Enough with the mock drafting, right? It's time for an actual draft. And as it happens, I took part in a draft Saturday (July 7th) night. Here's the basic breakdown:
- 12-team, PPR, redraft league
- Paid entries and cash prizes
- Public league
- Start 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 RB/WR, 1 TE, 1 DST, 1 K
We are going to break down this draft and see what we can learn. While I will not be reviewing every pick in detail, we will examine each round.
Being that this draft took place in July, I would expect your draft in late-August to look a bit differently. But I've learned over time that you can actually be MORE successful drafting earlier in the summer, provided that you do your homework. So don't be afraid to take the plunge if you feel that you are ready.
NOTE: Teams will be referred to as "Team A", "Team B", "Team C" etc.
