How do I use the FantasyPros Browser Extension with my Yahoo live and mock drafts?

The Draft Wizard® Draft Assistant works with both live Yahoo drafts and mock drafts. In order for the Draft Assistant w/ Sync to work with your live real or mock draft, you must: 

1. Install one of the following browsers

2. Allow third-party cookies

  • For Chrome: Go to chrome://settings/cookies in your Chrome address bar, then make sure General settings are set to "Allow all cookies" or "Block third-party cookies in Incognito".

Note that Yahoo does not make the draft order available to us until approximately 30 minutes before your draft starts. 

For Mock Drafts

  1. Open the Yahoo Mock Draft Assistant in your browser.  
  2. Enter your Yahoo mock draft room URL. Note that this NOT the waiting room, but the address of the Yahoo mock draft room itself once the mock draft starts. 
  3. Click the “Launch My Assistant” button from the Mock Draft Assistant to begin syncing your mock draft.
