How the NFL Draft Can Impact Your Fantasy Team

The 2016 NFL draft is about to excite many fans, giving home to many teams who ranked at the bottom of the 2016 standings. While there is a sharp learning curve in the NFL and a high rate of failure for rookies, the NFL draft does have a big impact on fantasy players.

 

Both rookies and existing players are impacted by the NFL draft. Rookies are of course new players who are joining the league with varying expectations. For an observant fan, it can be a way to pick up a top player and contributor cheaply for your fantasy team. This is of double importance for a keeper league.

 

Existing players are also impacted. If you are eyeing a wide receiver who’s team suddenly picks up a stud qb in the draft their fortunes can quickly change. If, alternatively, you have a rookie running back drafted the existing running back can see a cut in their carries and significant drop in their fantasy production. Understanding the rookies and their impact on existing players is something that is important to pay attention to, but incredibly challenging to understand and predict.
