Just a quick article I threw together. It won't highlight any sleepers and if you have been around fantasy football for any number of years, then this information is probably comes as second nature.



In the 29 years I have been participating and managing a league in fantasy football, I still haven’t see everything. Sure I saw an owner (me) draft a kicker in round 1, even saw another owner draft a player because he liked his name (Louie Lipps). This year will bring another season of unknowns that fantasy owners must sort though and make decisions on. A common question I hear, “Who do I take in round 1?” Not sure why there happens to be so much debate and question when it comes to the first pick or the first round in the fantasy football draft. What you should be more focused on are the players in the middle to late rounds.




You can read the rest of the aricle here, titled Who do I draft?

Enjoyed the article TBH! Thanks! I look forward to your draft results after this weekend. I'm in a league where we start 2 QBs and I'm curious as to how your teams pans out... Good luck!

Its those later rounds when you find the gems of a draft. Do your home work, pay attention to depth charts and watch preseason games into the 4th quarter so you know who the #4-5-6 guys are on the depth chart and no matter what NEVER DRAFT A KICKER IN THE FIRST ROUND. Good stuff TB!

Yeah it only took one year to realize Ali Haji-Shiekh wasn't going to win me the league. Yet, 27 years later I am reminded of it at draft time.

I Have the first pick in a 12 team league. Who do I draft, A. Foster or A.Rodgers. I'm leaning toward Foster, I think I can get a top 10 QB later in the draft. Hate picking at #1 have to wait for 23 more picks before i choose my second player, which I am leaning towards another RB and WR. What are your thoughts.

Scoring:
Non-PPR
1 pt per 10 yrds (rush & receiving)
6 pts per TD (rush & receiving)
1 pt per 25 yrds (passing)
4 pts per TD (passing)
1 pt per 25 yrds (returning)
-1 for INT
-1 Fumble lost

Yeah #1 isn't fun. General concensus will say Foster. I tend to agree with a basic scoring system. RBs will be much tougher to come by in round 2, 23 picks later. I do like your line of thinking of being able to get a top 10 QB maybe at 23 or 24. I would think you might see the likes of Andre Johnson still available, maybe even Larry Fitz (outside chance) to end round 2. Round 3, depending on how QBs (potential top 10) are remaining, you might take one at 3 or roll with a RB/WR. Stay flexible and see where the best available players are when it comes back to you. Based on ADP I see names like Ryan, Vick and E Manning still around in the 4th possibly 5th. Good luck!
