Average Draft Position

What if you had the knowledge of how thousands of other people drafted players in a Fantasy draft utilizing the same type of rosters and similar scoring systems? Would it be worth something? Of course it would. The average position tool is a wonderful and helpful feature of AntSports they have so many helpful tools over there including the average draft tool, mock drafting tool and for the hardcore folks a serious mock draft. They are FREE and I recommend checking them out - they even offer leagues.
Using the average position tool will assist you in evaluating value of players at positions within a draft. They will help you gauge when a player is likely to go. Something to check in on for sure during your preparation. You can check all positions or just by individual position. Educate yourself - be prepared.

One of the most popular past-times in the US for sports fans is now Fantasy Football. And, without a doubt the most important aspect of building your fantasy football team is the draft. Sure, you may be able to concoct a trade or two but the vast likelihood is that you are stuck with what you got. You need a clear strategy entering the draft, and that's what the Sports Addict is here to provide.
(side note = these tips may not work for every league, be sure to carefully study your league's rules and see what stats are best rewarded).
A site you may want to check out is AntSports.com. Their mock fantasy drafts can be very helpful. A look ath the average draft position for July 7-29 shows that of the top 10 pics, onely 1 (Peyton Manning) was not a RB. And in fact only 3 of the top 20 were not RB.
Rd 1: Go RB! Running back is the position with the least number of quality starters. You're most likely going to need atleast 3 RBs on your team and grabbing one early on is imperative. Think big 3 = Holmes, LT, and Shaun Alexander (most underrated back in the league).
Rd 2: Depending on size and depth of your league you probably need to go RB again - caveat for leagues that place an emphasis on quarterback. Think steals at this point. How late did Julius Jones go in your draft last year? I promise he goes earlier this year.
Rd 3: Have you gone RB/RB so far? If so, time to grab a QB. Don't worry if you haven't grabbed one of the big boys (McNabb, Culpepper, Manning). There's still plenty of potential on the board. Just think about the break out season in San Deigo last year.
Rd 4. Time to start filling in those WR gaps. After the first few go off the board there is relative parity. TO, Harrison, Moss, and Holt definetly won't be available at this point. But What about Chad Johnson, Andre Johnson and Muhsin Muhhamed? Chance are there still is some quality left at the position.
(side note = I usually put TE off until a later round. There are a few exceptions you may wish to consider - Gonzalez, Gates and Shockey. Just remember how many people got burned on Shockey last year. Once you go to replace him, the value will be the same as a latter round pick)
Rd 5. This is where you need to start taking the best player available. Think WR since you need to start atleast 2 every week and possibly in a flex spot. Also remember you need a 3rd running back. Guys like Chris Brown could easily slip this year.
Rd 6. Are the top defenses still on the board? You may want to grab NE/Baltimore/PIttsburgh/Philly. Don't be fooled by runs on this however. You can always grab DEF/K/TE in the later rounds and off the waiver wire. Unless you get one of the top 5 defenses you will most likely be claiming a DEF off the waiver wire at some point.
Rd. 7+ You are on your own. Get the best possible player. Every year there are tons of break-out players. You need to find them. read everything you can. Remember when Drew Bennett came on for all those touchdowns at the end of the 2004 season. You can be sure I already had him starting.
