We started this ultimate fantasy football blueprint by saying in the first slide fantasy owners need to simplify their materials at the draft table.
Here is a personal secret we are going to let you in on (don't tell my bosses and paycheck-signer): Average draft position is the only tool you need. After spending months analyzing, debating, projecting, reviewing and agonizing over players, as well as watching camps and the preseason, a good, updated ADP list is No. 1 tool this trusty fantasy analyst arms himself with.
Who cares what one man (or woman) thinks? We gave you a B/R mock draft earlier this week. It has been the most read piece of content in B/R's 2014 Fantasy Football Guide. Take it with a grain of salt.
That doesn't give you a representation of how your draft will go. Ah, now analysts consensus rankings and ADP can do that for you.
We like the ADP at FantasyPros.com, because it breaks down each of the major fantasy football draft sites. Every league, every draft and every drafting platform is different, so watch that, but in general the fantasy masses pick the way ADP lines up.
There's your single cheat sheet after consuming all the complexities of B/R's blueprints.
