20 Things To Know Before Your Fantasy Football Draft


Fantasy Football Draft Strategy Advice, Tips

Start with a five-round plan of attack

The one thing you do know going into a 12-team fantasy football draft is that you will end up with five of the top-60 picks. Once you draw a selection between No. 1 (Jonathan Taylor) and No. 12, it’s easy to think too much about that first pick and not about the other core-four picks that follow. In most leagues, these are the players who should consistently make up at least half of your weekly starters.

A no-brainer first-round pick of an RB1 or WR1 means little if you don’t back him up with a bevy of support. Participate in mock drafts with your pick and league specifics to know what combinations of talent you can get so when you’re on the clock for real, you know your best options and how you can audible if a pick doesn’t fall as you expected.

This is the fantasy football version of your opening drive, and whoever scripts their first series the best usually ends up having the most success all season long.


These tier lists can be used in season-long leagues more than in Daily Fantasy Sports on sites like Fanduel, DraftKings, Yahoo, or even Drafters.


Haven’t heard of Drafters before? They are the ORIGINAL DFS Snake Draft site. Before DK and FD, Drafters had snake drafts that you would get paid out daily and not season-long. If you sign up using the link provided you will get FREE money after you deposit as little as $10.

With Preseason underway, there are MULTIPLE players who are either on the bubble, possibly injured, or could make or break your draft. Here are 20 facts you should know before you draft another money team this year.


1. The Steelers want to reduce Najee Harris snaps by 10-15% this season.

2. Ronald Jones is a cut candidate heading into the final 2 weeks of camp.

3. Kareem Hunt returns to Browns’ camp after a brief holdout. There’s no way he gets traded, especially with the QB situation this year.

4. AJ Dillon has seen ‘major’ passing game work in Packers camp. You can feel confident with Dillon if you miss out on Jones early.

5. Mike Evans suffered a ‘minor’ hamstring injury in camp. He usually does this every year and will be fine.

6. Rookie Isiah Pacheco has a real shot at the RB2 role in Kansas City. We know the RB situations in KC aren’t conducive to RB success generally, but with Hill leaving, could open up some more fantasy points here.

7. A 3-headed backfield is forming in Buffalo as Zack Moss runs with the 1st team offense often in camp. The backfield has always been a mess there and really only good for DFS.

8. Other ‘minor’ injuries to look out for as of now: Kadarius Toney (knee), Melvin Gordon (foot), Russell Gage (leg)

9. JK Dobbins is on track to return Week 1. He’s the clear #1 back here but this still could easily be turned into a RBBC.

10. Rookie Tyler Allgeier has been the most consistent runner in Falcons camp. Something to monitor the next couple of weeks.

11. Eno Benjamin is winning the RB2 job over Darrel Williams in Cardinals camp. If you’re looking for a late-round flyer at RB.

12. Baker Mayfield has established himself as the ‘clear QB1’ in Carolina. Draft with confidence here.

13. Matthew Stafford is managing an arm issue. One side says it’s fine, one side said it’s a significant injury. Draft with caution.

14. Elijah Mitchell is the ‘clear-cut No.1 RB’ in 49ers camp. Would 100% handcuff him with Sermon to be safe.

15. Brandon Aiyuk has been the best player in 49ers camp. Draft with confidence here.

16. Mitch Trubisky has been the best QB option during training camp for the Steelers and is expected to be QB 1, but the leash isn’t that long and could be starting for a short time.

17. Rondale Moore will have a LARGE role in 2022 per Kingsbury. At least til Nuk is back.

18. Rookie TE Daniel Bellinger is the clear favorite TE1 so far in Giants camp. Late round flyer if you miss out on the big TE guns.

19. KJ Hamler is on track to play in week 1. Could quickly become Russell Wilson’s favorite target this year.

20. Jahan Dotson has been the best player so far for the Commanders during training camp. Could have a big year if all the attention goes to McLaurin.
