Mike Braude’s fantasy platform provides an excellent window into the 2023 draft landscape and gives us insights into the player targets of top analysts.
The Apex Experts League is one of my favorite drafts every year. It gives us a feel of how the best minds in the industry are playing it from both a tactical and player-specific perspective, and it offers a window into the overall strategy you should be employing in leagues with 2-RB, 3-WR, 1-Flex starting lineups, especially those that remove the TE premium scoring.
In today’s redraft exercise, we’ll look at . . .
- how 2023’s ADP shift manifests in this type of format and how the experts like to play it.
- how you want to adjust to new incentives and a new location for the RB Dead Zone.
- what the WR Avalanche/Cliff means for drafters who get caught at the end of a run.
- the variety of dominant QB approaches that can be executed in the Year of the Elite QB.
In addition to those elements, I break down some of my most controversial picks and use tools like the Range of Outcomes, Advanced Stat Explorer, and Stealing Signals to answer questions about difficult player profiles. We’ll also pull in some of Blair Andrews’ freshest research as we attempt to beat ADP while on the clock.
I’ve also linked to player profiles on many of my priority targets for any managers with Saturday night draft parties or Sunday events.
