Expert DRAFTing Week 17

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

MAIN SLATE

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.

WEEK 17 - QUICK NEWS AND NOTES

We have finally reached the end of another great season of football as this will mark the final regular season of the year. Picking players this week will be somewhat tricky as only a handful of teams have meaningful games this week and knowing what players will see more action will be even more important this week. This week all 16 games and 32 teams will be on the slate.

The popular high scoring game to target this week is going to be Arizona vs LA Rams (49.0 O/U), Atlanta vs Tampa Bay (48.0), and New Orleans vs Carolina (47.0). Whenever you are in a position to choose between two players you feel have similar upside you might just want to choose the one that is from the highest total on the week as they all seem to ones that will have some high scores and lots of fantasy points from all the star players involved.

The running back and wide receiver depth this week is strong so you might not see as much edge in the smaller sized leagues such as H2H, 3-man, or 4-man. Anything above a 4-man I feel like you can use your rankings and draft skills to give you a nice edge over your competition in Week 16. Even in H2H, 3-man, and 4-man, you will always have others that will just side with DRAFT's projections and you can use that to your advantage.
