    first time fantasy football player

    Like the title said I'm a 1st time fantasy football player and I was wondering typically when do you start drafting kickers and defense and how many do you draft in a standard league? Also when do QBs like Drew Brees, Brady and Manning go in the draft?

    • It all depends on what type of league you are playing in and how points are scored. However, in just about any league you play, Manning, Brady, and Brees are going to be gone before the end of the 2nd round. Kickers usually go near the end of the draft. Defenses are a little more hard to say because it really depends on your scoring system. But anywhere from mid round of draft to near the end. A good RB and a decent QB are crucial in most leagues. WR's are almost a dime a dozen. Here is a safe draft order but keep in mind you need to know your scoring system well to draft a competitive team. RB, RB, QB, WR, TE, DEF, WR, K.

    • In a 12 team league brady, brees, and manning will be gone by the end of the 2nd round. I would draft a kicker last and a defense is questionable, usually once you see the first defense picked several will go off. I would take running backs with my first two or three picks because they will carry you. I would wait for qbs with upside like shaub, ryan, rodgers etc..
