Win-in-Year Two Approach Startup Strategy (2022 Fantasy Football)

Win-in-Year Two Approach Startup Strategy (2022 Fantasy Football)

What’s the correct way to approach your startup dynasty draft? There is not a right answer; there is only not having a plan. Before you start your draft, be aware of a few things. One, is it a slow draft with an eight-hour or longer timer or a quick draft with a two-minute timer. Two, can you make trades during the draft? How far into the future can you trade rookie picks? Usually, startup dynasty drafts are slow and allow you to trade future picks three years out. However, always make sure you know the rules before you start. Three, make sure you know what the starting lineup requirements are, the number of bench spots, the scoring system, and if there will be a taxi squad. These four things could impact how you draft.

After you know the rules of your draft, you have to determine your strategy. Some players like to compete early on, while others take a longer-term approach. The last thing you want to do is go into the draft with the mindset of “winging it.” The fastest way to lock your team in mediocrity for the next several years is by doing so. My favorite strategy is the win in year two approach. You spend the startup draft and the first year focused on the future. Then, you start competing in year two. Let’s look at what you need to do during the startup draft with this strategy.
