I have been playing Fantasy Football for 3 years now. Through my 3 seasons, I’ve noticed that the draft selections are drastically different depending on what site I use. This is because different sites have different rankings.
Brandon Gdula of numberFire takes a look at how to exploit these different rankings for ESPN Fantasy users:
Using numberFire Kit to Win Your ESPN Fantasy League
“Studying ranks, reading recommendations, and doing mock drafts are always great ways to get a running start into fantasy football season, but if you get to the draft and face drastically different rankings than you’re used to, you may not be able to wait for your favorite picks, and you may be seeing names you didn’t consider drafting who are being suggested as early picks. I’ve been there before, and I’ve felt compelled to reach for a player just because he was listed higher on the site than on my personal ranks.
So what I’m here to do is examine ESPN’s composite rankings and uncover the market inefficiencies between their ranks and numberFire’s cheat sheet rankings while being set to ESPN’s standard scoring and lineup settings.” LINK
