Jeff Ratcliffe pulls back the curtain and breaks down his strategy and thought process in a recent industry fantasy football mock draft. Topics include: why pick 1.06 is problematic right now, shifting gears early on based on what the draft throws at you, paying attention to what your opponents are doing, what to do if you only draft one running back in the first four rounds, why Rounds 6-8 are the sweet spot for tight ends, waiting at quarterback has never been easier, unsexy values, and more.
The Rant with Jeff Ratcliffe
Jeff Ratcliffe breaks down everything you need to know about wide receivers in your 2020 fantasy football drafts. Topics include: the problem with zero-RB and how to use it to your advantage, why Michael Thomas is in play a pick 1.02, the elite tire of wideouts at the end of the first round, early-round values, Calvin Ridley is this year’s “it” guy and why drafting him at ADP could be a mistake, unsexy names who will likely fall in your drafts, and late-round upside to target.
In the inaugural episode of The Rant, Jeff Ratcliffe kicks things off with some thoughts on whether the NFL season will start on time and breaks down why Jalen Reagor won’t lead the Eagles in receptions, but could at least have the most catches among Philly wideouts.
Jeff then breaks down his 2020 fantasy football draft strategy for running backs. Topics include: the elite tier of running backs, overvalued players in the early rounds, what to do about Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon, the value dropoff in the middle rounds, who to target after Round 6, and why drafting running backs in the late rounds is a suboptimal strategy.
