Beginner's Guide to Fantasy Football, Part 5: Draft Prep and Footballguys Tools

Our beginner's series highlights some of the site's tools to help fantasy football team owners succeed

A lot goes into draft prep. Luckily, there's a tool here for every job. Footballguys has built a suite of tools and applications that continues to evolve and improve every single year. These tools are invaluable in helping you prepare for your draft. We at Footballguys use these tools ourselves because of how valuable they are.

Preparing for your draft is a comprehensive affair. Don't be that person who buys a dated fantasy magazine three hours before your draft. Though our fine friends who publish those magazines do a great job -- and even feature Footballguys sometimes -- it takes more than flipping through sometimes months-old information to properly prepare. Using Footballguys tools will help you get to where you need to be by the time you sit down to draft.


You can always create your own set of player rankings, but that can be a time-consuming effort. Luckily, Footballguys has you covered. Our expert staff compiles and curates player rankings right here. You can sort through your favorite expert’s rankings or look at a conglomeration of our expert opinions. This may be the single biggest pre-draft time-saver on the web.


For many of our experts, their rankings are based on offensive projections. Combining mathematical wizardry, past precedent, projected roles, and a host of other factors, Footballguys experts cultivate a set of projections for each team and individual offensive player in the league. The projections are updated as needed, usually when fresh information about a team or player comes out. Our expert projections can help you determine the value each player will have for your team, particularly during the draft. If you have come up with your own rankings, you can take these numbers and adjust those rankings based on your own research and intuition.
