SCHEDULE. The DraftKings National Fantasy Football Tour celebrates the 59 million Fantasy Draft players in the US. The event begins at 5 p.m. with a women’s fantasy football draft seminar hosted by Stace Stern, known as the “First Lady of Fantasy Football.” “In 2004, it was love at first draft,” Stern said. “I liked the idea of putting together a team because, who hasn’t watched a game playing in the QB chair and thought ‘I could do better’ or ‘The GM doesn’t know what they’re doing’? It was an opportunity to focus on the work and see if you could actually do it better.” Jake Ciely is an award-winning senior fiction writer for The Athletic and a ranking expert. His fantasy accuracy is evident with five career bests in both football and baseball, plus several first-place finishes.
