I’ve been in a handful of drafts this offseason with co-managers (including one with three other co-managers). One thing I’ve found myself doing in order to prepare to co-draft a fantasy team is to pick out my draft targets in each round. When I’m on the clock in a fantasy draft, I realistically only have a few choices available. In most rounds there are only a handful of players I’m actually considering. So putting those targets down in writing has been helpful when strategizing with another owner. And maybe you’d like to see who I’m targeting too.
I’m using FFPC redraft ADP from the last week, to ensure I’m looking at the most up-to-date data. I’ve broken down each round into two categories: players I’ll reach for, and players I’ll pick if they become a value. Players I’ll reach for are my priority targets, and I have many of them on almost all of my teams 2019. Players I’ll draft if they fall to me are guys I take when none of my priority targets are still available. Players who aren’t anywhere on this list also generally aren’t anywhere on my teams. Having a strict “Do Not Draft” list has been helpful in making sure I’m filling my team with players that I actually want, and in avoiding decision fatigue when I’m on the clock.
If your favorite guy isn’t on this list, it doesn't necessarily mean I don't like them, but it probably means I'm not drafting them for whatever reason (injury concerns, value concerns, or maybe there are too many targets I like better in the same range).
Players I’ll Reach For
- David Johnson
It’s not always possible to reach for Johnson, but as I would draft him at 1.04 ahead of his current 1.06 ADP, he becomes a priority target.
