I am not a Fantasy Expert (though I do okay in my leagues and enjoy it very much). My real passion and expertise is with the NFL Draft. While glaring differences exist, there are some striking similarities between the two. NFL GMs claim to make picks solely based on value, while many Fantasy GMs typically focus first on positions. As an example, exactly zero RBs went in the First Round of this year’s NFL Draft, while as many as 10 will go in the upcoming Fantasy Draft. Moreover, most Fantasy GMs will take the fifth or sixth rated RB over the top-rated WR. The reasoning is solid however: RBs are king in Fantasy Football. Did you know that only five RBs last year rushed for more than 1,000 yards and scored more than 10 touchdowns? And most leagues require that there are 24 starting RBs. That is why there was an average of 9 RBs drafted in the first round of a 12 team draft a year ago. This over valuing of a RB should change and I have a feeling it will. At least on this site. The commonality between the two drafts, however, is that no matter who you draft early, you absolutely have to find some sleepers late or you will just be average. The first two rounds only take you so far.
