Literally nothing has changed since my fantasy baseball draft in March: wait until the last minute to research players and hope for the best.
The last time I did fantasy football—the one and only time I did it—was in college because my ex had a league. I finished second and beat him, which felt good since he actually played football. I can’t remember what my strategy was but whatever I did must have worked.
I’m so out of the loop when it comes to football because IT’S STILL TECHNICALLY BASEBALL SEASON. Or SZN as the cool kids are saying. #Lit
So my team’s name is All Hail New York Giants, like the scene from Madagascar:
Hey, it worked for me last time!
My strategy for this draft is to do what I did for the baseball one and print out the top X amount of players for each position, and I think you draft less players for football than baseball. (I do remember that you draft mostly all offensive positions and a defensive line as a whole.) I’ll put together a list of two to three players for each position, get my glass of wine ready, and hope for the best. Hopefully I don’t have to work on the night of our draft and thus force the draft to be moved.
I was talking with one of my friends about fantasy football drafts because you know how some leagues make the losers do some crazy things. Thankfully, we’re all not local—that I know of—so we lucked out. (Paul, don’t get any ideas.) He was also no help with drafting tips.
How do you draft for fantasy football? Do you have a strategy or do you just wing it?
