It will be a bit easier to formulate a strategy as the season draws nearer. I would really suggest just finding some fantasy football podcasts in the meantime and listen to them. You will get to know some of the different ways that people look at fantasy football, and since its the off season there will be a lot of discussion about strategy rather than particular players.
As the season draws closer just read some articles, look at mock drafts that people posted, and the most important part for someone new to FF is to do mock drafts. Do as many as you have time for, and switch up your strategy across drafts as much as possible. If you know ahead of time what position you will be drafting in then try to do mock drafts from that position (with the same # of players as your league), to get a good idea of what types of players you will be looking at.
As you do mock drafts you will be able to look at your team and see some things you did that you like and some that you dont. Maybe once its over with you realize that you were just taking the best player available every round but that left you with no real consistent WR. Maybe you start to see a trend where you draft Matt Ryan in the 4th round but someone like Russell Wilson was going in the 8th and you would have been just as happy with him, realizing that you overdrafted the QB position.
Not only will you start to get a feel for where guys are being valued, but you will get a feel for when you want to target certain positions. You will get a feel for when its best to lead the pack in a position and get the best player or when its best to let everyone else use their picks and you get the value players at their position that may not have quite as high of a ceiling. Just as importantly you will start to notice some guys that tend to slip that you may have overlooked, keep notes of these players so you dont overlook them in the draft and you can make other people say "How did i forget about him???"
