Great article if you need to manage your fantasy draft board round by round based on player situations, injuries and unexpected retirements. You know who I’m talking about.
Fantasy football is all about managing expectations, and so every player you consider drafting has to be valued with their risk/reward proposition in mind. In the early rounds, especially Rounds 1 through 3, you want to limit your potential downside and make the most of each pick. Later in the draft, you can start to speculate with some calculated risks, but you don’t want to stray too far down the path of uncertainty. After all, today’s late-round reserve could become a much-needed replacement player later in the season.
