A couple nights ago I was using the most awesome fantasy tool on the internet, RotoViz’s Snake Draft Planner, in order to prepare for the redraft league I’ve been doing for not quite a decade with my high school friends. Since it started years ago we’ve carried on lots of weird quirky rules longer than we should’ve (such as the system of keeping players, which I won’t get into), and it’s a 10-team league, but all of the guys in it play in multiple leagues, they’ve all been playing for years, we talk a lot of shit to each other during the draft and throughout the season—and the same f-ing guy has won the league for the last 3 years. It’s painful. Last year, in the two-week matchup to see who would be the first broseph with 3 league championships (I won 2 of the 3 first seasons), I lost by the exact margin of Lawrence Tynes’ s sucky Week 15-16 point total (2 pts) and Matt Prater’s (21 pts)—and Tynes had been the best kicker in the league up to that time. Whatever. In short, it’s a full-out war. I’m not looking to win. I’m looking to dominate. I wanna make this dojo mine. I wanna walk into the draft saying, “I’m gonna rip the eyes out of year head and piss in your dead skull,” and walk out saying, “Zed’s dead, baby, Zed’s dead.” With that in mind, I decided I would employ these RotoViz approved techniques in my draft, and so I played with the app with these points in mind:
