Fantasy football draft tips are easy enough to come by, but that won't stop me from bringing my own unique ones based on the couple actual drafts that I have done. Is two enough to definitively draw conclusions? Not by any valid statistical measure, but it is enough when viewed as the culmination of eight months of fantasy football chatter, mock drafts and fantasy information.
Here are some late-breaking fantasy tips:
RB is not a deep position:
Despite plenty of RBBCs, there isn't a ton of solid feature backs. If you don't get two in your first three picks in deeper leagues (>12 teams), then you will need to take a slew of gambles and hope it is your team that gets those right.
WR is deeper but not that much:
Excellent receivers can be had in the 3rd and 4th rounds with the final ones leaving the board by the 6th.
The talent pool is shallow:
The first two points lead to the third. If all the 'good" RBs and WRs are gone in the first 6 rounds of fantasy football drafts, what is left for the final 10 rounds at those positions? Uncertainty.
By now, everyone knows you're sleepers:
When Dwayne Bowe went 62nd overall in my recent 10-team PPR, I knew there was no sleeper stone left unturned. Nevermind Miami Dolphins WR Ted Ginn Jr. went 92nd overall. With fantasy sports sites having expert mocks, there will be at least one other team in your league who has the same sleeper you do.
