What is your draft strategy heading into this years Fantasy Football season?  Let us know in the comment section!

Round 1 - I do not like Chris Johnson as a 1st round pick this year, especially in a 10 team league.  I don't always recommend drafting QBs in the 1st round but Tom Brady and even Larry Fitzgerald are better 1st round picks than Chris Johnson

Round 2 - Cam Newton has even more value in leagues that are not PPR.  If that is the case in your league, then yes Newton is worth a 2nd round pick.  However, I am not sure he is the 4th best Fantasy QB.  Trent Richardson is not the 7th most valuable RB heading into the season.  Any of the other 3 2nd round backs should be selected before you think about adding Richardson.  The TEs in the middle of the round I am ok with because they are just as valuable as top notch WRs.  However, other than Gronk and Jimmy Graham, you should not be drafting TEs in the first 4 rounds.  Adrian Peterson, Matthew Stafford, Roddy White and Matt Forte at the end of round 2 are all steals.

Rounds 3 & 4 - Exactly how it should look with only RBs and WRs being drafted.

Round 5 - Depending on how you spent your first 4 picks, this is where you should start looking for a QB or TE.

Round 6 - 9 - In a real draft, these would be the rounds where you fill out your running backs and wide receivers.  Only the backup QBs BYE week should be taken into consideration when drafting your bench.  By the time the BYE weeks occur, your roster usually looks different from draft night anyway.

Round 10 On - These are the draft picks used for Kickers, Defense/Special Teams, your sleeper pick, rookies, and big risk big reward type players.
