In my 20+ years of playing fantasy sports, I’ve used just about every product on the market. Some are fantastic. Many are not.
But when I find a product (or merchant) that I particularly like, I always write a review to tell others about it.
So I decided to create one page with all of my reviews across all fantasy sports. This page includes links to my reviews of merchant vendors, fantasy draft tools, in-season management software, DFS tools, and a few other miscellaneous items.
Reviews of the Fantasy Gear & Merchandise Vendors
If you’re looking for information on best fantasy football gear manufacturers, you’ll want to read through these reviews. The vendors I’ve reviewed are industry leaders when it comes to supplies for live fantasy drafts, league prizes, or stylish fantasy gear.
FantasyJocks – When it comes to products for live fantasy drafts, Fantasy Jocks is the king of the hill. From fantasy football boards to championship rings to perpetual trophies, they have it all. They have a stellar reputation as a vendor and excellent user reviews.
If you read any of my reviews of live draft products, you’ll see Fantasy Jocks routinely has the top-rated product. Read my Fantasy Jocks review for a full analysis of their product line.
Undisputed Belts – Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 5-10 years, you know that fantasy championship belts are all the rage among youngsters. And let’s be honest, they emanate an attitude that aligns quite nice with the ridiculousness of fake sports.
I wrote a detailed review of Undisputed Belts that you should check out if you’re tired of the same old fantasy football trophies.
Reviews of Fantasy Sports Tools and Draft Prep Software
If you’re trying to seriously compete for a fantasy championship, it makes sense to get help from the best fantasy advice sites on the web. The top fantasy sites have widgets, tools, and interactive draft software to keep you a step ahead of the competition.
FantasyPros – If there was ever a Swiss army knife of fantasy sports sites, FantasyPros is it. They have tools to help you gain an edge before, during, and after your fantasy drafts.
In my review of FantasyPros, I evaluate their Draft Wizard tools, My Playbook widgets, DFS tools, and all of their assistant-based software. FantasyPros supports all of the major fantasy sports for one low monthly price.
Ultimate Draft Kit – For fantasy football fans, the draft is the most important day of the season. Championships frequently come down to just a few draft picks, so you have to make them count!
The Ultimate Draft Kit has everything you need to prepare for the big day: video player reviews, exclusive tools, a free mobile app, and more. If you’re looking to gain an edge on draft day, give my Ultimate Draft Kit review a read.
Reviews of Daily Fantasy Sports Tools
Being competitive in daily fantasy sports means leveraging accurate player metrics using the most effective tools. Roster creation and contest management tools are the centerpieces of most DFS sites.
The DFS sites I review below have some of the best lineup optimizers in the industry.
Daily Fantasy Nerd – The player metrics available through the tools at Daily Fantasy Nerd are extensive. From the Vegas lines to the weather forecasts, they leave no stone unturned when it comes to projecting accurate player performances.
In addition to their lineup optimizer, DFN also has tools to help improve your bankroll management. My DailyFantasyNerd review covers both features in detail.
DFS Army – For daily fantasy players who are seeking great tools, but also looking to collaborate with the top players, DFS Army is worth a look. A DFS Army subscription will provide you with direct access to some of the top daily players in the world via Slack chat channels.
Best of all, DFS Army provides tools for every fantasy sport for one low monthly price. My DFS Army review has the details.
Draft Dashboard – Like DFS Army, Draft Dashboard has multi-sport support for an affordable monthly membership fee. If you’re interested in DFS tools, but want to try something out first, Draft Dashboard provides your first full month of access for only $1.
Learn more about their services in my Draft Dashboard review.
DFS Site Reviews
When you start playing daily fantasy sports, you’ll have to decide which DFS site to use. I spent considerable time researching every host and detail my findings in the following reviews.
DraftKings – One of the behemoths of the daily fantasy sports industry, DraftKings boasts a vast user base, large tournaments with massive payouts, and feature-rich mobile apps to round-out their platform.
I wrote an extensive Draft Kings review with everything you’d ever want to know, including exciting new features for the upcoming year.
Monkey Knife Fight – If you enjoy making sports prop bets, you’ll love Monkey Knife Fight. They offer DFS-like contests where you parlay pre-configured prop bets to beat the house.
If you like sports gambling but hate the research required to be effective in DFS, check out my Monkey Knife Fight review.
