Draft Question

Postby The Big Stick » Tue Jul 18, 2006 8:30 am

What's up guys I have a couple of questions regarding fantasy football. I have played baseball, basketball and have done really well at them. However, football last year was my first full year playing. I finished fourth but, I didn't feel like I knew what I was doing.
My first question is Roto, H2H or salary cap football. I have played yahoo public leagues.
I prefer H2H because that's what I have been successfully at. However, I am open to trying roto.
Second question is I know going into the draft I need to draft running backs because they earn the most points. BYE weeks how much should I take them into account when drafting. Receivers/Quarterbacks and so forth. I am trying to get as much information as possible prior to drafting. Thanks guys any help will be appreciated.

I prefer H2H.
  • I would start by reading message boards like this one.
  • Then I would look at 5+ sites for player projections/rankings
  • Finally I would locate a tool and perform some mock drafts.

H2H. Roto should be only played in Fantasy Baseball.

I think Bye Weeks are overrated for the most part. But if two guys are even, I'll take the guy who's bye fits better with my team.

Last year, I had Priest, LaMont, and Tiki all out on Week 5. I still won.

Thanks for the res ponce. I am working right now thus, I will look at these sites latter today. I purchase rotoworld's magazine as a draft tool. How do these sites differ from rotoworld.

Typically magazies are outdated by the time the draft comes around. So do not depend solely on one.

I like tools that can simulate mock drafts. You can practice drating and try all the different opproaches such as drafting RBs early, drafting QBs early... After a dozen or so mocks you will be better prepared for the trends and surprises in your real draft. You can't get this prep from a magazine.

I have never thought about that. Thanks great insight. I will check it those sites and see what happens.
