Drafting a fantasy team can be a complicated tactical undertaking, but underneath the layers of strategy, there are two primary objectives:
- Draft high-achievers
- Avoid underachievers
I’ve always found the second objective easier than the first. It can be tricky to identify players on the verge of a breakout or a level jump. Red flags stand out. Hidden gems are tougher to spot.
But avoiding underachievers is critical to your success. If you can dodge the land mines and snare traps, removing them from your pool of draftable players, you’ll improve your chances of drafting a high-achieving player with each of your picks.
Here are 10 players I’m avoiding in my 2023 fantasy drafts.
