Best Ball Round Table, Part 3: How to Manage a Poor Draft Slot and Why 2019 Could Usher in a Fantasy Points Explosion

I recently asked the gang to get together for a round table discussion looking at all of the biggest questions in best ball. I wanted to dive into the actionable intel found in the FFPC, Fanball, and DRAFT dashboards, as well as the Roster Construction Explorers for each format.

Joining me today are some of the more decorated best ball players in the industry. Monty Phan and John Lapinski are veterans of the FFPC wars with 2018 Bare Knuckles and Terminator titles as two of their most recent trophies. They’re joined by Mike Beers, the best ball guru himself and 2017 Pros Vs Joes overall champion, and Curtis Patrick.1 Michael Dubner is our resident DRAFT ace, while I’ve spilled some ink this summer with 14 lessons in the BestBall10s workshop

To make the conversation easier to follow, I’ve divided the round table by topic and credited each author with a byline. In the first installment, we looked at our must-own players and discuss the difficulties of TE selection in 2019. In Part 2, we dived into our favorite hacks from the Roster Construction Explorer. Today, we explore what to do when you’re stuck with a bad draft slot, when to use Zero RB, and why 2019 could see another huge explosion in fantasy scoring. – Shawn Siegele

Bad Draft Slots, Zero RB, and the Roster Construction Explorer

We left off in Part 2 with Monty discussing how he handles a weaker draft slot. What happens if you’re left without access to Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, and Alvin Kamara?

For a little more context, these were the Zero RB results for 2018 according to the Fanball Roster Construction Explorer.
