Shawn Siegele shows you how to gain a big advantage in your FFPC Classic best ball league just by making some simple decisions on defense.

The rhetoric around fantasy leagues increasingly focuses on hitting a high win-rate player early and trying to land a sleeper. Of course, this helps. And I’m (very) biased, but I think RotoViz is your leading source of those hits. Last year, Curtis Patrick and I selected Alvin Kamara and Dalvin Cook for our two FFPC Main Events and reaped the benefits all the way to a No. 12 overall finish. In what could be considered less of a no-brainer,[1] Blair Andrews recommended Justin Jefferson as the only rookie WR who checked all the boxes. Recently, he explained how to locate the next Justin Jefferson, which is obviously what you’re looking for at the moment.

Another way to find the next Jefferson is to buy our famous RotoViz Rookie Guide.

We’ll have you covered on players, but hitting on stars is not all you can do to help yourself win. Only one person in your league is going to have 2020 Alvin Kamara or 2019 Christian McCaffrey, and while it won’t necessarily be the owner with the 1.01 – that slot actually has a horrific 5.6% win rate over the last four years due to repeated RB busts – at least half of your league’s owners won’t be in position to land that player even if they wanted to.

That’s where the Roster Construction Explorer comes into play. Last week I showed you a way to generate win rates equivalent to owning Derrick Henry just by making some simple decisions with kickers. Kickers. You can even throw some expletives in there to show your distaste and boredom if you want. But structural drafting wins. And wins big.

So today, let’s talk a little bit about defenses.

1 We’re proud of telling folks to load up on Dalvin Cook, but it doesn’t take genius to select those guys, just the right slot in the first round.
