The Blueprint for Building the Perfect Fantasy Football Team

This is the time of year everybody starts putting together their fantasy football team and think it will carry them to their league championship. Over the years, I have developed and re-developed a plan, or blueprint, that has led me to numerous championships and maybe can help you.

Now, I am not guaranteeing a championship if you follow my blueprint because there is one aspect of my plan that you can't plan for and that is luck. You will need Lady Luck on your side during the draft by having certain players fall to you, getting lucky with waiver pick ups and having those so called sleepers pan out.

In the end, luck won't matter if you haven't built a strong base to work off from in the draft. The best thing you can do when drafting a team is eliminate as much risk as possible. For example, I have Adrian Peterson ranked higher than Arian Foster, even though Foster may score more points than AP.

The reason is because that Peterson has been a top fantasy producer for a couple of years and Foster could be a one-hit wonder and he has already tweaked his hamstring this past week.

I have broken down each position and will give you pointers on how to build the perfect fantasy football team.
