100 Fantasy Football Tips in 100 Days, Day 63: My First NFFC Draft

I recently participated in my first NFFC draft of the year. I broke it down at RotoWire.

The top of the board is filled with receivers, and that trend continued down the board. I have Danario Alexander projected at the same number of points as Le’Veon Bell, for example, even though Alexander’s ADP is much lower.

Having said that, my goal wasn’t simply to fill up the wide receiver position at all costs to get one of them into the flex, because that would be leaving me bare at other positions. It’s not like you can just start whoever you want; that you must start a tight end, for example, is what makes a player like Jimmy Graham so valuable. And due to the opportunity cost of bypassing running backs early, I still wanted to make sure I was strong (and deep) there.`

So with the ninth overall pick, this is how I played it…


Head to RotoWire for analysis of my first 10 picks.
