5 Sets of 15

Last year, I thought that I was prepared for the fantasy season. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Yes, I had done many mock drafts, but does that REALLY prepare oneself for the season. No, it does not. I realize now that mock drafts alone do little to help. I found that mocks were a secondary kind of research. What was made clear to me was that, the most important strategy was reading up on players, then forming my own opinions on them, continue ranking them, and lastly, basing my draft round by round with the help of mocks. Last year I drafted based off of ADP, and ESPN’s top 300 which led me to have an initial starting roster that finished with only one player in their respective top five for their position. So, as a guide for you all, I created 15 short lists of five in which I plot out the basis to my draft, and my success.
