Engraved Inspirational Stones

Are you ready for some football? Most fantasy drafts take place between August 29 (after the last pre-season game) and Tuesday, September 2. Have you done your homework? Folks tend to look at last year’s numbers and presume that those guys will continue to perform well in 2014. In many cases they will, but consider the new crop of players and the sleepers.

When you go to your draft, make sure you have a quality cheat sheet and an inspirational paperweight with you. Don’t use a one-size-fits-all sheet. Make sure yours is calculated based on your league’s scoring rules. Do a simulated draft before you go for the 1st three rounds. You probably know the guys in your league and how they think, so out think them. Make sure you have an adequate backup at QB for the bye week and in case your QB is injured. Here are some lesser known names to consider this year:

At RB – Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy

At WR – Alshon Feffery, Antonio Brown

At TE – Kyle Rudolph, Jace Amaro

Good Luck Stone

The NFL pre-season games have begun. That means that if you haven’t started our Fantasy Football plan yet, it is time to get moving.  The strategy you follow depends on whether you are in a 12, 10 or 8 team league.  There is no one way to draft your team.  Consider your scoring system first because in some leagues, a tight end could be even more valuable that a good running back.

Last year’s results are helpful, but check out the following:

  • changes in quarterbacks and receivers
  • changes in the offensive line
  • coaching changes
  • Rookies likely to get lots of touches

When planning your draft, have a first and 2nd choice for each of the 1st three rounds.  Remember, while drafting is a vital step toward winning, the real challenge is in making the right moves during the season.  Injuries are a part of Fantasy, so study your options for injury and bye weeks.  Keep a good luck stone in your pocket for Sundays this year.  Pass this advice on to your favorite, fantasy football fanatics.  They will see this as personalized friendship gifts.
