4th Commandment – Thou Shall Draft Players From the NEXT Great Offenses
Here at FFChamps we already told you to avoid players on bad teams. We also like to draft players from good teams. Taking it one step further, we also really look to draft players from the NEXT great offenses.
Hindsight is 20/20 and with hindsight everyone's a genius. I can sit here and tell you to load up on players from New Orleans and New England. Let's not forget about Green Bay and Detroit. Everyone knows that stuff. Brees, Brady, Rodgers, Gronk and Megatron are on everyone's radar, not to mention all of the other studs we left out. Where is your edge? What will separate you? You can separate yourself by being a prognosticator and not a follower (or let us do that for you).
If you can successfully pinpoint the next great offenses you don't have to worry about luck or rely on a few super sleepers to come to fruition in order for you to win your league. If you can project the NEXT great offenses, you will be able to identify the Sleepers, they just will be obvious to you. Other guys say “I'd rather be lucky than good”; here at FF Champs, we say “WE'D RATHER BE GOOD THAN LUCKY!” You can put the odds in your favor by taking guys from the next great offenses.
If this sounds time consuming, it is. You have to pour through stats and analyze a lot of different variables -- the good news is that we do it all for you in the FFChamps Draft Kit.
Who are the next great offenses?
These squads have already taken the step toward greatness or are about to: Falcons, Giants, Titans, Panthers, Broncos, Bears, Chiefs, Texans, Redskins, and the Eagles
