Expert DRAFTing Week 15

Exploring strategies on beating this week's snake drafts on DRAFT


DRAFT offers weekly snake draft contests with 5-man rosters (1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR/TE) with 0.5-point PPR scoring (the same as FanDuel). There is no salary cap on DRAFT which makes it unique to how you play compared to the other daily fantasy sites. Teams are built through live snake drafts that have 30-second timer per pick. The most common contest sizes are Head-to-Head, 3-Team, 6-Team, and 10-Team.

We will explore both the rankings and draft strategies for each of these four DRAFT sizes. To understand why players are ranked where they are, be sure to check out the overall rankings where I will have in-depth breakdowns of some of the top options and some personal favorites down the list. When developing these rankings we will be excluding the Thursday Night games and only focus on the main slate on DRAFT, the Sunday and Monday games.

If you want to follow me on DRAFT my username is "Eaglezzz" as I sometimes will post contests and would love to play along with fellow Footballguys like yourselves. Please feel free to contact me on Twitter with any questions or if you would like to discuss this article or draft strategies. I welcome constructive feedback on the article and as always best of luck in this week's contests.


The bye weeks are officially over for the season so the next three weeks on DRAFT will be with all teams available to select from except for Thursday and Saturday games that won't be on the main slate. The Thursday night game this week is LA Chargers vs Kansas City and will not be part of this week's discussion on expert DRAFTing. The Saturday games will be Houston at NY Jets and Cleveland at Denver. With no bye weeks to worry about now, the player pool will be larger which will help open up your draft strategy. Another critical area to look at is injuries as the weeks go by and in Week 15 they are starting to pile up. There are a few names to worry about at the running back position this week as James Conner, Rashaad Penny, Kenyan Drake, Matt Breida, LeSean McCoy, Isaiah Crowell, and Kerryon Johnson are either out or questionable. At wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr, Keke Coutee, T.Y. Hilton, Allen Robinson, Quincy Enunwa, Josh Doctson, and DeSean Jackson are the names to keep an eye on. These are all big names to watch as we go into the weekend and with only having to roster five players it makes it hard to draft these guys with comparable options out there. It is almost better to see your opponents selecting these players with the questionable tag as it could give you a slight edge on the week.

The popular high scoring games to target this week are going to be New England at Pittsburgh (52.0 O/U), Philadelphia at LA Rams (52.5 O/U), and New Orleans at Carolina (51.5 O/U).
