Your Draft Plan: First three picks in 10-team leagues

David Dorey, @DMDorey

This is a sample draft using the current Huddle rankings and what we suggest at each pick. The names are less important than the positions because each draft slot will have its own unique situation. Just as important is what you plan on doing with your future picks and what you must do given where you are at after three rounds. Below uses the three main types of drafts.

Performance Scoring (Non PPR) Leagues - 1/10 rush and receive yards, 1/20 pass yards, TD = 6 except pass = 4.

Point Per Reception (PPR) Leagues - Same as Performance but with one point per reception.

QB Heavy Leagues - Assumes QBs are significantly more valuable than other positions and/or you can start two of them.

A league of 10 means more good players to go around than a 12 team - figure the first 60 players yield five per team in a 12 team league but six for a 10 team league. So there are better players and position depth lasts at least slightly longer. You still want a balanced team but everyone should have a good team. You need elite play makers to win more games than in a 12 team league. A little less worry about getting good starters in every position - that should happen anyway. You worry less about depth because the waiver wire is going to be better than in a 12 team league or bigger. You definitely want difference makers for starters.

Performance Scoring (Non PPR) Leagues

The scoring here doesn't have reception points so quarterbacks and running backs are the top scorers. Wide receivers are not too far behind and the elite will match top running backs. Tight ends are all the same after the Top 3 are gone. If you leave the first three rounds without two running backs you should have a good reason.
