Fail to prepare and you’re destined to fail. This statement is true for all fantasy football drafts regardless of the format. Whether you’re talking about a 16-round standard draft, a 53-round deep dynasty draft, or a three-round rookie draft. If you don’t do the prep work, you’re shooting yourself in the foot right from the start.
Fortunately, you don’t need to spend countless hours in the trenches prepping for your 2018 fantasy football rookie drafts. We did the work for you here at Pro Football Focus. But a little primer can’t hurt.
It’s a good idea to prepare a draft board for every one of your drafts. Below, you’ll find my board for rookie drafts along with some strategy ideas on how to attack each position. Don’t forget that you can also check out my 2018 fantasy football rookie rankings if you’d like a traditional list for your draft.
