Take Your Talents to Vegas for Yahoo Sports National Draft Day


By Clifton Ma, Head of Fantasy Sports

It’s baaaaaaack!  On Saturday, August 23 Yahoo Sports and Fantasy Football fans around the country will be celebrating National Draft Day.  This season, we’re taking things to the next level.  Vegas baby!  


Yahoo Sports will be hosting a National Draft Day party from Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas, where everyone (subject to availability) will be treated like a VIP.  Wrangle your friends and come down to The Joint on August 23 to host your Fantasy Football draft.  In our fantasy package, we’ll be offering discounted room rates, access to Hard Rock Hotel’s exclusive clubs, a Fantasy workshop with our experts, and other fun swag including:

  • Discounted room accommodations

  • Draft Prep 101 session with Brad Evans, Yahoo Sports Columnist and host of Fantasy Football Live on Friday, August 22

We’ll also host a special edition of Fantasy Football Live with Brad Evans, Shaun King and others. They’ll also be available for in-person coaching — who are this years sleepers? When should you take this year’s top rookies?  Which kind of draft is better, snake or auction?  In the words of Brad Evans, “Bull-rush me!”  


If you can’t make it out to Vegas, no worries.  National Draft Day is NATIONAL.  For all those that host their Fantasy Football drafts on Yahoo Sports on August 23, you’ll be entered into a sweepstakes for a chance to win your own trip to Las Vegas

Don’t forget, smack talk early and often and we’ll see you in Vegas.
