An Essential Daily Fantasy Football Draft Guide Want to become really good in playing daily fantasy football? Here is an essential guide to follow to be a successful daily fantasy football player. 1. Be prepared when you face the drafting circle. What You Should Do: Get a copy of the rulebook of your daily fantasy football league. Know the scoring system and scoring method. Be aware of the prize disbursement in the league. Make a cheat sheet that you can always look at during drafting time. Do your research, especially on NFL players who you think are sleepers in the game. 2. Make sure you have your drafting equipment. What You Should Do: Know what you need before you step out of the league. Bring the money you need when you get there. Always have your cheat sheet with you. You worked hard to make that list so you better bring it. Bring resources like NFL magazines and what not that you can use. Bring a pen or a pencil, whichever you prefer. Bring a highlighter. Bring two different colors so you can highlight the name of the players you have in one color, and the players that are not available in another color. Feel like a real NFL team owner or, at the very least, a coach by bringing a clip board. You cannot write on the floor or on your knees for two hours right? Itâ€™s torture. Have a cover or folder so that you can keep your sheet private and no one will be able to see your picks. Get a blank draft roster grid. 3. Encourage your commissioner to become more innovative in the leagueâ€™s gameplay and drafting session. 4. Be quiet and try to observe. What You Should Do: You should be able to pay attention to what other players in your fantasy football league have chosen. Focus on what others have picked because if people have four running backs while your roster only says two, you have had a bad drafting session. When you keep a low profile, people will not give you a bad label or be wary of you. When you sit down, be quiet and just observe. You will notice a lot about other people and you can learn from the tricks they have and the things that should be avoided. 5. Be very wary about the bye weeks. What You Should Do: Never draft a backup quarterback when at the same time as the
bye week of your starter. The action kind of defeats the purpose of drafting that quarterback.
