Since the summer is almost halfway over, many eager fans see the impending fantasy football season. But now is the time to start preparing. In fact, Yahoo is already releasing research on undraftable players.
Do Some Mock Drafts
Many fantasy footballers go into the draft completely unprepared. Then they wonder why they have no depth and keep losing games. You should start doing mock drafts now and develop your strategy. If you want running back depth, then figure out how to get that. You should also think about which players might be improving or getting a little old.
Find A Good League
If you are planning to join a league at the last minute, that is probably not the best strategy. First, different leagues have different rules. You might not be prepared for an auction draft. Some leagues even have two quarterbacks per team or unusual scoring systems. Beyond that, many leagues have players that just quit after a few weeks. Find friends that are not sore losers and will not get bored. If you played in a good league last year, try to get back in.
Prepare For Disaster
Any NFL fan knows that the season is unpredictable. Your star running back could go down in the first game. Running backs are probably the most valuable commodity in fantasy football. Prepare for one to go down. It is possible to get at least four decent running backs on your team. If nobody gets hurt, you can just rotate them throughout the season. But that extra running back could make a big difference.
Beyond that, research players that could have a surprising season. You could draft them in the latter rounds. If they work out, they could save your season.
Fantasy football can be more complicated than you might think. It requires preparation, strategy and research. If you begin now, you will multiply your chances of success.
