Season-Long Fantasy Outlook Recap

I finally have my first season-long draft tomorrow and I am the most prepared human being in the history of fantasy football. Today I’ll be giving a quick recap of my biggest takeaways from each division, including the players I love, the players I don’t love, and a few waiver pickups to keep an eye on heading into the season. Let’s go.
Players I Love
These are the guys I think have great value in fantasy drafts this year. I am not including most of the obvious guys because nobody needs to know that Saquon Barkley is a great fantasy RB. These are players who I think are being drafted too late in fantasy drafts. Check out my individual divisional breakdowns for an explanation of why.
Note: Players are ordered by division, not ranking.

Players I Don’t Love
For one reason or another, I believe these players are all being overdrafted. They may have good seasons, but I think they are being drafted far too early for me to consider them. Check out my individual divisional breakdowns for an explanation of why.
Guys to Keep an Eye on
These are the guys I think are either worth targeting with late round picks or keeping an eye on in the waiver market. The key here is going to be the workload over the first few weeks of the season. If you see these guys getting a bunch of targets in week 1, they could be the waiver pickups that shape the entire 2019 fantasy football season.
The key to fantasy football is letting the draft come to you. You can go in with a strategy, but things are just not going to go the way you expect, so you need to be prepared for anything. As a rule of thumb, if I use my early picks on running backs, I’ll try to stockpile high-upside receivers late in the draft, and vise versa. Let the draft come to you. See which players fall, and adjust your strategy accordingly.
Below is a general guide of a few players I’m looking to target in each round. I tried to include a few names in each round so we have a few options depending on what you need at that point in the draft.
