The reason I started this blog was simple. I wanted to help others, that are interested in sports and fantasy, become more knowledgeable through the use of advanced stats and in depth thought processes. I will never tell you how to run your team because YOU are the decision maker. However, this blog will help assist you in your decision making through my rankings, waiver wire watch list, and matchup articles that should be posted every week of the football season. With that being said, here is a simple explanation of my favorite draft strategy this season:
The draft strategy I will be using this season is known as the zero RB. With this strategy, the first 2-4 rounds will be spent selecting elite wide receivers, especially in Point Per Reception formats. By doing this, we eliminate some of the volatility the running back position displayed last season. With the latest news of Le'Veon Bell being suspended 4 games (my #1 RB for the season), I will place even more of an emphasis on this strategy. The league is trending towards the pass, so as fantasy players I feel that we need to transition that way as well. Obviously we still need to select running backs and as I study mock drafts, I notice players such as Matt Jones, Jonathan Stewart, and Latavius Murray continue to go too low. With this strategy, we select the high value running backs and load up on the wide receiver position. I will always wait on QB’s and TE’s because other players tend to over value those positions. I will be perfectly okay if I end up with teams that start Kirk Cousins and Zach Miller this season because I know my receiver position will be absolutely loaded. There are many ways to win fantasy championships, but this will be the angle I take this season.
I would be glad to discuss ideas with anyone. You can reach out to me on Twitter or shoot me an Email. Be on the lookout for my positional rankings that should be coming out this week. Have an awesome weekend.
