Tips to help fantasy managers have a successful 2023 draft.

One of the season’s biggest questions is whether to invest in one of the elite quarterbacks or to look to find value later. Twelve of the top 18 all-time fantasy seasons at this position were delivered over the past five years, so there’s a strong case to be made to take one of the stars.

Quarterback Advice

If you do opt to wait on a quarterback, there’s still some solid choices in the later rounds.

Running Back Advice

Running back has been devalued in the NFL, and that’s somewhat reflective in the fantasy landscape, with fewer automatic fantasy RB1s available and more committees to sift through.

About the only thing that everyone agrees on is Christian McCaffrey is the top back. After that, player rankings and strategy is up for debate.

Wide Receiver Advice

The position is just so rich with quality players at all levels of NFL rosters. The fantasy football space has reacted. Wideouts are being selected earlier than ever. It would have been unthinkable five years ago that this many wide receivers had consensus ADPs in Round 1 (currently five on Yahoo).

There are five receivers with first-round ADPs on Yahoo.
