An Expert's Cheat Sheet to Dominating Fantasy Drafts

Fantasy experts may tell you a certain draft strategy is gospel and will win you more leagues than not, but the truth is, fantasy football is fluid and you should adapt your draft strategy to the specific league, scoring format and fantasy platform you play on. To have a great fantasy draft, you need to be willing to move on or off a certain strategy at will and you need to do your research on the players available at their respective ADP. Who has the time to do that for their league, though? Most of you don't, which is exactly why I've used 4for4's rankings and our awesome ADP Bargains tool to compile an expert's cheat sheet for fantasy drafts on the fantasy platform.

One of the most important aspects of drafting in your home or work league is to know your league mates like the back of your hand. That guy from IT who takes a defense in the third round every year because he "might as well get the best one" is the type of tendency you want to remember before your draft. Identify the people who might snipe you on picks, who is going to make the "homer" picks, etc. This alone will allow you to scoop up some massive values in your drafts this season.

The standard fantasy football league features PPR scoring and has a starting lineup of one QB, two RBs, two WRs, one TE, one FLEX, one Kicker and one D/ST. Keeping these settings in mind, let's dive right into some tips to help you dominate your competition.
