I've winged it previously. I figured this season I would seek advice on the way to draft by position. Thank you in advance for your help with this. I'm trying to figure out if I should go running back, receiver, then quarterback, or running back, quarterback, then receiver.9:06am May 8 from rodneyb67
Personally, I go RB, RB, WR, then QB10:31am May 8 from propayn760
The first six picks should grab the best three RBs and best three WRs you can. I've done best when starting with at least one, if not two, RBs in the first two picks. Only then think about any other positions, and don't draft more than one QB, TE, D/ST (no earlier than RD 12), or kicker (one of the last two picks).11:14am May 8 from gallenod
First of all, before the draft just look at NFL news and team news and projections and depth charts and just find find players you like. You'll know about them and get them earlier than projected and that can be a huge reward. I have a few so far.
Now, in the first four rounds focus on RB and WR. If you picked an RB in round 1, pick a WR in round 2. Same for 3 and 4. If your pick is high enough, focus on the top RBs. If your is not in the top 4, take a WR. This decides the first four rounds.11:59am May 8 from domino122
If your pick isn't in the top 6 or 7, just pick the best player available, according to your research.
In rounds 5+ just take players you prefer, unless there is someone like Gronk, Brady, Wilson, etc on the board. If you can't land these players, focus on your bench.
And save DEF an K for the ends.12:02pm May 8 from domino122
This is just my opinion-
RB, RB, WR, WR, Best available RWT, Q, Best available RWT, etc.
After 4 rounds you should have 2 RBs and 2 WRs or a high end TE12:30pm May 8 from billyg15
Actually another tip - I normally hit the waiver wire and get rid of a drafted player or two within like 1-3 weeks of the season start. For that reason I like to take a DEF a little earlier (around rounds 10-13 of a 15 round draft)12:32pm May 8 from billyg15
Premium running backs dry up FAST, so I always try to go RB, RB if i can, but RB and WR should be your top priorities for the first 4 rounds.. the only way i wouldn;t draft a RB or WR in round 4 is if a TE like Gronk is there5:02pm May 8 from jarofmayo51
I won my league last year in part by not drafting on personal feelings (ex drafting Russell Wilson because I am Hawks fan). Also I won in part by intelligently changing my lineup based on the weekly matchup, other statistics, trading smart and picking up hot options that panned out well for at least part of the season. Personally this year I have no pressure so for me it's QB1, RB1, WR1, RB2, WR2, DEF1, TE1, QB2, RB3, WR3, TE2, DEF2, RB4, WR4, WR5, K1. Don't draft on feelings and get hot options4:37am May 9 from mrsuitntie1
QB1 or RB1 should be first depending on where ur first pick is in relation to the guys already off the board. The premium guys in those positions always go fast. I went with Rodgers last year as my first pick and will probably go with Wilson if he falls to me this year. Rodgers is just too fragile. Every year something with him. I won my league last year so there is no pressure for me. But my draft is going to be QB1, RB1, WR1, RB2, WR2, DEF1, TE1, QB2, RB3, WR3, TE2, DEF2, RB4, WR4, WR5, K14:49am May 9 from mrsuitntie1

I had Tevin Coleman on my roster, but another manager had D. Freeman already and wanted to back him up with Coleman. So I dropped him and got Carlos Hyde and claimed Austin Ekeler to be my back up player. Team;
Austin Ekeler (inactive back up by league rule)
What do you think?2:40am Aug 18 from EddieT01
