You can probably tell from my football comentary around the board, that I don't know what I'm talking about half the time, and I make the other half up.

So chances are, I'm going about the whole FF thing all wrong. I generally get a few ADP sheets from different sites, publications, etc.... to see when I can expect certain players to go, and strategize around that.

Doing so, why would I need the cheet sheets?? I'm getting the feeling, that there's more info in them, that I just don't understand the value of.
Well first thing's first is that you have to know what types of point system your league has and really understand it to come up with a strategy in drafting as to what position is the highest value position for points. Every league is different, so you have to really keep in mind what position is the most important.

Yes, cheat sheets help. What I like to do is get a list of players like someone else said and mark them off. I also like to get a list of last year's top players at each position and see how they did point wise, and speculate what they will do this year. Each round figure out who is the best player available, BUT also consider whether or not you can still get really good value at that position in the next round, and if there's a certain player available at another position that won't be in the next round you might want to consider that player for your current pick.

What I will be doing this year for most of my picks is going straight for players each round that I have no question will produce rather than make a lot of gambles on my own personal speculation. Certain guys are no brainers, and I like to make sure that I can always get guys that will give me decent points even on their worst weeks. I'd rather have steady consistent points from each player that might not be in the 20+ range, but around 10 to 15 points weekly, rather than some players who might have HUGE weeks and then off weeks off and on. Those are the types of guys that give you headaches every year, because you never know when to start them and when not to.

I hope this helps.
