What is Fantasizr?

Fantasizr allows you to build a fantasy league out of ANYTHING. Fantasizr uses traditional fantasy sport frameworks to "fantasize" reality tv shows, sports, co-worker attendance, i.e., anything.

Create a league with one of our supported sports (we'll keep score with the Fantasizr Sports Bureau) or create one of your own. Invite your friends, draft a team, and follow along throughout the season.

Fantasizr for Business & Sales

Let Fantasizr create a fantasy game with your staff (or offices) as the players. Our fantasy engine can be tailored to your specific needs, with relevant business metrics replacing yards and touchdowns.

Increase your sales team engagement by tracking performance throughout the fantasy season. Fantasizr creates an easy-to-use platform for incentives, fostering motivation and competition in a fun, interesting way.

Yes you can! On our Create Sport Form check the box that says "Build a team each week". This makes your sport a "Pool game".

Sure! Here is a custom racing league.

A sample league modeling a sales office: Custom Fantasy Sales League

In a one-time snake draft league, when two teams are present, a red 'Start Draft' button will be present on the league page. The pick order is randomized and the list of players is emailed to the first owner/captain. Make your selection directly in the email or from the Fantasizr dashboard. The next owner/captain will receive an email of the remaining available players. The draft order will "snake" so the order will be flipped for the next round. Example pick order 1, 2, 3, 3, 2, 1, 1, 2, 3 etc.

In a pool league (where you draft a new team before each round/week/episode), teams can draft independently at any time by clicking Settings->Set Lineup.

Points are maintained for each statistic (ours or ones that you define) during the season.
  • Custom recreational sports league (soccer, kickball, hockey) Create a sport of all the players; draft them and award points for stats you define (goals, assists, home runs, etc.)
  • Fantasy TV Shows: Create a show of all the characters, draft them, award points for stats you define (# love scenes, # kills, # lives saved, etc.)
  • Fantasy School: Create a sport of students/competitors and give points for GPA, bonuses, test scores
  • Fantasy Politics: Create a sport of all the politicians in an election and track points for winning the election (10 pts.) with landslide bonuses (20 pts for victory more than 5%), challenger bonus (10 pts for defeating incumbent) etc...
You can play against your friends in a private league or join one of our public leagues and we will match you up with people to play with.

When your draft starts (in a public league it will start automatically; in a private league the commissioner/organizer of the league will start it), you will get an email with a list of players to choose from. Be sure to add noreply@fantasizr.appspotmail.com to your contacts list to ensure the draft emails do not go to your spam folder.

In a pool league format (where you draft a new team before each round/week/episode), teams can draft independently at any time by clicking Settings->Set Lineup.

For draft leagues: You can create a trade by going to Settings->Trades on the league page. The trade menu is also used for adding/dropping free agents (The team you "trade" with is called Free Agents and starts as the list of undrafted players). After the trade is created, the owner of the receiving team will receive an email notification to either accept or deny the trade.
In the league settings, Settings->Edit League Info, update the week started to any prior week or the beginning of the season.
