Justin Bonnema wrote a great piece about who to take if you have pick 1.01. In that article, he lays out the pros and cons of each of the top selections. But once that’s done, you have to watch 22 other players go off the board before you pick again. If you have the No. 1 overall pick, who you take with your second and third picks will set the tone for your entire draft. Here are a couple of different ideas on how to build around your team around your first-round pick.
Spotting the Trend
One of the keys to a successful fantasy draft is spotting the players who have the best value based on their draft position. But when you’re drafting at the end of one round and the beginning of another (on the turn), if you only take the best available players each time you are up, you could end up with great depth at certain positions and consistently lose because of how weak you are at other positions. When drafting on the turn, you have to look at the players who were taken by the other GMs and try to anticipate where the draft is going. If you can spot the trend, you can control the draft.
