Draft day. Perhaps the most crucial day of your fantasy football season. This is whenever you build your team. This is whenever you laugh at your opponents when they pick a wounded player. This is when you find gems in the 7th round who outperform players picked in the 3rd. Put simply: don’t screw it up! Let’s go over some advice that you should follow on draft day:
Have your own cheat sheets! I can’t stress this enough. ทีเด็ดบอลเดี่ยว So many people use the rankings that their draft software uses (a la Yahoo), without noticing they’ve not updated it to reflect recently injured players. Also, your scoring system is not reflected in pre-made rankings. If your receivers gain one time for every single reception, that’ll have a huge influence on the placement of possession receivers. Utilize the given rankings as a basis, but alter them to reflect injuries and scoring systems.
In an area league? Don’t draft your neighborhood players. It’s an all natural tendency for fans to overrate players on their favorite teams, so if your league is situated in St. Louis, you’d probably need to overpay to get guys like Bulger or Holt. Hype them up the weeks before your draft while conversing with the other owners, and then sit back and laugh when your chosen play gets picked three rounds too early.
Serve plenty of alcohol at the draft…and don’t touch it! Let your buddies confuse Luke Staley with Duce Staley, while you remain unimpaired. Although most will be fine after a couple drinks, it’s not worth the risk. Any slight advantage you will get is worthwhile, and if just one owner accidentally skips over a person because of the drinks, you’ve done your job. Remember kids, don’t drink and draft!
Record everyone’s picks. Online, this shouldn’t be considered a problem, because your drafting service will more than likely get it done for you personally, nonetheless it might be a difficult task in a live draft. However, it’s worth the troubles. Maybe you are thinking, why bother? Simply, it gives you the capacity to give certain players you realize will be available later. For instance, you’re picking 8th in a 10-man league, you are willing to take a kicker, but there’s also a deep-sleeper RB on the board. By considering your notes, you observe that the guys with the 9th and 10th pick have previously taken kickers, and might have no reason to choose another. Therefore, you can safely take the sleeper RB, confident that your kicker will be there once the draft swings back around.
