Dynasty Rookies: Talent vs Situation

The NFL Draft has come and gone, and dynasty rookie draft season is upon us. What starts off feeling like Christmas morning for a kid, can quickly turn into anxiety and grief when on the clock. Nowadays it seems you’ll hear or see every type of strategy possible, while every player looks good on someone’s random metric chart. In what has almost become information overload, it can sometimes be challenging to make up your mind when you’re finally drafting a player. How can it be so burdensome after spending all that time researching, listening to podcasts, and building your rankings, you ask? That question brings us back to the NFL Draft.

Every year dynasty managers fall in love with players throughout the offseason. As soon as the Super Bowl ends, we start diving into these prospects(as a devy and C2C player, it’s well before that), and by April we already know exactly which teams the players should go to. The only problem is we’re not a part of these NFL front offices, and they don’t pick players like we want them to. In fact, a lot of the time, our favorite players can go to bad landing spots, while the bad players land in perfect situations.

That brings us to the age-old question, should we draft for talent or situation? The short answer(and the cop-out) is both, but I promise we’ll dive deeper than that! Even though it seems to get forgotten each and every year, we have the benefit of hindsight and the ability to look back at previous classes to find our answers.
