Picking a Cheat Sheet

There are numerous free and paid sites that provide rankings and projections. Find one you trust, even if it’s not ours. Some tips:

• Rankings are good, projections are better.
• Consensus rankings and projections tend to outperform individual rankings and projections.
• Find rankings and projections that match your league type: PPR, standard, 2-QB, return yards, etc.
• Use tiers or overall rankings to understand how players compare to other positions.

You MUST use a cheat sheet that can be customized to your league settings. If you show up to your draft with a generic list of players you’re already behind. When evaluating a cheat sheet ask yourself the following:

• Is this just a list of players or will this help me find value during my draft?
• Does it incorporate Average Draft Position (ADP)?
• Does it help me plan several picks in advance?
• Will it be easy (and fast) to use during my draft?
• Does it help me plan strategies before the draft?
• Does it use value-based drafting (see next page) or is it points based?
