The Perfect Fantasy Football Draft: Picks Six-Twelve In 2019
There are two types of fantasy football drafts this year: a draft where you get one of the first five picks or a draft where you don’t. Being able take your pick of Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliot, David Johnson, Alvin Kamara or Saquon Barkley is just an inherent advantage over the rest of your league. Therefore, there will be two editions of the perfect fantasy football draft in 2019. Yesterday, we ran through the first perfect fantasy football draft. Now, it is time to examine what happens when you are not lucky enough to draw a top-five pick.
The idea of the perfect fantasy football draft is to illustrate how things would go in a world where you could walk into your league and perfectly land the players that our projections have as favorable in each round. It is unlikely that this draft would come to fruition in practice (and it is more difficult after pick five) but that doesn’t mean the exercise cannot be instructive. The functional idea is to arm you with a plan heading into whatever draft it is that you are prepared for. Your home league of 15 years, a high(er) stakes FFPC draft, or any weekly management league should all apply here.
