Draft Strategy

Perfect Draft: 14-Team PPR

By Jared Smola 7:08am EDT 8/14/19


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 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.


Pick 1, 2 or 3

Round 1

QB:

RB: Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara

WR:

TE:

You’re blessed with the opportunity to grab 1 of fantasy football’s elite RBs. Ezekiel Elliott will re-join this group if he reports to the Cowboys before Week 1.


Round 2

QB:

RB: Melvin Gordon, Kerryon Johnson, Aaron Jones

WR: Adam Thielen, Keenan Allen

TE:

You’ll need to decide if you’re willing to gamble on Gordon here. There’s a real chance his holdout runs into the regular season — although we still think he’s much more likely than not to be on the field come Week 1.

If you’d rather play it safer, Johnson and Jones make sense here.


Round 3
