Players to Target in Draft (Week 2)
Draft Rules & Strategy
When playing on Draft.com you can enter a contest where you play against one other person or up to as many as nine others for the week. If you enter a tournament there can be up to 1,000 people in your contest, but you are only playing against one other person each week. Almost like a survivor pool. If you win your head-to-head matchup, you move on to the next week. You will draft a new team the following week and may not see a payout until Week 11 of the season.
The strategy here is simple. Take the best players available, but come into the draft with some targets. Have some rankings and have an idea of who you want to select. The rankings and projections on Draft may throw you off slightly. Some players you think are in for a big day may be buried down the list.
It’s a snake draft much like your standard Fantasy Football league. Scoring is four points for a passing touchdown and half a point per reception. You draft one quarterback, two running backs and two flex spots. In the flex spot you can roster two wide receivers or two tight ends, or one of each. Go with the wideouts. With a smaller group of contests, you can certainly wait it out at the quarterback position. Take care of your running backs as there are only a handful who will touch the ball 20 plus times a game. It’s all about matchups when looking at wide receivers. Keep it safe and don’t take a lot of risks.
This is the second highest total on the board and both of these quarterbacks played each other three games ago in the NFC Championship game and they combined for eight total touchdowns and over 700 passing yards. I prefer Ryan over Rodgers, but you can’t go wrong with either. These two teams combined for 65 points in that game. The Saints and Patriots total is a bit higher at 56, and you also can’t go wrong with either of those quarterbacks as well.
