Well, for the first 5 rounds I do positions, then the rounds after I do a mix of value and best available, as they are practically the same thing...when i get to late late rounds i of course go by position to make sure i got a K and DEF
For the 1st 3 or 4 rounds I go by the best player available. The next couple of rounds I fill in the positions that need to be, not te,k, or def, it jus all depends whos there. Tight Ends you barely get any points unless u get Gonzo n maybe 2 or 3 others. Those rounds are by position n best avaiable a combo. And the last 2 to 4 rounds i get a kicker,te, and a def or another 1.
Last year I went with the good 'ol two RB in the first two rounds strategy. That worked well.
I'd like to try a few mocks to see how the best player available strategy works. It worked well in the few baseball and basketball drafts I participated in and I'd like to see how it translates to football.

I don't have a set strategy, per se. I'll usually end up taking the best player, but it's not always the case. If a top QB is available late 2nd, early 3rd, I'll still probably take a WR or RB, depending on who I took and who is available. I guess it's kind of best player available according to positional values...
Dammit, I have trouble putting my draft strategy into words, but it works on draft day, and that's what counts, right?
Well, I also go by best available player in the early rounds, but I play in a rather odd league where we can start 3 RB's because of a WR/RB flex. If I have a chance at getting Ahman Green, Edge James, and Fred Taylor, I should take it right? The rest of my team looks weak because I use my first 3 picks on RB. Should I use this strategy or should I go by position and get Ahman and Edge and then get a top WR in the 3rd?
If your in a league where you start 3 rbs, then for thest 1st 3 rounds I would pick a rb. If not atleast the 1st two rounds and if only Moss,Holt,Harrison,Owens then pick another rb as there be alot of wr sleepers this year.
In 3 RB leagues, looks can be very deceiving. By using your first 3 picks on RBs (and assuming others didn't and got some WRs or QBs), the rest of your team may look less well-rounded than others, but 3 very strong RBs can win you the league.
In my league, we play up to 4 RBs, so last year, I took 2 RBs, then a WR (Moss). I always take RB first, but after that, I go by best available between RBs and WRs. I tend to lean towards RBs, though. After getting Hass in round 7 last year, I learn to take a QB late. Always shore up RB first, then go after the rest.

I had LT, Jamal Lewis and Fred Taylor in a 3 RB league last year and still couldn't win.
