Tips for a Strong Fantasy Football Draft

Check out as well as listen to as much as you can from different sources– No one is a specialist yet you’ll never hear fantasy experts confess that since their livelihoods rely on keeping up the lie. Matthew Berry is an exceptional writer and also I appreciate his columns, yet it is his permanent work to understand fantasy sports and also he is wrong concerning 70 % of the moment. It’s a game; the real professionals are in Vegas removing with their competence. That being in thoughts, review every fantasy write-up you could make time for from August 1st until draft day. Hearing various names and point of views will help you to end up being comfy composing outside of your convenience zone.

Do not draft gamers from your preferred teams– Perhaps I am merely a jaded Skins follower however this rule should use anywhere outside of Denver. In my experience, oftentimes you are having fun with people that root for the exact same teams. This places a costs on gamers from those groups. Fantasy football is about worth. In spite of Larry Michael’s Snyder-approved, scripted buzz, the Skins aren’t racking up 40 points per video game this year and also likely neither is your favored group, whoever that could be. Keep away from reaching for your team’s gamers– when they inevitably permit you down it is a dual gut-punch.

Strike the waiver wire hard the initial 3 weeks of the season– You read every little thing as well as you still composed a horrible team. It takes place. Now you know just how the Raiders really feel annually. In the first three weeks a running back will emerge which no one saw coming. If you composed inadequately the waiver cord can be your rescuer. If that falls short …

Do not be afraid to make fields– Everyone falls asleep the evening after a draft saying, “But if …” For the most part those dreams do not become a reality and you realize one area of your group isn’t going to last 16 weeks. Do not hesitate to poach other groups for their excess skill. Team “Stable of Grinders” can’t begin six running backs. Throw him an offer, acquire the conversation began, or merely wish his newborn is vomiting on him when the profession is sent and he accidentally attacks ‘Accept.’.

Know your league– I do not imply investing evenings peaking in your commissioner’s windows, feel in one’s bones the fundamentals. Which is conventional? Which is threatening? What positions have they filled in already? Which is fat as well as drunk? Knowing the solutions to these standard inquiries, particularly for the managers preparing prior to and after you, will aid you determine whether the 11th round is time to take the trigger on Justin Hunter … shhhhh. Which advises me … when will we ultimately put a bullet in the term “sleeper?” Unless you are talking about the Brad Pitt/Kevin Bacon traditional, acquire that played-out sound out of right here.

Handcuff at the very least among your beginning running backs– If you are investing a Top 20 badger a RB you need to buy his data backup in the last 5 rounds of the draft. Or do not. Folks drive about without insurance policy day-to-day as well as I’m certain it works out great for them.

Hanging around to compose a QB is not the worst decision you can make– You ‘d be shocked just how much skill you could accumulate when your first seven selections are spent on WRs and also RBs.

Regard the phenomenon of the third-year wide out– This year’s course is especially piled however the 3rd year has actually always been recognized to be make-or-break year for WRs. Make a list of 5 third-year WRs with something to show this year as well as target them in the middle of the draft.

Depreciate the stock of newbie WRs, value the newbie RB– Simple math, it is less complicated to learn to play the NFL RB placement well than it is for a receiver to go their timing down and adapt to the rate of the NFL. Throw in a bad QB and also a phenom WR could be made useless. At the same time starting RBs are going down like flies and also flourish your rookie RB is obtaining 20 touches a video game.

Adhere to reasoning the very first five rounds– Don’t obtain charming. Find the individuals which will make. Begin making your huge reaches in the sixth round as well as beyond. By the 10th round one-half your league is preparing the following guy on the list. Go locate some upside further down on the spiritual “pre-season positions” list and be your own Matthew Berry.

You’ve heard it 100 times but never take a twist prior to round 15— I will not birthed you with the reasons however felt confident that if you do pick a kicker before then the entire organization recognizes you are a jackass which won’t be paying attention after week four.

Watch college football– You do not have to be Mel Kiper, Jr., yet understanding exactly what type of runner Bishop Sankey was just in 2012 is useful info you can make use of while your commissioner is still laughing regarding the person’s name.


PODCAST: Prepare Now for 2020 NFL Fantasy Football Drafts!

Exclusive Report: FF-Winners Top 10 Draft Choices for Fantasy Football 2020-21

It is almost the end of February 2020 with the Super bowl having been concluded a few weeks ago. And yet different news stories of the 2020 NFL season are already heating up. With Drew Brees announcing another year with the Saints and the uncertainty surrounding where Tom Brady is going to end up, the discussion around the NFL leagues will continue to go on. Then there is the NFL 2020 draft which is just 8 weeks away! Having said that, there is no better way to start your fantasy football season as soon as possible. Whether you are going to start a dynasty league or going to participate in a casual PPR or standard leagues, it is always a good idea to prepare yourself for the upcoming season.2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy NFL Forecasting Player News  winners report football fantasy exclusive draft choices

We have researched the top 10 NFL fantasy football draft players which will surely make a huge impact in the upcoming season. The position of the pick is based on the player’s past performance and the circumstances of the upcoming season. We have done scientific research before listing these players however, still, they may change depending on the situation as it did with Antonio Brown in 2019. But for now here are our top 10 players for the 2020 Fantasy Football season.

1. Christian McCaffrey, RB, (Carolina Panthers)

No surprises there at all. McCaffrey’s work ethics and his workload have made him a huge name in the past year. In 2019 Christian McCaffrey made 287 rushing attempts for 1387 yard and he scored a staggering 15 rushing TD’s. To make this even more terrific, McCaffrey also caught 116 passes for 1005 yards while catching 4 passes in the end zone taking his total TD tally to 19.

Now the biggest question going into the 2020 season will be whether McCaffrey will be given the same workload. And the answer to a question like that would be with a guy like McCaffrey, WHY NOT? Matt Rhule is a pro RB coach who has done well in his college coaching years. So, we have little fear that McCaffrey stats in 2020 will dwindle.

2. Ezekiel Elliot, RB, (Dallas Cowboys)

Most people may not agree with us putting Ezekiel at number 2 but the thing about him is that he never disappoints. He has continued to put up numbers year after year. In fantasy football, consistency is the key if you want to win. Sure enough, Ezekiel numbers were down from the 2018 season but still, he rushed for 1,357 yards in 301 carries and scored 12 times through the ground. You have to get McCaffrey if you are number 1 in draft order otherwise Ezekiel Elliot is the safest option afterward who will continue to shine in 2020.

3. Michael Thomas, WR, (New Orleans Saints)

Michael Thomas is perhaps the safest bet in terms of the wide receiver ever since Calvin Johnson retired – that is the reason Michael Thomas is on number 3 on my list. When Drew Brees got injured there was a huge concern about Michael’s production, however, not only the backup QB Teddy Bridgewater played brilliantly but Michael’s targets were never down. He continued to be a workhorse.

Michael Thomas has a rare talent with the right amount of size, strength and speed with safe hands (just like Calvin Johnson). With Drew Brees announcing another year with the Saints, Michael Thomas will be again the center of Brees’s attention in this upcoming season.

4. Saquon Barkley, RB, (New York Giants)

Admittedly, Saquon’s 2019 season was a bit disappointing but a high ankle sprain in a running back is just a killer. However, Saquon’s potential cannot be denied in any way.  We think that with Daniel Jones returning as NY Giants QB, the coach Joe Judge may make the necessary changes to build an offense similar to the Ravens which will create immediate value for not only Jones but it will boost up the offensive value of Saquon Barkley. Going into the 2020 season, we are placing Saquon on number 4 on our list.

5. Dalvin Cook, RB, (Minnesota Vikings)

In 2019, Cook’s start was nothing short of a dream start. In his first 7 games of the 2019 season, Cook had 5 games where he rushed for 100 yards or more. In the 8th game, he rushed for 98 yards. Kirk Cousins’s presence has been a blessing for Cook and Minnesota’s read-option worked really well.We think this year will be the best year for Dalvin Cook and he will be a definite top 5 fantasy player.

6. Nick Chubb, RB, (Cleveland Browns)

When you talk about workhorse you have to mention Nick Chubb no matter what. Chubb ran for 1494 yards in 298 carries with an impressive average of 5.0. He had 8 games where he carried the ball 20 times or more. Expect him to be the best offensive player for the Browns in the 2020 season. Chubb is definitely a safe and best draft pick at number 6.

7. Alvin Kamara, RB, (New Orleans Saints)

Alvin Kamara had a down season in 2019 but most of it can be blamed on his high ankle sprain. Sean Peyton has been known to play it safe and I think that’s why Alvin Kamara was not given a green light when It came to big plays. Expect Kamara to be back in 2020 with full swing and if you want a player closer to McCaffrey then, of course, look no further than Kamara.

8. Derrick Henry, RB, (Tennessee Titans)

Derrick Henry was a total beast in 2019. He carried his whole team on his shoulders to the AFC championship game. He gave the word “Workhorse” a whole new meaning in the 2019 season. He scored 16 rushing touchdowns and led the league in rushing with 1540 yards with an amazing 5.1 YPA. Expect Mike Vrabel to give Henry a good workload in 2020 as well.

9. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, (Houston Texans)

DeAndre Hopkins will have a great season in 2020. Part of Hopkins’s success can be credited to the starting quarterback DeShaun Watson who keeps getting better best every year and is expected to perform at his best in the 2020 season. In our  opinion in 2020 Watson-Hopkins will be one of the best QB-WR connections.

10. Tyreek Hill, WR, (Kansas City Chiefs)

Speedster Tyreek Hill had a low fantasy season but he made up most of it in the postseason. We should expect the same performance in the 2020 season. Let’s face it, no one can become open and create a gap as Hill does and that’s why there are certain plays in Andy Reid’s play-book that have been specifically designed for Hill. Expect Chief’s star QB Mahomes to throw to Hill’s way in the upcoming season. He will remain a very important offensive weapon in the 2020 season.

Be Creative With Your Fantasy Football League

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fandom Fantasy Football Strategy  league football fantasy creative

If you can rattle off football stats faster than you can remember your mom’s birthday, there’s probably some kind of statistical probability that you are involved with a fantasy football league. They’re fun and interactive, aren’t they?

The Winnetka, Illinois-based FX comedy show “The League,” features six salt-of-the-earth football fans who take their fantasy football league to the extreme. Trying to incorporate some of their more outlandish antics and shenanigans into your team’s extracurricular gatherings is entirely up to you, of course. But hey, coming up with your own Shiva-esque trophy is one place to start.

Your entire team should keep up with all the stats, facts and games with “NFL Sunday Ticket” for this coming season. For those with players on out-of-market teams for your viewing area, you can all keep tabs throughout the entire day. Once you have your viewing schedule all mapped out, it’s time to start coming up with your own shenanigans to keep things interesting for the team.

Choose a Name for Your Team

Creating a team identity is a great way to have fun with puns and use your imagination. Sometimes fantasy football players choose names based on favorite players or teams. You can also draw inspiration from a group joke or something you remember from a previous game. One notable mention from Fan Duel Insider is “Forgetting Brandon Marshall,” inspired by the Chicago Bears wide receiver. Another classic name is the “Bradshawshank Redemption.”

Roast Your Fellow League Players

Not with actual fire, of course — use your word fire. Plan an evening involving a decadent vice or two. Beer, perhaps? Maybe you can all have a cookout leading up to a critical game and do some serious, yet well-organized, trash talking. With this event, choose an emcee that you all agree will keep the event fun and lively.

Go to Some Games Together

This one seems obvious, but sometimes working on the logistics can be tricky since cost and everyone’s respective schedules could be mitigating factors. At the very least, put it on the table for everyone to discuss.

Sour the Pot

Personal bets that don’t involve cash usually carry far more weight and laughs in the end for the person who loses. The gang on “The League” came up with some over-the-top wagers, so see what you can all come up with. One idea is for the loser (the “Sacko” equivalent from “The League”) to be required to sing a different embarrassing song in a restaurant, once a month. The crooner has to perform the song on command from the rest of the team.


CONFIDENTIAL FILE EXPOSED: Top 3 Picks for 2016 NFL Fantasy Drafts (archival article)

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Player News  picks fantasy exposed drafts confidential

2016 may represent a changing of the guard, when it comes to the first overall pick in standard scoring fantasy football leagues. Previously, especially in leagues that didn’t incorporate any points per reception component, it was a foregone conclusion that you’d take the best running back in the league. Over the last decade, guys like Priest Holmes, LaDainian Tomlinson, and Adrian Peterson were almost always off the board by the second overall pick. Sure, there would be the odd year when Peyton Manning or Tom Brady or Aaron Rodgers would enter the consideration set, but the ability to capitalize on the rushing yards, rushing touchdowns, and receiving yards and touchdowns that the elite franchise running backs produced was just too much to pass up.

So with this changing of the guard, who enters the 2016 season as the top overall picks? Here’s are the 

Antonio Brown, WR, Pittsburgh Steelers —  Brown may be the singularly most dominant wide receiver in fantasy football (and football in general) since Randy Moss.  In 2014, he lead the league receptions, receiving yards, and passes caught for a first down. He averaged over 100 receiving yards per game, and almost one touchdown per game (he had 13). How did he follow that up in 2015? By again leading the league in receptions and receiving yards, exceeding both totals from 2014. His 136 receptions was the second highest total in NFL history, and his 1,834 yards was the 4th highest total in NFL history. Few players have shown that type of year-over-year consistency, in terms of re-writing NFL standards for their position. With Ben Roethlisberger throwing the football as well as any quarterback in the league, and with the suspension of Martavis Bryant opposite Brown (meaning the Steelers will likely have to continue to force targets in Brown’s direction), there’s no reason to see those statistics dropping.

Todd Gurley, RB, Los Angeles Rams — at this point last year, there were legitimate questions as to whether Gurley would even play in the 2015 season for the team that drafted him; he suffered a torn ACL injury in November while playing his last season for the University of Georgia. The Rams tried to bring him along slowly, not rushing him into immediate action when the season began.  It started with just a few spot carries in an ugly game against the Steelers; Gurley had a paltry nine rushing yards on six carries (and one reception for five yards). From there? Everything changed. Over the next four games, Gurley ripped off 566 rushing yards and four touchdowns, drawing rave reviews from the rest of the league for his startling combination of vision, size, and speed. Despite really only playing in 12 games last year, Gurley finished third in the NFL with 1,106 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns (the latter tied for second best in the NFL). Who knows what a full season of carries, and an improvement at the quarterback position — assuming the Rams select a quarterback with the #1 overall pick — could bring.

Le’Veon Bell, RB, Pittsburgh Steelers — Once Bell returned from his two game suspension to start the 2015 season, the conversation began as to whether he emerged as the best running back in the NFL. His ability as a runner and a receiver began to draw comparisons to Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk. In the five games prior to the early November matchup against Cincinnati, when he suffered his season-ending knee injury, Bell recorded over 125 combined yards in four of those five games. He remains one of the true “bell cow” running backs in the NFL, but the biggest question around Bell will be whether he will be fully healthy when the 2016 season begins, after his offseason surgery to fix the damaged MCL/PCL in his knee.


Boost Your FANTASY FOOTBALL STRATEGY With These Tips

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy Football Football games  winning strategy football fantasy

(from sporting news.com:)

Basics (If you’ve played for a few years, feel free to skip this section)

1. Knowledge is power. You HAVE to know your league’s settings. This is non-negotiable. Know what positions are required (2 QBs? 3 flex? No flex?), know how the scoring is broken down,  know if bonus points are awarded, etc. You can throw a wrench into your season from the very beginning by not understanding your league’s settings.

2. Do your research. You don’t need to know who has what assignment on an A-gap overload zone blitz (is that even a real thing?), but it’s important to know who the starting running back and receivers are for the Jaguars, who some of the backups are in Dallas and Philadelphia, and so on.

3. Personal touch. Make your own rankings. Yahoo!, ESPN, CBS, etc. are all going to have their own set of rankings, but yours may look a lot different — especially when you move beyond the top 30-40 or so. Your rankings will reflect your research and your strategy and will help you have an easier time during the draft.

4. Patience is a virtue. Don’t be the person who jumps on a kicker or defense a round or three too early. Not only will you announce yourself as fresh meat, but you could significantly lower your team’s ceiling.

5. Fantasy football “fitbit”. Everyone wants to get his and her steps these days. Use that same mentality in fantasy football. Be active on the wire, consume information, start players who are actually starting on game day. You’ll be surprised what simply being an active owner can do for you even if you had a lackluster draft.

Advanced

1. Pitch selection. One of the most basic things you’ll hear someone say regarding draft strategy is “get as much value as possible”. That’s certainly true, but “value” is such a fluid concept in a draft. At any point, the best value may be that boring, steady vet with the established ceiling and high floor. Sometimes it’s the flashy young player with high risk but an even higher ceiling. The key is knowing when to simply move the chains and when to toss the Hail Mary. Whatever you do, try to avoid “throwaway picks”. That’s not the official term, but you know it when you see it. “Oh, it’s the 12th round, Trent Richardson and his 3.3 yards per carry will come in handy at some point, right?” No! Even late in the draft, you want to avoid wasting picks on players that you know won’t give you anything. If you’re going to take a zero anyway, you might as well swing for the fences.

2. “Last man standing. In this day of specialization and committees, it can be difficult to sort through backfield pecking orders. It’s one thing if you know that Player A is going to handle early-down work and give way in passing situations or if Player B is a goal-line specialist, but how do you handle a situation like Cleveland or Dallas where multiple backs with similar skillsets are going to be battling for carries? Instead of guessing, just wait and pluck the second or third guy in the competition. Not only are you getting him at a cheaper price, but chances are solid that you’ll end up with the top option. You can also avoid these murky situations altogether, but it’s getting increasingly more difficult to build a team without dipping into these muddled competitions.

3. Stacking. While you shouldn’t necessarily set out to draft excess depth at a position or a number of players with the same bye, you shouldn’t be afraid to build on it if that’s how your draft has unfolded. Quality depth is never a bad thing, and you can usually trade from a surplus. As far as byes are concerned, I’ll reiterate that you shouldn’t go out of your way to have all of your players on one bye week, but sacrificing one automatic loss in exchange for a higher chance at a win in several other weeks isn’t an awful trade.

Winning Fantasy Football Behavior

2020-21 NFL Computer Predictions and Rankings Fantasy Football Strategy  football fantasy

With the NFL regular season starting a week from Thursday, this weekend  will play host to hundreds of Fantasy Football drafts. These events are the first step to your ultimate glory, however points can easily be lost if you are off your game. Like any other social gathering, there are numerous fakes and conterfakes you need to navigate during your dream draft. The following pointers should  assist you to begin your season on the right foot!

PRE-DRAFT

Do: Brings snacks. Adhere to the standards like chips, crackers and also … that variety that has both chips AND crackers.

Do not: Bring tossed salad. You do not win games with tossed salad!

Do: Respect an additional owner’s personal privacy.

Don’t: Hound an individual about their strategy, or attempt as well to peek at their positions just before the draft. This reeks of anxiety.

Do: Research several degrees of possible draft picks, consisting of studs, sleepers as well as deep sleepers.

Do not: Research only the top 5 rated players in each position. You will certainly not get them all (and if you do, leave your league. The other owners are TOO dumb).

Do: Think about your other fantasy leagues and prospective distinctions in your draft strategy.

Don’t: Talk about your other fantasy leagues. It’s a technically proven fact that the only folks that love a fantasy football league are those that are participating in it!

DURING DRAFT

Do: Have a number of options prepared to pick from prior to when you are “on the clock”.

Do not: Waste time humming as well as hawing over which player  to take. Nobody  will  be thrilled with the amount of thought you’re putting into it.

Do: Accept that if you would like to draft a player, odds are an additional owner does also.

Do not: Angrily yell every time somebody you desired gets selected. You can not draft everyone (unless it’s a one team league, which would be quite… sad!).

Do: Applaud an excellent pick from another  owner.

Don’t: Make ironical remarks or criticize each and every selection that isn’t  yours. Keep in mind, this is supposed to be enjoyable (and you will have to patronize these people throughout the season).

Do: Pay attention to which players have been drafted.

Do not: Take numerous minutes to select a player that was available the previous round. You will certainly be laughed at, and you will deserve it.

Do: Take a couple of opportunities on some lower recognized players you “vibe on”. If it pays off, you’ll feel incredible (even if they’re the only great player on your team).

Don’t: Draft any individual on the Miami Dolphins. (Just joking).

POST DRAFT

Do: Relax. Your team is picked, exactly what’s done is done and also re-thinking every choice will get you nowhere.

Do not: Drop players as quickly as you get home. Playing with the lineup ought to wait up until at,the very least, one game has been played!

Do:   Know in your mind that “I will win this league!

Don’t: Say so out loud!
