Heading into a fantasy football draft, it's important to make sure your cheat sheet is a living document. Injuries, holdouts, signings and preseason performances should have some level of influence over your rankings up until the moment you're on the clock.
Any savvy fantasy football player knows NFL preseason Week 3 provides the most relevant and valuable info that can be gained before draft day. The challenging part is deciphering which performances to take note of and which to dismiss.
Anyone going to their draft with a magazine's ranking from months ago is already miles behind the vigilant fantasy player who has been keeping his or her finger on the pulse of the NFL. All that work won't translate into fantasy glory, however, if you put too much stock into the wrong statistics.
As a general rule, I won't downgrade any player for a preseason performance. I will only move a guy down due to injury, holdout or changes on the depth chart.
