Draft Strategy

Structural-Based TE Drafting in MFL10s

Last year I wrote my Two-TE1 thesis for best-ball leagues, which had four main points to it.
  1. TEs between Rounds 4 and 9 (TE2 to TE12) were projected for similar points to their WR counterparts.
  2. This freed up the ability to draft 3-DEF, or 3-QB or an extra WR/RB while locking down the TE position.
  3. It was robust to different assumptions, as shown by two different sets of Monte Carlo simulations.
  4. It worked with a multitude of structural-based drafting strategies, including Zero RB, robust RB, and more.
So how am I approaching the TE position this year? Slightly different, but really, not super different from last year. Each of the three strategies hinges around a structural-based draft strategy. To see why structural-based drafting is important for 95 percent of us, I suggest you read the intro to Josh Hermsmeyer’s structural drafting in dynasty article. Let’s start with a look at some projections, then I’ll present the strategies that arise from it.
