How To – Fantasy Football Draft

It’s almost that time of the year again! You can always tell fantasy football is just around the corner when everyone in the NFL starts crying about their contract. Now to the fantasy part… In my opinion, my favorite and I feel best style of fantasy football is the head-to-head leagues, with the basic scoring 1 point per 10 yards, 6 points for a td, -4 for a turnover. This will be the scoring I base my drafting off of. I will be explaining the offensive side of the ball only, for every league has different defensive scoring and lineups. Example – if my quarterback were to throw for 320 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 turnovers, he would have 30 points. Also, this is not for a keeper league.

When getting ready for a fantasy football league, the first thing you need to is preparation. Never ever go into a draft without all the essential tools and knowledge. The very first thing I will do to get ready, is write myself a list of players off the top of my head I think are going to be productive and possibly explode and list yourself your top 5 rookies. After just making this list, just place it to the side because we are now going to be doing real research and will come back to that later.

What to look for in players

* Are they new to a team? Just traded?

* New additions to the team? (Team drafted a running back or Running Back by Committee system)

* Contract Year for the player?

* Coming off an Injury?

* Was a teammate of theirs injured? (Your interested in a ทางเข้า ufabet WR and the teams QB tore shoulder last year)

* SERIOUS off-season issues? (T.O. in philly)

* Age / Years in League

Okay, so you just realized that half of those players on that list you wrote up get scratched off for reasons on that list. It’s okay, there are tons of players out there other then the ones on your list. Now to check out my favorite website for Fantasy Football FFToolBox. This website will help provide you with cheat sheet’s and all(well most) of the “what to look for in players” list. Now produce yourself a cheat sheet according to your scoring system, print yourself out all the contract year players, 3rd year WR’s, free agents, etc etc… Now compile yourself the Ultimate List.

So for the last 2 weeks you have studied and modified your Ultimate List day in and out, waiting for draft day. You get in the car and think you forgot something. Here’s your list…
