It’s that time of year again and draft preparation is critical to having a successful campaign. With so many different draft formats out there, learning the ins and outs of your league scoring format will shape your draft strategy and help you prioritize position needs. Below is a summary of all of my draft articles which go in depth about various components of the draft and methods for getting the most out of your team. While these articles hold a wealth of information, I still want to reiterate one point. Focus on overall points, not on position, trends, or being a homer. Base your research on points and shape your team in a way to build the most even if it means you’re very weak in one area and a stud in several others. Look through the point totals in seasons past to see what players are totaling the most points at the end of the season. Find out if there is talent to go around for everyone or if only a select few make it to an elite level on a yearly basis. Not everything is based on the past, but you will find trends that also predict what other players will join that group of elite players this year and others that will fall out. Good luck in your drafts and don’t forget to sign up to play me in my Fantasy Football League.

Fantasy football season is going to be upon us quicker than you realize, so be sure to subscribe to our feed to receive all of the latest fantasy football news on fantasy football rankings, fantasy football strategy, and fantasy football waiver wire pick-ups. We’re going to start drip-feeding articles in the coming weeks to give you a jump start on the other owners in your league. Without further ado, here’s a few of the easiest to remember, but also most important tips to keep in mind for your fantasy draft.
First, schedule your draft for as close to the regular season kick off as possible. While important in every sport, the likelihood of injuries is even greater in football. As long as you’re on top of your injury reports, then this will most likely be an advantage to you while there’s bound to be a few of the schmucks in your league that are still clueless to the latest injury news.
Next, prepare for your draft based on the scoring categories in your league. Go through everything and see what stat categories are worth the most points and also have the scarcest amount of talent. For instance, you might see that receptions end up being worth a ton of points for players that catch over 60 or 70 balls a year and you notice that only a small handful of tight ends usually meet this level of performance on a consistent basis while there’s 20 or more wide receivers that catch that many balls. Don’t miss out on one of those top level tight ends by selecting a wide receiver when there’s still plenty more WR’s available and only one top level TE left available. While this shouldn’t be the sole factor in determining your draft selections, it should be in the forefront of your mind to ensure your are drafting some of the safest bests to score points in those categories for each roster position.
Lastly, take your time reading through all of our fantasy draft strategy articles. While there will be a ton of 2012 fantasy football draft strategy content coming out from us in the next several months, our current articles will give you a solid foundation on developing a successful fantasy draft strategy to help you navigate your way to a fantasy championship. After all, without a rock solid draft, your chances of going all the way are slim to none. Give yourself an advantage from the beginning.
