5 Steps To Get Last Chance Fantasy Football Draft Help

  • David Gonos


A lot of things have changed since the beginning of 2017 NFL training camps back in late July. Players have been suspended, games have been moved because of weather and players have been cut, traded or injured.

With all that stuff going on, some people with late-preseason drafts might be scampering around for some Fantasy Football draft help! If you go off a magazine at this point, you’ll end up with a Week 1 Fantasy Football lineup that might consist of:

  • QB Andrew Luck
  • RB Jay Ajayi
  • RB Spencer Ware
  • WR Julian Edelman
  • WR Cameron Meredith
  • TE O.J. Howard
  • K Andre Franks
  • DST Buccaneers

That lineup, my friend, would likely score you a zero in Week 1!

But don’t worry, we got your back – with several helpful resources below that will help even the biggest Fantasy Football Draft help procrastinator!

Drafting Soon? 5 Steps To Get Last Chance Fantasy Football Draft Help

There can be arguments made for both cases of course, and some of these points can refer to the Dolphins, too. But for the most part, the Bucs are Fantasy rich, so this has more to do with their club.

Step 1. Connect Draft Wizard To Your League

It doesn’t matter if you are drafting on ESPN, Yahoo!, CBS Sports or one of several other Fantasy Football draft sites, this Draft Wizard connects to your draft and follows along with each pick, letting you know who dozens of experts would draft for every one of your picks. They also have a Pick Predictor that lets you know the probability that whichever player you select will still be available by the time your next draft pick comes up.

Step 2. Watch as Many FNTSY Videos as Possible

These guys are delivering several videos a day, all day long, and they’re instantly hooking you up with the latest information, like how Ezekiel Elliott might be suspended for six games, but he’ll be active for Week 1. They also have two great videos that share the perfect first round and the perfect second round for drafting.

Step 3. Check Out FantasyFootballCalculator.com’s ADP

This is probably the most serious mock drafting site out there, so check their most recent Average Draft Positions and you’ll get a better idea of where players are getting drafted right now. For instance, a little over a week after Spencer Ware went down with a knee injury, Kareem Hunt’s ADP shot right up and he’s now a late second-round pick.

Step 4. Read NFL Headlines on RotoWorld Often

I like to open up this page on a tab on Google Chrome, then just check it once or twice every couple hours to see what the most important news happened since the last time you checked. It auto-updates!

Step 5. Check Out Your Site’s ADP Compared To Consensus ADP

If you’re about to sit down for your draft, why not check to see which players are likely going to be drafted much lower or much higher on your draft site than on other draft services combined. For instance, if you are drafting on CBS, Tevin Coleman is getting drafted a couple rounds earlier than other draft sites. Look at Eddie Lacy, who is getting drafted a couple rounds later on CBS than on the other draft sites. Find the good values!
