Daily Fantasy Football Team - How To Build Them


  • Daily Fantasy Football Team - How To Build Them

    Every year, thousands upon thousands ofpeople embark on the annual pilgrimageknown as "The Fantasy Football Draft".Whether it is daily fantasy football orseason long football, the most importantpart of it is the drafting. You get to be thecoach, general manager, and team owner allby yourself. There are many thoughts andviewpoints about how to go about selectinga successful fantasy football team, but Iwant to give you some tips to maximizeyour success.

    1. One of the most important measures is to start off by studying pre-draft guides which arebetter known as "Strategy guides or Cheat Sheets". Cheat sheets will assist you to break downthe approaching draft beforehand and set up your picks in advance. They also make it easier toprevent you from "spontaneity" selections. Begin your research long before the draft. There are amultitudes of online resources to read, and beginning your research ahead of time will save youthe difficulty of getting bombarded with the irritating preseason/ pre-draft hoopla that oftenblows up about unproven or rookie players during the days running up to most fantasy drafts.

    2. You would be well advised to participate in Mock Drafts. Almost all fantasy sports sites havemock drafts. Make use of it well and learn from your mistakes and success.

    3. An additional suggestion is to build your team around a solid core of running backs. RBs arethought to be the most crucial position in daily fantasy football, and generally gain the majorityof points for a fantasy football league team. The majority of the expert Fantasy Football playersbelieve that taking running backs first is the most important point in drafting a great team. Mostsuccessful team owners love to draft at least three starting RB. The reasoning behind the this ideais that basically a star running back frequently supplies a great deal more worth during the courseof a season than a mid-level running back, particularly when compared against other popularpositions.

    4. Refrain from taking quarterbacks too quickly in your fantasy football draft. Take them in themidway portion of your selected draft and save the kickers and defensive units for the final few

  • rounds of a typical draft. Keep from choosing your sleepers (players who fly under the radarprior to the draft) too quickly. Sleeper picks are usually a good bet in the middle to late rounds.

    5. Another good idea is to use a player "handcuff". The basic idea of "a player handcuff" is theselection of the top two players from the same team at a given position that serves to protect thefantasy investment with the starting player. Running backs provide a lot of upside, but areprobably the most injury-prone position in football, so it might be wise to enlist the substitute tothis player in the late rounds.

    6. Please try not to be a "fairweather" owner and quit halfway through a season. I have seen thishappen way too many times. By no longer maintaining you team on the playing field each week,it's possible to adversely impact your Fantasy League's season by altering the balance of teamsand games played. If you stick to the guidelines presented, you will have an advantage over mostof your opponents and will likely enjoy a lot of success in your Fantasy Football League.
