Equal parts intimidating and intriguing, the Major League Ultimate fantasy game favors the informed.  With up to eight players in a league and ten rounds of draft picks, you might feel by the end of your draft that your picks are mostly guesswork. Certainly MLU hopes that many of these names will become nationally-known by the end of its inaugural season. But, in the meantime? Ultiworld put together a draft kit that has you covered.

First, take a look at a crowdsourced top 50 picks, ranked by the number of times each player has been drafted in leagues so far. Then scroll down to see a mock draft from our own league of five Ultiworld writers and one guest contributor (Ring of Fire and Team USA’s Brett Matzuka), including analysis for why we picked who we did.

The AUDL's Fantasy portal, Unbenchable.The dream is becoming a reality. Fantasy ultimate, normally reserved as a sideline game to play as you watch the finals of a tournament, is coming into its own on the Internet. Earlier this week, the American Ultimate Disc League announced their new online fantasy game. Log in with your Facebook account, and you can pick players each week. Scoring is tracked

Scoring is straightforward: scores, assists, and Ds are +1; turnovers are -1. You can also take a player as “negative,” reversing the scoring. Stats will be kept through Leaguevine. Pick smart and you can win some nice prizes.

Major League Ultimate has yet to announce their fantasy game, but it is in development by Ultiapps, an Ultiworld partner.

Ultiworld is pleased to announce our new fantasy coverage, which will run alongside our statistics work throughout the professional ultimate season. Since today is the season opener for the AUDL, we begin there. Read more →
