Favorite Dynasty Startup Draft Slot


#1

Hey Guys,

I’m partaking in a dynasty startup draft later this summer and we will be going through a process to determine draft slotting. In a full PPR, 10 team, snake draft, which draft position would you choose as an ideal slot?


#2

Is there trading allowed before the draft? That would change my answer drastically.

I want between 2-5. Championship teams have one thing in common. Blue chip players, like Antonio Brown/OBJ/Todd Gurley…
It’s cheaper to get one through the draft then to pay for it later.


#3

Yes, trading is allowed. I’m assuming you are saying to take the first slot and then take trade offers?

Your answer is in line with my own thinking, as I had been targeting slots 3 or 4, to still get a top level player. I’m not a fan of being on the ends of the snake with such long waits between picks, you can miss out on entire tiers of players

I wasn’t necceaily suggesting taking 1.01 - because that dictates where your other draft picks are allocated. But it does change the strategy and ultimately, based on trades, where you are making draft picks.

In a league with trades I want to retain my first three picks. Meaning I want three in the first 30 picks or so. That doesn’t mean you can’t trade them and shuffle around. But these players are key to a dynasty team. Then I’m happy to sell 4-6 away to gain multiple 7-9 picks.

An example might be:
Trade away 2.06 and 5.07 for the 2.11, 7.02, 8.11 and 9.02

Please note I haven’t thought through the value above - just wanted to give an example.

I prefer picking later. There are always great values on blue chip guys later. For example, I got OBJ at 6 in a start up this year, and that’s stealing.
