In this space I will give you tips and analysis about fantasy football draft strategies for the upcoming season. Make sure you check back frequently, because there are tons of changes between now and the start of the season!
Fantasy football draft strategies can vary widely from one league to the next. With so many different ways of organizing a fantasy league and ways to strategize on draft day, it is important that you understand the ins and outs of your leagues rules and scoring.
The first item on your draft strategy checklist should be to understand the rules of your league. The number of players on each roster, the number of bench spots, the number of starting positions, the scoring system etc. should all be understood thoroughly before entering into any draft or auction.
Once you have familiarized yourself with each leagues rules, you can begin to plan how you will approach your draft differently in each league. For example, if your main league has a large roster with several bench spots and a PPR (points per reception) scoring system then you may want to target some WRs early in your draft. While in another league that has a smaller roster and no PPR scoring system you may want to target RBs early instead.
Understanding everything about your leagues rules and scoring system is an important part of deciding what direction to take when drafting your team..
Picking a team name is an important part of any fantasy draft. A clever team name can help you get noticed, but it can also make you look like a tool. Here are some tips to help you pick the right name:
Be creative. Don’t go with a basic team name like Team 1 or Your Name’s Team. Get creative and think of something clever or funny to use as your team name. You should be able to find something that represents you as an owner, while still being unique and funny. Avoid clichés like “The Brady Bunch” or “Peyton’s Place.”
Choose a name that is relevant to the year in sports. Try to pick a team name that relates to the events going on in the world of sports when you are drafting. This way your team name will have meaning and relevance for years to come. For example, in 2010 you could choose a team name relating to Brett Favre, LeBron James, Tiger Woods, or even the Vancouver Olympics.
Use sarcasm in your team name if you are confident in your drafting skills. Nobody wants their team compared to the Cleveland Browns unless they know their team is the real deal. If your fantasy football league allows for trash talking of other owners before and during the draft
If you’re a fantasy football owner, the draft is without question your favorite time of year. It’s when you get to build the team you’ve been dreaming about since last season ended. A great draft can get your team off to a fast start, while a bad draft could have you playing catch-up all season.
If you’re drafting this weekend, here are some tips and strategies for maximizing your potential in the early rounds.
Draft Strategy: The First Three Rounds
The first three rounds of your draft dictate how good or bad your team will be. You need to come out of these first three rounds with a solid core of consistent players at RB and WR. If you miss on a guy in the first three rounds, it’s not the end of the world; but if you miss on two or more guys in this span, you’re going to be in trouble!
Here are some players I like in Round 1: Tom Brady (QB), Adrian Peterson (RB), Jamaal Charles (RB), Doug Martin (RB), Ray Rice (RB), CJ Spiller* (RB)*, Calvin Johnson (WR) and AJ Green (WR). Some guys I don’t like: Matt Ryan (QB), Aaron Rodgers (QB) and Julio Jones*(
Drafting a fantasy football team is the first step to winning your league. A well-drafted team will give you a great shot at the playoffs and potentially a championship, while an ill-advised draft can ruin your season almost before it starts.
So how do you avoid the latter? It all comes down to research. Knowing which players are good and which ones are bad is only part of the equation. You also need to know who’s going to get playing time, and who’s going to be stuck on the bench.
Injuries can play a role in this too. If a player goes down with an injury, his backup could be in line for a big opportunity. But will he be able to take advantage of it? That’s where we come in. We’ll tell you everything you need to know about your favorite team and help you figure out what that means for your fantasy squad.
I have always loved football, it has been a dream of mine to play in the NFL. After playing high school football my dream was crushed. I was only 5’8″ and 185 pounds, which is not big enough to play at a high level. After I stopped playing the game, I got into fantasy football. At first it was just a fun thing to do with friends. But after a few years I started getting serious about it. Now I consider myself an expert and want to share my knowledge with you.
