Best Ball: How to Approach the Late Rounds (2022 Fantasy Football)

If you lay the foundation for your team in the early rounds and then refine your team in the middle rounds, the final rounds are where we can add the final sprinkles to our rosters. This is the last part of a series looking into how to approach best ball drafts. You can find the first two parts here if you haven’t already.

By the final third of a draft, you should have a clear idea of what players you need and if you’re adhering to one of the many micro-strategies common within best ball. In this installment of the series, we’ll look at the following;

  • Late stacking opportunities
  • Late round best ball gems
