The first few rounds of a fantasy football draft are somewhat overlooked in favor of predicting who the late round sleepers are going to be. Obviously finding the next Arian Foster can help propel a team to a championship, but only if the fantasy owner doesn't blow it earlier in the draft.
Wasting an early pick on a player who has a terrible year or misses time due to injury can severely hurt your team's chances of making a playoff run in your fantasy league. Knowing who to avoid and when to make the safer pick can be the difference between a successful draft and a total disaster.
The eight players I've listed are generally being drafted in the first 5 rounds of most fantasy leagues, some of them as high as round 1. All of them are also incredibly risky picks who could easily ruin whatever team they end up on. So take my advice and let the other guys pick these players during your draft. You can thank me when you make the playoffs.
