Draft Sharks 5 Strategic Best Ball Pillars 

Using traditional redraft strategies in best ball is a losing formula.  Here’s what you need to win instead …

1. Match Your Draft Strategy To The Specific Format

Winning a best ball league is very different from taking down a best ball tournament. Your plan needs to align with the format.

2. Weekly Scoring Volatility Can Make or Break Your Draft

Volatile scorers can boost your best ball upside. But reaching for them can bust your season.

3. Stack Your Players, Stack Your Cash
Player Stacks Create Exponential Scoring Upside

Combining players from the same NFL team will spike your weekly and season-long upside.

4. Draft Like You’re Right

Don’t hedge your bets when building a tournament roster. Take bigger risks. Go with guys you love. 

5. One-of-a-Kind Teams Win Big

You won’t win big bucks in mega-tournaments drafting like everyone else.  Build a “one-in-thousands” team to create a path to the top.
