How This Data Was Calculated

To calculate the best strategies for each draft position, first we projected the fantasy points of thousands of teams drafted in our public mock drafts.

Then, we grouped the teams by what position they drafted in rounds 1, 2 and 3 and took the average projected fantasy points per week for each positional strategy.

Finally, we sorted them all by how many projected fantasy points each positional draft strategy is expected to score. The top row in the table above shows the positional strategy expected to score the most fantasy points per week this year.

You can also see how many times people used that strategy in the public mock drafts by looking at the Frequency column in the table.

Note: We don't advocate going into your draft with just one dedicated draft strategy that you feel that you must adhere to. It's always best to be flexible and adapt to what value falls to you in your particular draft. Use this tool as one resource of many in your tool belt on draft day.

Data is based on the past 72 hours of mock drafts. Computer teams are not included.
