Fantasy Football Draft Strategy: 10 Late Round Boom or Bust Picks to Gamble on

What do you mean you aren't going to draft me?

Most fantasy football teams are built the same. Stud quarterback, solid running backs if not one true stud and a solid wide receiver/tight end combo. Most of that can be completed by the sixth round if done properly. The way fantasy football championships are won are in the late rounds and waiver wires.

Players that were able to draft Arian Foster or Peyton Hillis likely won their league due to the big yardage those guys had on the ground and their ability to find the end zone.

The problem with late round picks is their tendency to be hit or miss. You are leveraging your chances of winning on someone who is a backup, on a terrible team or in some cases, constantly injured.

These are those guys. The weak, weary and the unproven. You might win because of one of these guys but you might also come in dead last because you banked on a backup leading you to victory. You have been warned.
