Tips to Help You Ace Any Fantasy Football Draft

Jose Abreu goes hitless in weekend series. It would be a shame if you eschewed the chance of adding one because you felt you already had too many players at that same position. It's time to set your fantasy lineups for the first time this season. Round 7 - Draft a running back, wide receiver or tight end: Fantasy News

So if you are in the market Monday Night Football Preview: This time around sees 2 teams eager to make up for heartbreaking losses on Monday Night Football when the Seahawks fly into Soldier Field to Our tiered defense rankings are your guide to drafting defenses, making waiver wire Rankings , Waiver Wire Posted By: We've got players being thrust into the spotlight due to injuries and sheer force of will -- some are new names, some very familiar Sunday Night Football Week 2.

Sunday Night Football Week 2 Last week I started a series where I use advanced expert projections to decideif those expert fantasy football projections can predict winners regarding game lines and player prop bets. Here are three teams that could use his services this season. The Cleveland Browns looked to have a once-in-a-lifetime wide receiver in Josh Gordon.

He led the league with 1, receiving Week 2 Live Blog. New England Patriots Posted By: Rankings , Transactions Posted By: Draft Strategy Posted By: That is good news for all daily fantasy players.

In Week 1 of the NFL season, there were some unexpected outcomes and some expected craziness. For fantasy players, that is a double-edge These DraftKings Week 2 Ownership projections are based on social trends, pricing, injury reports, match-ups and so on. Projections , Injuries Players: Alfred Morris totals 80 yards in Week 2. Evan Engram scores a touchdown in loss to the Cowboys. Saquon Barkley has 28 yards rushing and 80 yards receiving in loss.

Jared Cook comes back to Earth versus Denver. Amari Cooper has yard game versus Broncos. Marshawn Lynch finds the end zone for Oakland. David Johnson underutilized in Week 2 loss. Philip Lindsay breaks yard run in Denver win. As for Mahomes, look at it this way: However, with Travis Kelce , Tyreek Hill —the latter of whom created some easy long throws when he ran straight past an opposing defense—and one of the best offensive lines in football, Smith threw for 4, yards and 26 TDs.

Mahomes will never be considered conservative. Have a Plan B in place, but Mahomes has the potential to put up something in the neighborhood of 4, yards and 35 TDs this year. Similarly but also not really the same: With tight ends, if you can get Gronkowski or Travis Kelce in the third or even the late second, go for it.

And if you manage to miss on those three as well, go Eric Ebron. The Lions stopped playing him because of his outright refusal to block anyone, anywhere, ever.

Hilton , plus getting to catch passes from Andrew Luck, Ebron actually becomes an interesting fellow, even with the continued existence of Jack Doyle. Also, just to be clear, earlier in this section I was referring to Rob Gronkowski. Or any of the retired Gronkowskis. Insist that your friends get together at your place for the draft.

Entice everyone to come over with the promise of free pizza and beer. Then, once the draft starts, take out a fresh slice and slap another participant across the face with it, blinding them with scalding hot grease. Or, that beer you promised? Don't let on that you've boiled it to degrees and plan on showering it upon your friends-turned-hated opponents. Remember, almost anything in your home can be turned into a weapon. So I guess maybe just have everyone stay in their individual homes and draft online.

Unless you enjoy the company of others. Everything you need to get ready for fantasy draft season, from rankings to sleepers to the SI mock draft. This is the year though. The Ryan Tannehill - Jarvis Landry romance that once captured our hearts is over, and Parker is the new go-to guy in Miami.

Adam Gase is getting into Parker as a screen game weapon, because Parker is a physical, no-nonsense runner after the catch. I think Parker ends up leading Miami in catches and yards. If he can squeeze out eight TDs along the way and at his size, he should be a bigger red-zone factor , baby you've got a stew going. This is how you construct a fantasy football season schedule: Fantasy regular season is the NFL regular season, Weeks 1 through After 16 games everyone has a game record, just like the teams in real life!

No keepers, regular season-to-playoffs or playoff round-to-playoff round. The playoff schedule is as follows:. Oh, God forbid you open a spreadsheet, you baby.

Anyway, sorry for calling you a goober. People are making fun of you behind your back because your fantasy football playoffs are stupid. You should probably avoid the Patriots backfield altogether, but it's tough to ignore that offense and Burkhead has the highest upside as the most well-rounded back in New England.

Davante Adams is the clear-cut No. And as for outside the 20, Graham spent the last couple seasons playing with the second-best improv QB in football in Russell Wilson. Now he gets to play with the best. Austin Ekeler and Tarik Cohen: And Philip Rivers is as good as any quarterback in football at getting to his checkdown quickly and giving that back a chance to create. While Jordan Howard is a far superior runner, new head coach Matt Nagy surely prefers a back who can be a factor in the passing game.

If Cordy Glenn and Billy Price provide a legitimate upgrade up front, Mixon is a top fantasy value. Though it seems everyone loves him now. McKinnon is a perfect fit in a Kyle Shanahan offense.

Durability might be the only question. He was my favorite NFL draft sleeper last spring. Wilkins had an abbreviated career at Ole Miss because of academic problems, so he comes into the league with plenty of juice left in his legs, and he needed only touches to put up 1, yards from scrimmage in the SEC last season, he had yards over 21 career carries—7. This is your version of Alex Collins who I told you about this time last year.

Make Wilkins your last pick if you can. Three late-round tight ends. Or at least try not to. You can if you really want to. When I order a meal I don't ask someone else to chew it for me. Also, lineup questions usually require going onto Twitter, and that place is the worst.
