10 Guys You HAVE to draft 10th Round or Later
To me there are three keys to building and maintaining a successful fantasy football team for the season:
- Knowing Your League: if you don’t know your scoring, rosters, ability to trade, or waivers then you’ve lost before you begun
- Working Waivers: finding players before your competition that will have a lasting impact on the season; not being afraid to be aggressive when need be
- Drafting: be flexible and go with the draft, mocks don’t ever dictate what your real draft will turn out like; also, and more importantly, the ability to draft deep – champions are made in the late round not with your first few picks
Those three steps are all of equal importance but today we are focusing on number three, mainly the use of drafting deep.
Every one knows who they are taking in the first few rounds; the sexy names like Antonio Brown, Ezekiel Elliott, Christian McCaffrey, Julio Jones, etc. However, it’s about drafting deep and finding those gems in the later rounds to really give you depth, have trade bait, fillers for potential injuries to top-tier performers, and guys maybe other players in your league won’t be as focused on. So let your competition take their kicker and defense early, let them start trying to get cute by snatching up useless handcuffs, let them think after the first 7 or 8 rounds they can mail it in because you know how important it is to draft until the very end!
