suggest looking for a different spot. Here are a few ideas that you should consider in 2018:
1) Resort / VRBO - You’d be surprised at what options you have in your local area for a reasonable cost. Just make sure the location is within the delivery radius of a local pizza parlor.
2) Outdoor Draft - Who said your draft party needs to be indoors? Pack up the coolers and head to a park for an outdoor draft party. Ask everyone to pitch in $20 and get your draft party catered by Moes or other place that folks like.
3) Upscale Restaurant - You’ve already heard of drafting at a local sports bar, but have you considered renting a room at an upscale restaurant? Keep the jerseys in the closet for the night and opt for Tuxedo’s or other black tie apparel.
2 - Research Your Team
Even though you’ll be doing a lot of planning for the party itself, you can’t forget to research your own team. It’s okay to spend a few hours on the clock researching sleepers and listening to podcasts. Here are a few resources that will help you maximize your time in 2018: Fantasy Footballers Podcast, Fantasy Focus Podcast, Fantasy Pros Rankings.
3 - Have a Fantasy Loser “Celebration”
At the start of your fantasy draft party make sure to properly shame the loser of last years fantasy season. We suggest a well thought out celebration such as singing the national anthem in a pink tutu, or a GOT “Shame-like” entrance. If you have a unique idea, make sure to record it and upload it to Twitter / Instagram tagging us @FFDraftBoard. Read this article for more fantasy loser punishments.
4 - Come up with a Unique Way to Determine your Fantasy Draft Order
Let’s face it, nobody wants to draft in reverse order from last years’s standings anymore. Read this article for ways to determine your fantasy draft order or come up with something different and tag us @FFDraftBoard.
