Help me get over the hump and actually win a championship.
Over the last 6 years in my main league i have finished
My waiver wire knowledge is good. I find the phillip lindseys of the world or am able to still make the championship game after losing DJ and OBJ in the same season.
My trading is good as well. I am able to flip the Hot RB early in the season for the underperforming WR and then 2 weeks later those players flip roles and i got the better end.
I think my drafting might be what could put me over the top. I am good at drafting but i am thinking about doing a different approach and see if it can put me over the top. I understand the game of fantasy takes very minimal injuries and honestly prob a tad bit of luck but I am hoping I can maybe make some of my own luck by drafting a tad bit smarter.
So ive noticed over the last 4 seasons at least 1 if not both teams have had one of the top 3 TE in the league on their roster. Either GRONK, ERTZ, GRAHAM. Now yes of course the Team had a RB1 and WR1 as well but i can’t help but thinking since its a 10 man league everyone’s team is usually good/great so to have an advantage at the TE position might be the key.
Here are my settings
10 teams ½ pt PPR
4pt passing TD
(all other scoring is standard)
1 QB,2RB,3WR,TE, Flex(w/r/t),K,DST
Auction Draft -$200 budget
Now this is a keeper league so that throws a tiny bit of strategy into the draft that wouldn’t be there for a redraft league but overall your still trying to put the best team together.
The draft is also an auction which i love as I have access to anyone and everyone in the draft.
Now I make my own spreadsheet of rankings and auction prices. This is based 95% off the ballers UDK rankings and prices but i move a couple players up or down a few spots dependant on my bias. Now i also put ESPN’s prices in the sheet just so I know what the rest of my league mates are willing to spend as 7 of the other 9 members i know just use ESPN prices and rankings. Now ESPN’s prices are way cheaper than the ballers prices. So i may be able to get a discount at the draft but i will use ballers prices for my example.
So I have kept Dalvin cook-$26 and Kerryon Johnson-$18 my budget is $156 for the rest of my spots would you Target Kelce and spend $30-$40 on him and fill out the rest of your roster. I have just never spent big on a TE as i feel the drop off past the top 3 is so HUGE i would rather just save the $29 and get a $2 TE that is good enough to beat 7 of the 10 other members but now i am thinking its something i might want to invest in.
Or what advice would you give me to maybe put me over the hump… I could give you more info about the league or anything else if that would help you answer but don’t want to clog this post down with too much ATM.
