It's here! The biggest draft weekend of the year.
To help you crush your draft, we put together one comprehensive draft guide that summarizes the best tools for your draft.
From sleepers to cheat sheets. Mock drafts to rankings. ADP to mobile apps, it's all here!
Sleepers: The most fun part of a fantasy football draft is hitting on a deep sleeper. Sleepers can be found late in your draft for running backs, quarterbacks, tight ends, and wide receivers.
Mock Draft: Nothing gets you more prepared for your real draft than a mock draft. You can practice drafting at every different position, try different strategies and see where players are being drafted. The best thing to do is to go check out a live mock draft lobby and then later view thousands of mock draft results.
Also, if you haven't heard, Yahoo's default scoring format has changed to half-point PPR. If you want to really be prepared for your Yahoo league, you can read up on our expert review of a mock draft for half-point PPR leagues.
Rankings:Based on the data generated from thousands of mock drafts, we have crunched the numbers and determined the optimal rankings for each format. Whether it's top 200 PPR Rankings, Quarterback rankings, Running back PPR rankings, Wide receiver PPR rankings or Tight end PPR rankings.
However, if you truly want to have an edge in your draft, you should find a tool that customizes your rankings based on your league settings.
Cheat Sheets &Average Draft Position (ADP):No matter what your draft strategy is, you have to know the right time to draft players. If you wait too long, you'll miss out. If you take a player too early, then you're losing value.
That's why it's so important to take a cheat sheet with you to your draft that includes ADP data. Whether or not you decide to customize it is up to you. But you have to make sure that you don't overdraft a player in your draft. Likewise, you need to make sure that you don't wait too long on your sleepers and miss drafting your favorite player.
You can keep up to date with player values by viewing average draft position data.
Mobile App: If you want to draft easily on the go, a mobile app customized for your league is by far the best way to draft. Make sure you get an app tailored for iPhone or Android depending on your phone.
Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned expert, the draft is the most fun time of the year.
The key to success is being prepared and having the tools you need to succeed.
Good luck in your drafts!
