10 Unorthodox Tips to Win Your Fantasy Draft

Nolan Arenado

Draft Tip – Pay close attention to the draft sheet, but make your own decisions. 

Read the room while drafting. Notice which owners are comfortable jumping ahead and ‘reaching’ for players – this should be you, if you’re following our advice. Notice which owners appear to be selecting the best players available. Notice the order players get drafted.

Be one step ahead.

If the person drafting after you has shown a propensity to go heavy into sleepers, beat him to it. If he tends to follow the standard cheat sheets verbatim, draft with confidence that any player farther down the list than his eyes would scroll will still be available for your next pick.
