2018 Fantasy Football Draft Tips, Strategy, and Advice

All you should be concerned with in the first few rounds of your draft is securing the services of as many stat compilers as possible, regardless of their position.

They may not pull from leagues that match your roster parameters. One of the most common mistakes made every year is exchanging free will for servitude to ADP.

All too often a fantasy owner will like a player and ultimately be right about him, but miss out on having him on his team because his ADP was half a round later.

Be prepared to reach for your guys. Understand that I am not advocating taking a player with, say, an eighth-round ADP in the fourth round. Few fantasy owners have regretted reaching a round or a round-and-a-half for a player they like.

Then, once the draft starts, take out a fresh slice and slap another participant across the face with it, blinding them with scalding hot grease. Or, that beer you promised? Don't let on that you've boiled it to degrees and plan on showering it upon your friends-turned-hated opponents. Remember, almost anything in your home can be turned into a weapon. So I guess maybe just have everyone stay in their individual homes and draft online.

Unless you enjoy the company of others. Everything you need to get ready for fantasy draft season, from rankings to sleepers to the SI mock draft. This is the year though. The Ryan Tannehill - Jarvis Landry romance that once captured our hearts is over, and Parker is the new go-to guy in Miami. Adam Gase is getting into Parker as a screen game weapon, because Parker is a physical, no-nonsense runner after the catch. I think Parker ends up leading Miami in catches and yards.

If Cordy Glenn and Billy Price provide a legitimate upgrade up front, Mixon is a top fantasy value. Though it seems everyone loves him now. McKinnon is a perfect fit in a Kyle Shanahan offense. Durability might be the only question. He was my favorite NFL draft sleeper last spring. Wilkins had an abbreviated career at Ole Miss because of academic problems, so he comes into the league with plenty of juice left in his legs, and he needed only touches to put up 1, yards from scrimmage in the SEC last season, he had yards over 21 career carries—7.
