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.
WEEK 10 - QUICK NEWS AND NOTES
We are in the middle of bye weeks now and with that comes a condensed player pool as this week Baltimore, Denver, Houston, and Minnesota are all on bye. Excluding those teams takes a dip into the overall player pool and you will have to dig deep at the end of drafts. We also can disregard the Thursday Night game between Carolina and Pittsburgh, and with the four teams on bye as well the positions will be thin when drafting in 10-man leagues. Taking away six teams this week that all have some good options at all the positions will make for a tougher roster construction on DRAFT this week. Another critical area to look at is injuries as the weeks go by and in Week 10 they are starting to pile up. We have big names such as Leonard Fournette, Chris Thompson, Chris Carson, and Giovani Bernard all at running back that are either out already or that have their status up in the air. At wide receiver, we also have some question marks now with A.J. Green, Sammy Watkins, Mike Evans, Doug Baldwin, Mohamed Sanu, Allen Robinson, Jamison Crowder, and Rob Gronkowski. 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 Orleans vs Cincinnati (54.0 O/U), Washington vs Tampa Bay (51.5 O/U), Atlanta vs Cleveland (50.5 O/U), and Seattle vs LA Rams (50.0 O/U). It will be hard to not focus only on the New Orleans vs Cincinnati game as there are so many big-name players in that game and the over/under is one of the highest we have seen all season. 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 one of these five games as they all seem to ones that will have some high scores and lots of fantasy points from all the star players involved.
