Now WHAT?

Postby kennykonif » Tue Aug 31, 2004 3:52 pm

Where do I start to prepare for my draft. I'm obviously a rookie.

12 team league
1QB
2RB
3WR
1TE
1K
1DEF.

Anything that I should do or have before my draft?
Realize RBs are important, and then a good QB. Any tips or hints of who to keep an eye open for in the 3rd or 4th, Was thinking of waiting for M Hasselbeck in the 3rd, while taking 2 RBs in the first 2 rnds.

Draft order not determind yet

That's not a bad strategy. Consider where you draft. Taking RB's is a good idea, but you may be able to wait and take a top WR or QB late in the first round or early in the second. Then traget some of the lesser known backs like Suggs, Brown or Staley.

Keep an eye out for when the TE run begins as well. Sometimes Gonzo goes in the 2nd round. If so, Heap, Gates, Crumpler and Winslow are good options. Your hand may be forced there if the TE's start flying off the board. Shockey's a gamble.

Take Kickers and Defences late, unless you truly feel that Vanderjat or Wilkins is the best player (will get you the most points each week) available. Otherwise wait for the lesser knowns later and get better players early.

Good Luck.

Unless you're in an odd league Moss and maybe Harrison are the only exceptions else go RB. If the TEs start flying off the board watch them fly and smile as you pick up value and grab Graham or someone in the last round of the draft. :-D
