Shawn Siegele is a three-time MFL10 of Death champion. He helps you prepare to be lucky by sharing his favorite best ball roster hacks during this week’s event.

This is one of the most fun weeks in the fantasy calendar for me as I get to compete against my favorite people. Pat Thorman’s MFL10 of Death VIII kicked off on Monday, and you can track the progress of the industry’s top experts.

As I work on my prep for the event every year, I like to share the insights from our best ball tools suite that helps readers gain serious advantages against the competition. Last Friday I examined the perception that wide receiver is deep and discovered that WR is functionally much shallower than owners realize.

That may be underselling it. Win rates for WR selections collapse after Round 5. This follows my own experience of drafting in Round 6 this morning. While I loved the opportunity to grab Tee Higgins with the previous pick, the options are much shakier just a round later. We’re already forced to choose between receivers who are unproven, low-ceiling, or returning from injury. I selected D.J. Chark, an upside pick but a player with plenty of question marks.

Today we’re going to examine a less controversial idea, but one that owners often get wrong. In fact, in all of fantasy football, I’m not sure there’s a single instance of a decision that’s so easy and yet so wildly unpopular. I’ll look at why a simple roster hack based on the Roster Construction Explorer and our Best Ball Workshop would have given you a 13.5% win rate in 2020.
