Draft Strategy

The Perfect Draft: 10-Team PPR (Updated Aug. 30)

By Kevin English 7:08am EDT 8/30/18


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 wherever value arises. That’s where the dynamic MVP Board with Suggested Picks really helps.

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 differ.

Note: August 30 updates are in bold.


Pick 1 or 2

Round 1

QBs:

RBs: Todd Gurley, Le’Veon Bell

WRs:

TEs:

Nothing fancy up top. Secure an elite back and move along.

Gurley is the safest bet, recently passing holdout Bell for the top spot in our rankings.


Rounds 2-3

QBs:

RBs: Christian McCaffrey, Joe Mixon Jerick McKinnon

WRs: A.J. Green

TEs: Rob Gronkowski

Gronk likely pops up as your suggested pick here, as he gives you a massive advantage over most of the TE field.

Mixon, whose ADP has crept up, makes for another strong selection.

Consider a Gurley-Mixon-Gronk start ideal.
