Success in fantasy football is about scouting players, teams, and surrounding circumstances and making educated guesses about which player will out-perform initial expectations, and which player will under-perform initial expectations.
Success is about not always getting the best player in the entire league, but choosing the player with the greatest value as available to complement your team as a whole. Just because you get to draft first and select Adrian Peterson or Arian Foster doesn't determine whether you will win your league. It is about making sound choices on quality value picks that will consistently deliver a return on investment.
Any average Joe could list for you the top picks at every position. Instead, I would submit to you my favorite picks for value: fantasy picks that will out-perform their projections for 2011.
