Fantasy Football Draft Strategy: 10 Players You Must Draft in 2011

Fantasy drafts are starting to kick into full gear and before you end up drafting another team that just doesn't seem right, take my advice, and you'll have a team that you'll admire and that your fantasy football mates will be jealous of. 

Every year, I find myself looking at guys that last until the later rounds and wondering if it's too good to be true. These are players that fall into that category. All of the following players will be overlooked, undervalued and will make a difference on your fantasy team—that is, if you know how and when to draft them. 

Last year, guys that stood out to me were Arian Foster, Brandon Lloyd and Montario Hardesty. Two of those guys helped me to be successful, but you won't strike gold with every pick and that was the case with Hardesty.

Luckily, most late round picks will be on and off your roster through the season, so don't sweat the late picks too bad. Choose upside over certainty because at that point, your options are limited when it comes to proven talent. 

Fantasy drafts are a constant mental battle of knowing when to take a chance on a player and gauging other teams' interest in your targets. I won't be there by your side to tell you when to pull the trigger, but if you're a solid owner, I'm sure you'll do fine.
