I did 5 leagues this year with the FantasyPros Draft Wizard thinking it would be a good sample size to get an idea of how this draft wizard performs. I lost in ALL 5 leagues in week one (LMAO). I didn't even think that was possible given the amount of overlap between the players I had and the players I went up against.
The draft grades were B.S. as it showed all A's and B's, but the draft grades from Yahoo were mostly C's. One draft grade even predicted I would finish 14-0! Probably because they overvalued David Johnson. I had a feeling it wasn't great once it suggested I draft Coby Fleener in the later rounds. Too much emphasis was placed on having a back up at each position rather than taking the best player available.
Perhaps I just got unlucky, but with the amount of variance and luck involved in fantasy football, I would say save your money because this Draft Wizard is a waste of money. There are some things the site does well, but unless you know nothing about the NFL and don't watch it much, you can figure out the right moves on your own.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Hey CR, thanks for leaving your comments. This is the first year that our Fantasy Pros Draft Wizard review has been live during the drafting months and regular season.
What I didn't mention in this review is that a friend of mine used this tool during our 2016 draft and what I noticed is that Draft Wizard suggested older players. His record ended up being mediocre.
Have you used any other tools you feel are helpful?
