Hey guys, BigFan here (I feel like billy mays), I wanted to update you with everything that's been happening at FanRL HQ during this RLCS offseason. Also, to let you know some things that we're currently working on, and the features you'll be seeing later on this fantasy season. I'll keep this article updated as I check things off.

If you notice any problems with the website, please message me (BigFan) on discord. I try to catch all the bugs I can but your help would be massively appreciated.

Whats New

The majority of the offseason was spent working on the new Snake Draft feature. Many people messaged me about this last season, and I'm very happy to have something available. If you haven't tried it out yet, its a ton of fun, especially with a group of friends. You can learn more about the snake draft feature here. Brainstorming, and coming up with structure that would fit the RLCS format wasn't easy, but luckily Fox was able to put the pieces of the puzzle together. Like myself, he's been playing fantasy sports for a long time, and so together, our half sized brains, came together to form one subpar brain, and give you guys the snake draft feature. This 2022-2023 season will be the first time we've had this type of format for playing fantasy rlcs. It was a challenge merging what we wanted to happen, with how the rlcs format currently works, but we hope you guys enjoy it, and hopefully we can continue to make adjustments and really make it into something everyone can be excited about.
