Draft Strategy

When You Leave an Expert Auction With Antonio Brown, DeAndre Hopkins, and Odell Beckham Jr.

This post will provide the resources you need to be a successful auction drafter and run you through the thought processes employed while dominating an expert auction. As a site, we haven’t had a lot of auction coverage this year, but Matt Freedman and I did a deep dive into auction strategy on RotoViz Radio. In this episode of the podcast, I touched upon a number of key concepts that auction drafters need to be aware of and understand. There’s a lot of bad auction advice out there. In fact, a lot of the auction “strategy” and “tactics” that I’ve read about or heard explained are significantly misguided. After having drafted in a couple of “expert leagues” I can confidently say that the experts might not get it either.
