High-Stakes Redraft Strategies

High-stakes leagues are tempting, especially to casual players, with extravagant paydays attracting everyone with even the slightest interest in fantasy football. Playing for big money does require a slightly different approach, as the competition is stiffer and the financial rewards can tend to cloud judgement. Here are some guidelines for taking a swing at a hefty prize pool, along with some reminders about general draft approaches.

Don’t Overthink It

Playing for big money can sometimes make people draft differently and take risks at the wrong time. Your first three picks should not be risky, they should be guys you can rely on week in and week out. In the middle rounds is when you draft those upside guys. Then the later rounds are where you take your shots with sleepers. You should always love your first three picks and yes, you want upside but you should also be drafting for consistency early on. Don’t let those dollar signs cloud your judgement.
