I play in a PPR 12-man league but I believe this question applies to standard leagues as well.
I know there are many draft strategies: Zero RB, Zero WR, BPA, Value selection, etc, etc. But here's my question:
Does anyone draft with the intention of filling out their starting lineup right away with the exception of kicker, defense, and maybe QB? My league starting format is 1QB 2RB 2WR 1TE with one flex spot for RB/WR/TE.
The disadvantage of using this strategy is that it may cost you some quality depth at RB and WR but you're starters should be very strong and competitive at the start of the season to win games for you. The con is bye-weeks and injuries could derail your season quickly however if your really proactive on the waiver wire you should be able to find quality depth especially at the beginning of the season.
I'm curious to know if anyone has used this strategy in the past and if so, did it work out for you?
