The Rundown: FantasyScore Week 7

A weekly guide to FantasyScore's Draft-and-Go contests.

Over the past several weeks, I've presented thought experiments and simulations with respect to various draft strategies for FantasyScore's Draft-N-Go (DNG) games. If you can manage to play one of these, here are the basics of what I've found:

  • Only play heads up games, 5-person 2-prize games, and 8-person 3-prize games.
  • If you're assigned the No. 1 pick in any of the above games, use the zero wide receiver strategy; otherwise, don't.
  • In an 8-person, 3-prize game, use the "upside" draft list rather than the "average" draft list.
