    From my experiences, that is not an option, or at least hasn't been for the last couple of years we have tried to do it.

    Every year for my draft I print out a tiered PPR cheat sheet. I usually use FFToday's cheatsheet. I noticed a huge difference in rankings between them and another site - Fantasypros.

    For instance, Christian McCaffrey is ranked 14 on Fantasy Pros and 25 on FFtoday. Pryor is ranked 16 on Fantasypros and 33 on FFToday.

    Which site do you guys find to have the best or most accurate cheatsheets?

    I like Fantasypros because they give you an average consensus among all the experts

    Cool, appreciate it. Thought the FFToday rankings had a few guys a little low.

    is it the same for you? Prestigious

    i think it depends on the league you're playing in. if there are other owners interested in a certain play you want, you'll have to adjust your strategy to fit that. i don't know if you listen to the espn fantasy focus podcast, but they always talk about how the drafts they do look different from a lot of others because the people participating frequently have similar philosophy regarding certain positions (so quarterbacks will go later than you might expect).

    it's also hard to gauge how players on new teams/new players will fit into those teams. it's probably safe to assume mccaffrey and pryor will be great fantasy players this year, but will they be the top options on their teams (or will guys like kelvin benjamin or jamison crowder take up a more significant target share, diluting their effectiveness in ppr scoring)? i imagine this probably accounts for the differences.

    i guess i'd think about your feelings re: the players you care about and find the sheet that seems to be the closest to your thoughts and strategy. there's always room for variation when you're drafting if something seems off.

    All great points. The league I play in, guys tend to take qbs early. At least 3 are always gone by the end of the 2nd round, which leaves alot of great wr/rb value.

    I was just thrown off by how varied some of the ratings were this year. But everyone's opinions are different.

    Should be fun. Good luck this year!

    first draft of the year...12 teams, 0.5 PPR. I kept Spencer Ware in the 10th round

    QB- Mariota, Prescott
    RB- Gurley, D. Cook, Ware, Jizz Rodgers, Jamaal Williams, A. Kamara
    WR- Jordy, ARob, Tyreek Hill, Devante Parker, Cooper Kupp
    TE- T. Eifert
    D/ST- Chiefs
    K- C. Santos

    aside from having too many Chiefs, I love this team so much

    So this is it...it's a half point PPR, I kept Crowell who took the place of my 4th round pick. I had the 11th pick. A few other guys were kept which bumped some dudes up in the draft.

    QB-)ak Prescott
    RB-Isiah Crowell
    RB-Spencer Ware
    WR-T.Y. Hilton
    WR-Dez Bryant
    TE-Martellus Bennett
    Flex-Tyreek Hill

    K-Caleb Sturgis
    D/ST-Eagles

    Bench-Kareem Hunt
    Bench-James White
    Bench-Mike Gillislee
    Bench-Marvin Jones
    Bench-Ben Roethlisburger
    Bench-Marlon Mack

    Basically went all in on high risk high reward WR's. They'll need to carry this team. I was going to snag Luck late so I ccould double dip with him and Hilton when he comes back, but he was picked the round before I was going to do it.

    All in on the RBBC's too. Hopefully will end up with two competent RB's after a few weeks.

    Marlon Mack is my sleeper. Hoping he emerges ASAP.

    Will be interesting to see how this plays out. I would not want this team personally but everyone has different hunches for sure. I DO like the potential upside of guys like Williams and Kamara, but not a big fan of your starters outside Jordy and one of those two QBs should play out well.

    Yeah you REALLY have to hope 2 of those RBs emerge as fantasy starter worthy. Hilton and Dez should be good for you though I will say Luck’s recovery has me a bit worried.

    PRetty much haha. I have a good feeling about Hunt emerging, and I figure after a couple weeks I'll have a better idea of what New England is going to do with their clusterfuck. But....it's gonna be a rough start to the season.

    The Luck story is just so weird to me...I didn't want to take Hilton because of it but there really wasn't someone else there I wanted more at that point.

    Good call. Spencer Ware just got carted off with a knee injury.

    Definitely considering Cooks in a different light now. I know has an entirely different receiver than Edelman, but still Cooks, Mitchell and Hogan's roles will all be enhanced if Edelman is lost for the season.

    I actually moved Gronk up substantially and am hoping to grab him at pick 16 in a draft tomorrow.

    I'm in a couple 10-team leagues again this year, but I'm also doing my first 12-team league and I'm nervous for that because I'm not quite sure I have a strategy in place for it and I'm not a fan of the 2nd or 3rd rounds right now
