Draft Strategy

Perfect Draft: 10-Team PPR (Updated Sept. 2)

By Jared Smola 9:09am EDT 9/2/20


You should go into every fantasy draft with a general plan of attack.

Of course, you’ll need to be able to adjust throughout the draft and pounce on value wherever it presents itself. That’s where the dynamic MVP Board with Suggested Picks comes in.

But building a round-by-round strategy beforehand certainly helps. That’s exactly what we’re doing with the Perfect Draft series — using the MVP Board and ADP to get an idea of where the value will be in each round.

This is the 10-Team PPR Perfect Draft. Each strategy guide assumes 16-round drafts and starting lineups of 1 QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 K and 1 DEF. The MVP Board will help you adjust your strategy if your league settings are different.

Note: September 2 updates in bold.


Pick 1, 2, 3 or 4

Round 1

RB: Christian McCaffrey, Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, Alvin Kamara, Dalvin Cook, Derrick Henry

Don’t overthink this. Grab your stud RB and start lining up your next 2 picks.

The #4 pick is trickier now with talk of a Kamara holdout. We still expect him on the field come Week 1 and have him ranked 4th. But if you wanna play it safe, you can take Cook or even Henry.


Rounds 2 and 3

RB: Nick Chubb, Aaron Jones, James Conner

WR: Tyreek Hill, Chris Godwin

TE: Travis Kelce, George Kittle

We love the idea of grabbing Kelce or Kittle here. That’d give you an elite player at 2 different positions.

Otherwise, RB looks like your best bet. (You’ll like the WRs better at the 4th/5th-round turn.)
