How to Draft From the 1.11 Pick (2022 Fantasy Football)
PREMIUM

Travis Kelce

Travis Kelce will once again go off the board at the end of the first or beginning of the second round of fantasy drafts this season.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of this draft spot?

The advantage of drafting from the 1.11 spot, similar to 1.10, is that the talent pool doesn’t drop off by a significant margin as we land on 1.11. Everybody will have their own tiers and they’re far from a consensus after we get past Jonathan Taylor at 1.01. It’s also advantageous to know that you will select again three picks later. You can view the picks as a pair and strategize around who you believe will go in between.

The disadvantage to this spot is that you must play the board as it falls rather than being in control. That especially comes into play as it gets tougher to find a top-level RB the deeper the draft gets. Picking from a smaller group of worthy first-round players is less than ideal.

Do you have a certain strategy when picking at 1.11 in 2022?

The overall strategy doesn’t shift much from 1.10 with the anchor RB strategy, but it becomes tougher to execute in this spot. As we get closer to the second round, however, you can reverse engineer the picks. Consider who will be available and who you want to take at 2.03 and strategize around the two picks together.
