2012 Fantasy Football Draft Strategy
For years we espoused RB-RB-WR-RB-QB or some variation but with all the uncertainty at the RB position, Calvin Johnson, Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Cam Newton and Matthew Stafford are now legit 1st round picks.
Furthermore Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski are consensus 2nd round picks, not only because they are the top tight ends but because they can outproduce most wide receivers.
Taking the best player available makes the most sense this year but you want to be mindful of the additions to different teams and changes in philosophy or projected number ones.
In Atlanta fantasy stalwart Roddy White who is currently being drafted as the 3rd receiver off the board in Yahoo drafts is a very good bet to finish behind his teammate Julio Jones in fantasy scoring this season and it is possible he falls out out the WR1 conversation in non PPR leagues.
In another example Wes Welker is bound to lose some fantasy appeal with Brandon Llyod in town to steal targets.
We suggest you create your own cheat sheet as always and eliminate players whose ADP is too high for your liking like Roddy White in Atlanta and Wes Welker in New England.
For those of you with a little cash to spare we suggest signing up for cheatsheetwizard.com where you can create your own cheat sheets, one of your own making and a consensus cheat sheet where you can choose to aggregate your rankings with your choice of over fifty of the top fantasy football minds on the planet.
