Fantasy how-to: Draft strategies

By Dave Richard
NFL.com

(July 8, 2004) -- What to do, what to do? It's the first round of your league's fantasy draft, and you're up. The rest of the league waits with baited breath while you try to figure out who you should pick. There's that sure-fire running back you hoped would be there, but then again that receiver who scores all those touchdowns is also available. The clock's ticking -- are you blanking out, or are you ready to go with the name of the man you want to build your team around?

Alright, it doesn't sound very exciting when you read it, but when you're actually there faced with your first pick, your heart might be racing.

Hopefully you're ready to pull the trigger on a player (or a trade). But in case you aren't 100 percent sure what you want to do with your fantasy draft, we're here to help with a few suggestions. Each one is a fantasy strategy that has been tried again and again -- some successful, others not as successful.

But one caveat from the get-go: Blowing off a fantasy gameplan prior to your draft is a big mistake. I've played with a guy in a league for years who looks at a few names before the draft and says he's ready. He's never had a winning record or sniffed the playoffs. It won't hurt you to spend a little free time getting ready for your draft, especially if winning your league means something to you (and why wouldn't it?)

Here are some strategies used on draft day:

Fantasy how-to: Draft strategies

Here\'s what NOT to do:

My first year playing, maybe 2002 i think, I drafted Brooks, Horn, Deuce, Carney, MLewis, and Saints D.

Boy, the offense did great that year, but choosing the same people from the same team, BIG MISTAKE.

Oh well, came back last year and won my superbowl (Deuce at running back)
