How I do tier drafting in snake drafts are…
Have 3 things on my draft table.
- tier rankings of each player in his respective categorie.
- TOP 200 or ADP of top 200 players
- Blank roster sheet with my leagues roster size… Example : 1Qb,2Rb, 3Wr, Te, Flex 6 bench spots.
As the draft is happening I cross players off both lists…
When I get to the 5th 6th round I look at what players are usually drafted there… You might see Sammy Watkins, golden tate, ameer abdullah, mark Ingram, Matt Ryan, jimmy graham.
I then look at my roster sheet and see a couple things.
Ok did I take a TE Like Gronk early? If so I can easily pass on jimmy…
Have I drafted a QB yet? If not I look at my rankings and see Matt Ryan is in the same tier as Russel Wilson… I look at Russel Wilson adp and see its late round 6… So in round 5 I can pass on Matt Ryan as ill get the same calibur QB as I can in round 6.
Am I thin on RB… If so i look at which RB is ranked highest in the tiers I have… I check his adp to make sure he is around round 5… And if so I take him.
Am I thin on WR… If so I take a look at my tier sheet and see that golden tate is ranked in tier 5 and Watkins in tier 6…so I def take tate here.
So there is really no way to compare a RB tier 2 to a WR tier 3…
You really need to keep an eye first and foremost what your roster needs and then secondly what ADP is as to not draft someone you can get in the 12th round and instead you take him in the 6th. Losing alot of value
Now that’s not saying you cant reach for a player you absolutely believe in…
If Kareem hunt is your guy and his adp is 8th round but your team looks good in the 6th… Then sure take the guy you love over someone who is just so so.
Hope that helps a little bit.
