One of the most intimidating parts of playing fantasy football, especially for the newbie, is the draft. How do I make sure I make the right selections in the right order? How do I avoid making a goofy move that becomes the joke of the 2013 season? The answer is proper research and preparation. As with every other aspect of life, the more prepared you are the easier is it to execute your game plan and do it with confidence. This article is aimed to give you a guide on why preparation is important, when it makes the most sense to prepare, and how to actually do the research and preparation itself. เว็บดูบอล

As we have already mentioned, preparation for the draft is somewhat obvious. The more you know about the players going into the draft, the better your decisions will be and the confidence in doing so will be high. There is nothing worse than getting into something unprepared. If you are truly ready, you will know which players you want to draft, which order you want to draft them, and which players you want to avoid altogether.

Timing of the research and preparation phase is also an important factor in being ready for your fantasy football draft. You do not want to begin research too early as many pre-season events could make the player values very fluid. Waiting until the last week or two could also be a bad idea, as many things in your everyday life could come up and you are forced to cram in a lot of information into a short period of time. We recommend starting at least 30 days prior to your draft, and will describe an ideal system later in the article. For the NFL season that starts the first weekend in September, typically fantasy football drafts are held in middle to late August. This puts preparation starting middle to late July. This proposed timing gives you enough to know where free agents have signed, off season injury status, or any other major team related issues.
