When preparing for your 2017 NFL Fantasy Football Rankings, where do you start?
Hopefully you will pay attention to the ADP, or Average Draft Position in your own fantasy rankings and use this information to make informed decisions about human tendencies. See this tool @ fantasyfootballcalculator
Since you can always see this information there, updated daily, and even use and sort according to the “Dashboard”, then this article will go over some of the key strategies and considerations when humans are making these picks.
When making computer analysis picks always look at the Draft Dashboard, for up to date analysis on GameDay
By the way, as you can see there the setting allows for the black out of the chosen players you already have drafted as well as others picks, to quickly see where you are at during a “live” draft.
For the actual list, I will go ahead and update the top menu section: “Fantasy Football Draft Board” for the Best Value Based on ADP, Computer Rankings, and Fundamentals of Fantasy Football in PPR Leagues across Yahoo, and DanDuel Points Generally for season long and Daily leagues also being considered for the upcoming year projections.
This Post is mainly laying the groundwork for the foundation and explaining what is all behind the rankings will include: (To my knowledge, no other site considers these additional factors.
- Variance: Meaning the Lowest Co-Efficient Variations, which are spotlighted Here as to how this calculation is actually made.
- Matchups: Based on Stats of apposing teams’ strengths and weakness defensively. Not accumulated until after a few weeks of regular season data. Prior season(s) not used.
- Upside Potential: The Upside of the Player to show improvement in his gameplay, increasing his Avg per Game Points scored compared to the previous year.
whether you are a seasoned expert or a beginner, there is a lot to consider. Consider this:
If you have followed Fantasy Football for a number of years, you are biased to certain players’ performaces in remembering whatever you recall in past performance of a certain player in your HUMAN thinking, you miss a lot of the information that really matters, that you cannot possibly evaluate in your head. Sure following football for years, gives you and edge, but a lot of people do too..
That makes for a lot of competition. So you need something more to base your player targeting on. This tool, DraftDashboard will help you Target the Best Up to Date Evaluated Players of the Day for you.
But it is only a starting point. Always consider your league: How does the scoring work?
In Daily Fantasy, How large of a contest is it and what percentage of players will actually win any cash. These large contests should be used with High Co-Efficient Variable to give you a legitimate shot to win Big Cash in Large Contests @ Low Entry Points, for Max Profits.
One More Important Thing:………
Check, if you can find this info, the ownership % of a player you are purchasing, as well as even how many Points a Given Player Actually Costs you In Cash Style Drafting such on DraftKings or Fanduel.
In a future article I will discuss how to find this data much more easily this year then in previous years as well. We are stepping our Game Up!
