In a Half Point PPR League and need players to target? Gridiron Experts has you covered with the best half point PPR players to target in fantasy drafts.
In a bit of a stunning move, the Philadelphia Eagles have traded starting quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are reportedly shipping their 2017 1st and 4th-round draft picks to the Eagles in exchange for the 28-year old signal-caller.
For those in the fantasy community who choose to participate in leagues with a PPR scoring format, the strategy on draft day is a much different animal. Players that would normally get tossed under the rug in standard format leagues due to inefficiency in the red zone, or inconsistent touchdown production, suddenly rise the ADP boards due to the targets they will receive on any given week.
Tight ends in fantasy football are an interesting conundrum. If they have a great week, it can put your team over the top against your opponent. However, if they're a dud for that week, it is still possible to win your matchup depending on how well your other positions performed, but it's not easy. Getting production from the Tight End position in fantasy football should not be overlooked. Consistency is what you want, and finding late round Tight End gems that can produce solid numbers every week should be the goal.
We're into the thick of Fantasy Football draft season so I wanted to jot down some quick tips on how to best set yourself up to win your league on draft day. Of course, leagues aren't won or lost during the draft, but they can give you a nice head start if you maximize your upside.
Everyone loves reading about players with upside. Unheralded guys that make good value picks. Players that can be drafted with a reasonable expectation that the onfield results will exceed their draft expectations. And perhaps everyone's favorite preseason topic is guys that are going to be this season's top sleepers.
