Star Fantasy Leagues is a daily fantasy sports site founded by brothers Justin and Zachary Stanley, who have both been avid fantasy sports fanatics since the earliest days of fantasy online gaming. They took this knowledge of the fantasy sports world and used it to create a vision of what their ideal daily fantasy sports site would look like.

Software and Interface

The interface at Star Fantasy Leagues is clean and concise across the board. Their main lobby features all of their available games with a number of helpful filters to narrow down the overall selection. Filters include sport, game size, buy-in, league duration and draft type.

The draft rooms at StarFantasyLeagues are also easy to use and filter through. Players can be broken down by position, team, and matchup in the player pool area and your roster is easy to view directly to the right of the available player pool. In the draft rooms, SFL offers some high quality stats and injury information that you can reference quickly while building your daily lineups.

SFL also has import/export all features that allow you to quickly submit the same lineup across multiple games or import another lineup into the current draft room. Mass entering lineups into GPPs and H2H games is a quick and straightforward process thanks to these features.

Game Offerings

Star Fantasy Leagues offers many daily guaranteed prize pool (GPP) tournaments spread across all four major sports. They also have several double-up guaranteed games running daily. This is on top of the traditional head-to-head, 3-man, 10-man, etc. games. Buy-ins range from daily freerolls, a concept disappearing quickly on most daily fantasy sites, to $420 games.

Starting with the 2013 NFL season, Star Fantasy Leagues will be introducing a unique season-long platform. This should provide traditional fantasy players a new and exciting way to play fantasy sports.

Star Fantasy Leagues offers the industry standard rake in their lower buy-in games at 10% of the prize pool. As you buy-into higher games, that rake is reduced at an impressive rate. Their $109 games have a rake of around 8% and their highest buy-in games, $420 per person, have just under a 5% rake!
