Shawn Siegele breaks down all 20 rounds of the 2021 MFL10 of Death and takes you behind the scenes with the Roster Construction Explorer.

The MFL10 of Death VIII lived up to its name in 2021. Here’s an example: In normal leagues, 43 running backs and 50 wide receivers are going in the first 10 rounds. Our split was 36/56. That’s much more efficient drafting if your goal is to win.

Today I’m going to take you on a whirlwind tour through all 20 rounds and look at the best and most provocative picks. You’ll discover the most popular reach picks according to the top minds in the industry, and you’ll discover exactly how the experts like to build their own rosters.

I’ll also explain my player targets and why they fit with the previous lessons from the Best Ball Workshop.

  • The RB/WR lesson likes RB in Round 1 but gives some controversial direction on where to go with the rest of your high-leverage choices.
  • The TE Lesson demonstrates the almost unbelievable impact of the stars but also gives you a contingency plan if you get locked out.
  • The DEF Lesson explains why the dominant defensive approach is getting even more successful even as it loses popularity … and it’s not the reason you think.
  • And finally the QB Lesson shows you how to build safety and upside into unpopular builds and why executing an overall ‘onesie’ strategy is the key to your draft.

Roster construction matters. Mike Beers, who built the tools that give our readers such a big competitive advantage, broke down the draft in a twitter thread discussing how the league looks according to his sims. You’ll be blown away by the win rates when you execute our lessons as part of an overarching best ball strategy.

Round 1

Best Pick: DeAndre Hopkins
