One of the reasons you’ll love coming to Vegas so much as a sports fan is because the set up is done just for you. Massive big screen TVs are in place so you can watch your favorite game to your heart’s content and don’t forget about the food and drink specials.

How to Draft Your Fantasy Sports Team

Since you are a football fan, I don’t have to tell you why drafting your own football team is exciting. Even though your team is virtual, this is an awesome experience. Creating a fantasy sports team allows you to get in the game and feel more connected when you are watching the games.

Before you start drafting your fantasy sports team, you need to make sure that you understand how things are scored as well as how many players you need on your team. You need to establish how much you value each player and that means you need to create your own draft board (or borrow one from an expert.)

  1. If you don’t know how to create your own algorithm or you don’t feel like going through the process, you can find an expert’s ranking that you like and work with it. Make a spreadsheet and move the players up and down based on your feelings about the players. One of the columns you need to have is how often this player is picked. This will give you an idea of their popularity and could be one of the factors you use to choose to draft someone or not.

You may not want to rank every player and if that is the case for you, make sure that you do this with the first three rounds.

  1. Choose the best player available each time with your early picks. Don’t worry about what positions, balance and other things in the beginning. Make sure that you get the best players that you can right off the bat, and you can worry about everything else afterward. If you’ve already got your draft board, it shouldn’t be difficult for you to choose the player since you will already have them ranked high. Choose them no matter what position they play.

While you do want to be positionally balanced, you don’t need to worry about this in the first four rounds. Pick the best people and move forward confidently toward your fantasy win.

  1. Use more than one strategy when you are picking your team. As you are picking your team, see what is working for other people and then meld it into your own strategy.
  2. Don’t assume this year will be the same as last year. If you think the players are going to perform the same this year as they did last year, this isn’t always the case. Keep in mind that they are aging, training differently, possibly playing for a different team. All of these things need to be taken into consideration when you are drafting them.
