Draft Running Backs early and often
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) July 8, 2008
To help you get ready for the upcoming season we are offering some free fantasy football advice on how to prepare for your fantasy draft.
These five (5) tips have been passed on to thousands of fans over the past 12 years, who have taken home Fantasy Football championships and we only think it is fair to continue sharing them early in the season:
1. Know the Rules of Your Fantasy Football League! Your scoring system, starting line-up requirements, number of rounds in your draft, minimum/maximum players you can have draft at each position, how you add and drop players, how are trades processed all very important information and needed when preparing your fantasy football strategy. Yes, it does take strategy and preparation is king.
2. Draft Wide Receivers and Running Backs Early and Often! Last year we would have said "Draft Running Backs early and often", but that has changed and the newest tip is to look at both Running Backs and Wide Receivers as almost equal. Yes, there still are the stud running backs, but with so many teams having durability concerns they are making sure to "share the load" with a back-up, its very important you do your research on both positions.
3. Let the Draft Dictate where you Draft your Fantasy QB: The quarterback position is so important and there are only three to four fantasy football stud quarterbacks (i.e. Brady, Manning, Romo) worth taking in the first two rounds, be careful and make sure that you come out of the first 10 picks with starting players at every position accept defense's and kickers. Stay tuned as to why.
4. Don't start drafting Kickers and Defenses until after the 10th round and then don't draft two at either position. Use your fantasy football picks on Wide Receivers, Running Backs, Quarterbacks and Tight Ends, but don't waste holding two defenses, or kickers on your roster. You can always pick one up on the waiver wire to get you trough bye weeks, never under estimate the importance of a solid roster at the key positions.
5. Pay attention to bye weeks especially when you draft more than one player from a team. Don't let the bye schedule manipulate or change your fantasy football draft pick strategy but just be aware of it.
