Fantasy Football Draft Board 2010

Fantasy Football Draft Board 2010

Knowing how to prepare your own draft board is a big part of having fantasy football success. You can buy magazines with their own lists and draft boards, you can even find this information for free online, but doing a little bit of research on your own and building your own draft board guarantees you full control over your fantasy roster.

How to Build a Fantasy Football Draft Board

Putting together your own draft board means thinking about a few different draft strategies. If you go into your fantasy draft with just one player ranking list, you’re not going to have a good draft. Why?

What if you draw the first pick in the draft? Who will you pick? You probably already have that answer — most likely it will be RB Chris Johnson or QB Aaron Rodgers. Alright, smart-guy, what will you do if you draw the last pick? Do you really have any idea what order the other players on your ranking list will go?
Fantasy Football Draft Board 2010Putting together multiple lists for your draft is important. You should draw up no less than three possible draft boards to be prepared. One if you draft early (first, second, or third), one if you draft late (the bottom three picks in the first round), and another if you draft anywhere in the middle. Since you know what order you’ll draft in after your first round (most drafts follow a pattern of drafting after the first round order has been established) then you can then strategize based on your next pick. For example, if you draft last, you’ll most likely earn two picks in a row — the last pick of the first round and the first pick of the second round.

Fantasy Draft Board — Drafting Early

In 2010, an early draft pick means you just have to select one of a handful of players. Since you won’t have another pick until towards the end of round two, the first or second pick in the draft is really important. In most fantasy leagues, you’ll want to pick a RB or a QB.

If you draft in one of the first three slots of your 2010 fantasy football draft, you should probably select one of the following:

Chris Johnson, RB, Tennessee

Aaron Rodgers, QB, Green Bay

Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota

Maurice Jones-Drew, RB, Jacksonville

Fantasy Draft Board — Drafting Late

A late draft pick can be a blessing in disguise. If you pick last, you’ll essentially have to picks in a row. If you pick last in your 2010 fantasy football draft, you should plan to make one of the following selections. Provided are draft picks for both the first and second round.

First round – Reggie Wayne, WR, Indianapolis

Second round – Shonn Greene, RB, New York Jets

First round – Peyton Manning, QB Indianapolis

Second round – Minnesota Defense

First round – DeAngelo Williams, RB, Carolina

Second round- Calvin Johnson, WR, Detroit

Fantasy Draft Board — Drafting in the Middle

A draft pick in the middle of the first round can be frustrating. You may not get a shot at one of the top five players, and your second pick seems forever awau. If you pick in the middle in your 2010 fantasy footballd raft, consider one of the following picks.

Steven Jackson, RB, St. Louis

Drew Brees, QB, New Orleans

Randy Moss, WR, New England

Frank Gore, RB, San Francisco

Michael Turner, RB, Atlanta

Here’s the beginnings of some draft boards for different fantasy football leagues. Use these to put together your own draft board.

Standard Fantasy Football Draft Board, Head to Head

This draft board gives you the top five picks at each position for a standard scoring league with a head to head competition format. The standard fantasy football scoring rules are meant to give equal weight to all positions, and use a team defense rather than individual defensive stats. This is the most popular format for fantasy football.


Drew Brees, NO

Aaron Rodgers, GB

Peyton Manning, IND

Tom Brady, NE

Matt Schaub, HOU


Chris Johnson, TN

Adrian Peterson, MIN

Maurice Jones-Drew, JAC

Frank Gore, SF

Michael Turner, ATL


Andre Johnson, HOU

Randy Moss, NE

Larry Fitzgerald, ARI

Reggie Wayne, IND

Miles Austin, DAL


Dallas Clark, IND

Antonio Gates, SD

Jermichael Finley, GB

Vernon Davis, SF

Tony Gonzales, ATL


Nate Kaeding, SD

Stephen Gostkowski, NE

Ryan Longwell, MIN

Rob Bironas, TN

David Akers, PHI


New York Jets

Philadelphia Eagles

Green Bay Packers

Baltimore Ravens

Dallas Cowboys

Standard Fantasy Football Draft Board, Rotisserie

This draft board gives you the top five picks at each position for a standard scoring league with a rotisserie format. The standard fantasy football scoring rules are meant to give equal weight to all positions, and use a team defense rather than individual defensive stats. Rotisserie format simply means that your players accumulate stats in a variety of different statistical categories, and those stats are added to your category totals as the season progresses. Each stat is awarded a number of points depending on what position you finish in. A standard fantasy football rotisserie league with 12 players will award 12 points for each top finish, down to just one point for finishing last. The tournament champion is determined by aggregate stats rather than head to head performance.

This ranks NFL players by potential reward in a rotisserie league. Rather than rank them by position, we’re showing you a draft board of the top fifty players for a rotisserie fantasy football league.
