Draft Pick Advice from Top Fantasy Football
Well friends, the 2009 fantasy football draft’s are ramped up and rolling full speed. Draft parties of all kinds will be taking place all over the globe. Here in the south we like to cook out, drink adult beverages and turn it on any sports channel that is talking football.
What is the best part that makes your draft party even more enjoyable and inspiring, knowing you have the very first pick overall. And through this post I will provide you all with the wisdom to take home the championship trophy in 2009.
In recent years, oh probably the past six, LaDainian Tomlinson has ruled the top pick, even in point per reception (PPR) leagues. You knew whoever had the first pick in your draft was guaranteed to pick L.T. Not anymore. The un-spoken rules of fantasy football drafts are changing and people are wising to the new era of FFB. If you want to be a top fantasy football guru in your 2009 league the next part is for you!
- Do put together a draft plan of who you will take and in what order. Do this for the first 30 picks. So if you have the first fantasy draft pick or at least somewhere in the top you'll be prepared.
- Do read and research. We offer an awesome tool to minimize your time and efforts.
- Do participate in several online mock drafts days before your draft and always know before it's your turn to pick at least 2 or 3 different players you would like to own on your next selection.
- Do have a list of the top players at each position to help you decided should you be put in a bind.
- Do optimize your draft plan based on the type of league you are in, i.e. PPR leagues should draft based on POINTS per reception!
- Do select a high octane player such as MJD, Forte, or AP with the first pick.
- If one of those guys are gone when its your turn to draft you can take a look at our TOP 100 fantasy football players to get a good idea what to do.
- After your draft you must stay up to date on your players, wavier wire updates and injury updates need to be sent to you via email / text or else someone in your league will find out before you! Many sites offer a service to help keep you up-to-date on your team but none offer the same value, features and price as our "Dominator Service" - sign up for our fantasy football update tool and you'll always have a leg up on your league.
- Don’t draft any player on the cover of Madden NFL, see comment section below.
- Don’t draft only “house-hold” names, shake it up and find the one or two sleeper picks or top value rookie’s projected to perform beyond the norm (later rounds in the draft of-course).
- Don’t discuss your draft strategy with your friends, kids, spouse, or mother-in-law as this could destroy friendships.
- Don’t draft a kicker before the next to last round of your draft. Kickers are a dime a dozen and are started based on red zone defense.
