Draft Strategy

Perfect Draft: 14-Team Non-PPR (Updated Sept. 3)

By Kevin English 9:09am EDT 9/3/20


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 14-Team non-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: You’ll notice a lot of names repeated in the same round between draft positions. Because non-PPR (and 14-team non-PPR) drafts are rare, reliable ADP is tough to come by. So you might find players lasting longer — or not quite as long — as they’re listed. The takeaway is the same as always: get your guy and don’t overthink ADP.

Note: September 3 updates in bold.


Pick 1, 2 or 3

Round 1

QB:

RB: Christian McCaffrey, Ezekiel Elliott, Saquon Barkley

WR:

TE:

Elliott tops Barkley by just 1 non-PPR point. If you’re drafting multiple teams in this range and have a chance at both, consider diversifying.


Round 2

QB:

RB: Aaron Jones, Chris Carson, James Conner, Todd Gurley

WR: Chris Godwin

TE: George Kittle

The non-PPR setup certainly places a premium on RBs and TD scorers. A RB-RB start is favorable, although a pivot to Kittle has merit. We project him for a career-high 7 scores this season.
