About

Left Tackle LLC formed in the winter of 2009 with the goal of revolutionizing the fantasy sports industry. Inspired by online poker’s popularity and applying similar concepts to fantasy sports, the team sought to create a destination where fantasy users could participate against anyone in the U.S., getting instant gratification on the various leagues they join. No longer would fantasy sports users have to play only against their friends and co-workers in private leagues, or go out and collect money if they had won a particular league. No longer would an injury to a first round pick ruin the whole fantasy season. Left Tackle has solved all of these and other shortcomings with DraftStreet.com. With a team heavily experienced in fantasy sports, web development, online marketing, and web analytics, all of the pieces were in place to take over the world of fantasy sports. After doing due diligence on the legalities of the concept, the Left Tackle team hired some developers and brought their idea to life. In the summer of 2010, the team officially released DraftStreet.com. With a Series A funding round behind them, the team is focused on continuing to drive the fantasy world sports world in new, more user-friendly, directions.
