Best Ball Strategy: How to Approach the Early Rounds (2023 Fantasy Football)

Best Ball Strategy: How to Approach the Early Rounds (2023 Fantasy Football)

In the early rounds of best-ball drafts, it’s critical that you come prepared with an optimal and flexible approach. It’s less about deciding which players are good/bad (they are being drafted at the top of the board for a reason, after all) and more about building a strong foundation for success that sets the standard for your roster throughout the draft. Thinking about your player targets in Round 2 should already be on your mind before you make your selection in Round 1.

The biggest question entering the 2023 best-ball season will undoubtedly be a debate between going RB, WR, QB(!?), or Travis Kelce in Round 1 and how that impacts your drafts in the remaining early rounds. Obviously, your randomized draft slot will make the decision easier for some that are rewarded the 1.01 or 1.02 – as this may be your only opportunity to gain exposure to players with the highest ADPs – but after that, I expect plenty of variance throughout the first round.
