PF Daily: Fantasy Football Tutorial Series: Intermediate

Knowing your fellow owner tendencies

Back to Tutorial Series Index page


One of the ways to stay on the top of your fantasy league year after year is to understand and track your fellow owner's habits year to year. Obviously in a new league, this is not doable out of the gate although you can begin to get a book on each owner as the year goes on. However in a long running league, each owner will have his or her preferences in regard to the draft, trades, and free agency and knowing what they are liking to do gives an owner a huge step up on the competition.

THE FANTASY DRAFT

Knowing how your fellow owners draft can be a massive advantage in the draft. Every owner will have tendencies they follow throughout the years and understanding those nuances will help you to gauge when to pull the trigger on individual players and particular positions.

For example, in a league, Owner X likes to always start his draft with the stud running back approach. He has had three running backs on his roster through the first picks of his draft in each of the last six seasons. There is a very good chance he will continue to follow suit so you jot down notes that Owner X likes to target the running backs in first two rounds.

The next owner (call him Owner Pink) likes to always land a top-three quarterback for his roster. He has used a first or second round pick on a quarterback every season in the league. In fact, more specifically he has gone RB, QB, RB in the first three rounds in every draft. Jot down Owner Pink is likely to go RB, QB, RB and move on to next owner.

The final owner I will look at is Owner Brown. This owner is a little eccentric and he will often target Browns players early and often in the draft. By the mid point of the draft he is often being ridiculed for having multiple Browns on his team.

Putting the notes of the first few owners on the same page, multiple running backs will go off the board early, perhaps a Browns' player or two and an early quarterback. So trying to figure out which direction to take in round one, you can determine the best course of action to take. This is not an exact science but just another tool to get a step up on your league.

THE FANTASY TRADE

Next up is the fantasy trade. It is always fun to wheel and wheel with your fellow owners to try and fill holes on your roster. However all owners are very different in how they view trades.

One owner will be extremely tight and refuse to ever trade a player from his squad. Do not waste your time on this owner has it will rarely work out and even if he does trade with you, he will rarely give up quality to get quality.

A different type of owner may be extremely fair to you and himself, wanting the best deal to make both teams better. This is not common but this owner will make for a really nice draft partner and often a deal will be worked out with little stress and angst.



Another owner may be into trading but he is only concerned with dominating the trade by giving crap to get diamonds. This owner can be talked down from his lofty expectations but it can be frustrating a take awhile to get a deal going.

Some owners will be more likely to trade than others and some are easier to deal with so knowing these owners' tendencies will without question save you time and energy and help find the perfect draft partner for your needs.

FREE AGENCY

Having a book on an owner's free agent habits can help you target a player at the right time. Some owners rarely use the free agent system, others wheel and deal on it each week and others add players with upside at particular positions such as running back. If you have two players you like, knowing your fellow owners' preferences in posting for free agents can help you determine who to request first and who can wait. This is not as clear cut as the first two categories but any small kernel of knowledge can help you have success in fantasy football.
