Target the top receivers and possibly one of the top three quarterbacks if you’re picking late.
You don’t need to be a fantasy football guru to know you shouldn’t draft a back-up quarterback. This is especially true if the back-up in question failed to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job.
Check out a handy chart that shows when to go for value and potential over need.
In-season roster management is key to winning your fantasy football league, but the draft goes a long way towards determining the champ. Value is the most important word when it comes to the draft. Here are a few tips to stay a few moves ahead of your competitors.
Let’s not kid ourselves: a kicker is not going to win you a fantasy title. But in a tight match-up, you’ll take all the points you can get. All of these players are last-round selections, but you might as well have a strategy for crafting your kicker rankings.
One of last year’s top fantasy receivers, Josh Gordon, is facing a season-long suspension, but there are still plenty of talented wideouts to choose from. These players are studs no matter the scoring system.
Come on, admit it. You’ve set your lineup at work.
Quarterbacks are breaking records left and right in the pass-happy NFL, but that makes high-caliber running backs all the more valuable.

The NFC West defenses limit the value of the division’s offensive weapons.
If you’re not only ranking players, but also grouping them in tiers, tight ends are an interesting test case. Jimmy Graham is a one-man tier, with Gronkowski and Julius Thomas, both potential second-round picks, in the next group.
Will new “points of emphasis,” which may limit how defensive backs defend receivers, affect the physical Seahawks? Check back at midseason for an answer. For now, there’s no reason to think the Seahawks will surrender the top spot.
It’s a poorly-kept secret that the Seattle Seahawks don’t mind taking a penalty flag or two for pass interference or defensive holding in exchange for five or six no-calls on borderline plays.

I am all in on this Patriot team, and I suggest you do the same thing.
I have a dilemma that I think speaks to many fantasy teams out there.
It’s Week 10, and for those teams securely in the playoffs, you have much work to do to ensure you do not go one and done.
When deciding between two players week in and week out, you should take many things into account, but the decisive factor should most always be match-up.
Injuries in the NFL are inevitable, but this year they come in bunches.
You should always be preparing for the future for your fantasy team.
