First of all, fantasy sports have allowed sports fans to expand their interaction with their favorite sports and players to a whole new level. Fantasy Sports League Strategic Guidelines
Usually, people will think various strategies to apply while making a draft so that they can choose a best fantasy football team. It will end up as a big dispute, if you get suggestions from ten different professed specialists because you will most likely get 10 unique responds. This really can have a big impact on player ranking. Be aware of your scoring system as it can have an impact on the ranking system you are using.
2. Forget your loyalties – his really should be obvious, but many do not follow this key rule. If you are playing in a competitive fantasy football league its business not personal. Drafting with your heart rather than following the rules will cost you the season.
3. Beware of Injury – Fantasy Football is a game decided by injuries. Going into the draft you need to know who is hurt or coming off injury.
4. Playing for a contender/bad team=less opportunity – This is an interesting rule, but it should play a role in your draft strategy. When deciding between two players it is best to take the one who plays for a winning team.
5. Player Projections – When deciding who to draft between players who play different positions you must take into account the standard deviation of the ranking associated with WR/TE.
6. Position Scarcity – Always be aware of who your opponents have drafted.
7. Year End (came on strong vs. faded late) – If two players are ranked right next to one another, think of what is going into the ranking. Did one player come on strong at the end of the season? Is one of the players injury prone? Who is playing on a better team? Answering these questions will help who to decide on – surprisingly it often is not who is ranked higher.
8. Monitor the Bye Week – Make sure you monitor when your players bye week is. You can really set yourself up for failure if everyone has a bye on the same week.
9. Kickers & D wait until the end – This is a golden draft rule. Take a kicker in the last round and defense in the second to last round
10. Don’t overrate sleepers and rookies – Rookies typically play like rookies. Don’t get caught up in the hype. The only rookie position we would recommend taking could be a running back. With a plethora of fantasy information there are not many true sleepers these days.
