NFL Draft Strategy: 10 Tips For Your Auction Draft

  • There is nothing more fun and more stressful than doing an auction draft regardless of the sport.  Snake drafts are easy, you wait for your turn and pick somebody in your que or you reach for a player you really like.  In any auction you run the risk of blowing your stack too early or leaving money on the table, both sins that can cost you your league before it even starts.  No auction is ever the same and you have to be pragmatic and swim with the current instead of fighting it, but here are some inside trading tips to help you get a leg up on your friends and enemies over the  grueling 17-week fantasy football season.

    Know Your league settings

    Say it again for the people in the back.  Know your league settings, especially if it’s a new league.  Is it PPR, half PPR, are rushing TDs worth more than receiving TDs? Are there bonus points for reaching 100 yards rushing, 150 yards receiving.  How can you dominate something if you don’t know it?  Almost all leagues are different and it’s those differences that give great fantasy GMs the extra edges they need to come out on top. 

    Is it 3WR, 2RB, 1TE or 2WR, 2RB, 1 TE and a flex because if its only 2WR then WRs aren’t nearly as important because it’s the position with the most abundancy and the most consistency.  The only thing worse than having one great WR in a two WR league is having four great ones and only being able to start two.
