Many inexperienced or poor dynasty owners who don’t watch film or look at injury history and advanced metrics like Breakout Age and Dominator Rating (especially in IDP leagues) go into their rookie draft with one resource. This one resource is the NFL Draft, and these owners will take whoever was the highest taken player in the NFL Draft at the position of their need or highest overall player if they are going BPA. Not to say this is a bad strategy, NFL Draft capital is one of the most predictive measures for future NFL success and is one of the major things I personally take into account when I am making my pick at a rookie draft, but there’s more to it than just how high the player was chosen. I will trust a NFL teams analysis of a player more than my own, they spend much more time, money and resources on scouting and trying to find who is the best player to take for their team than I do for my teams, but there is other things that are much more important for fantasy analysis that NFL teams don’t consider because they are not playing fantasy football, and the NFL Draft shouldn’t be the only thing you use when making picks for rookie drafts especially in IDP with positional importance and scoring indifference.
