  • 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.

  • Personally, I go RB, RB, WR, then QB

  • 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).

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 TE

  • 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)

  • 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 there

  • 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 options

  • 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, K1
