10 Guys You HAVE to Draft 10th Round or Late

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:

  1. Knowing Your League: if you don’t know your scoring, rosters, ability to trade, or waivers then you’ve lost before you begun
  2. 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
  3. 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! Here are 10 guys I absolutely love in the 10th round or later that I’m trying to get on all my squads this season! Continue reading

Confessions of a Fantasy Football Addict

I can feel my stomach just churning and wrapping around itself like I’m on some sort of crazy twisted rollercoaster. I can’t keep my hands still. They drum lightly on the side of my chair; slowly gaining in volume and speed, as I know it’s almost my turn. My legs feel like Jell-O as I stand up. I wipe the last of the sweat dripping down my brow and off the tip of my nose. My mouth opens but my brain doesn’t seem to know to make me speak. It feels like I’m frozen, like I’ve been standing in this pose for hours. I am a human statue. Then the words finally escape past my trembling lips.

“H-h-h-hi, I’m Anthony and I’m … I … I’m addicted to fantasy football.”

One Thing EVERY Fantasy League Needs!

What is the one thing every single fantasy football league needs, and all the successful ones have? That one thing that will keep not only league members, but also the commissioner in check?

A Constitution.

To build the foundation of a long-lasting, prosperous, cohesive, and completely unbiased league, your fantasy football league MUST follow in the same footsteps our forefathers took over 200 years ago. While freedom and the weight of an entire nation is not on your shoulders, if you are your league’s commissioner than you at least know how chaotic and unbalanced a league can become with just one dispute. People take sides. Some will say the ruling was fair, while other parties will disagree and what comes next could be a firestorm of fantasy football hell. The stuff that causes friends to lose touch, family to fight non-stop, and possibly the worst fate of all … the disbanding of your fantasy league.

12 Guys Walk Into a Fantasy Draft …

First off if you’ve never played in a league with a live draft, shame on you. I believe you can’t officially call yourself a true fantasy football player until you are involved in at least one live draft per year, and the more guys that return each year the better because that’s kind of what this list is based on. The cast of characters you can possibly encounter in any fantasy football draft anywhere in the country. Wether you play 14 team IDP in Tacoma or 10 team PPR in Tallahassee, one thing is for sure: live drafting brings out a different side of all of us. When you get into a league that has the same guys in it year after year, not only is it a ton of more fun, but relationships form. Some become friends, like Bryce Wayne and Dick Grayson. Some become enemies like Batman and the Joker. Doesn’t matter what your dynamic is with your league mates, all I know is having those same faces around make the mythology and legend of each of our leagues more special as the years go by. So if you play in a live draft league with the same people year in and year out, then you my friend have definitely ran into at least a few of the following:
