You Should Live by these Daily Fantasy Football Draft Rules
With week 9 of the NFL season in the books, it is time for fantasy football players to turn their attention to week 10.
If you haven’t had much success during the 2015 season, it may be time to change your approach. For example, you can improve your situation by seeking out high performing sleepers that others are overlooking.
As you consider which players to select for week 10, take a step back to review your approach. Are you giving yourself the best chance of winning? Or are you simply choosing players based on past performance and some basic research?
3 Rules to Guide You
Every fantasy football player has his or her own strategy, but that doesn’t mean there is nothing to learn from others. Below are three rules that can guide the player selection process every week:
- Know the scoring system. If you jump around from one service to the next, you don’t want to overlook the fact that each one is unique in its own way. This could including the scoring system.
If you don’t understand how each player is scored, you can’t make informed drafting decisions.
- Be a stickler for details. Everybody wants to win at fantasy football, but very few take the time necessary to truly understand what each player brings to the table. Why is one quarterback a better choice than another this week? Why is one wide receiver poised for a breakout game while another is likely to fall short of expectations?
A high level of research does not guarantee success, but it does improve your chance of winning.
- Record and track your own data. There is no denying the fact that the internet is full of fantasy football data. From past performance to future predictions to injury reports, you don’t have to look far to find high quality information. But here is the problem: millions of other people have access to the same data.
If you truly want to outperform the competition, create your own system for recording and tracking data. It may be extra work, but it can have a profound impact on the final results.
Fantasy football is more fun when you are winning. By following these three draft rules, you can improve your chance of dominating the competition and turning each Sunday into one you will always remember.
