    can you guys do a podcast or explain in your next podcast the reasoning behind using the standard cheatsheet for a .5ppr league. the meatheads on CBSSPORTS podcast just said people should use full ppr rankings when preparing for a .5ppr draft. obviously im listening to my rosterwatch peeps over those clowns.

    1. sure, although we think you can use the PPR cheat sheet in half-point PPR, I personally do.

      1. Sooooo, you’re saying it’s fine if we used the PPR cheat sheet for 1/2PPR leagues? I just noticed today that is a 1/2PPR format. Use the standard/.5 sheet….OR the PPR sheet? Thanks

        1. Post By Byron Lambert

          Guys, what I can add- from designing the Standard sheet to dominate both standard and .5 ppr – is that ADPs are very similar between the two formats, which should be the determining factor in choosing the sheet you utilize.

          I’m extraordinarily confident recommending the standard sheet for your .5 ppr drafts.

    I just analyzed my dynasty team vs the SOS Wr matrix, and I appear to have been handed a crap hand this year !

    My 2 dynasties WRS:
    Team 1
    AROB – 6th worst Sched
    Evans – 9th worst
    Diggs – 3rd worst

    Team 2
    Evans -9th worst
    Adams – WORST
    Garcon -7th worst
    M Thomas – 10th worst

    At what point do you divorce the stud from the SOS ?
    I am trying to trade adams for keenan allen right now ( I may have to throw in hurns to make it happen )
    -Would you trade adams for JuJu + ?
    or am I going a little too maniacal ?

    Cameron Heyward


    and Hurns

    what sayeth ?>

    1. At what point do you divorce the stud from the SOS ?

      BVIC – you HAVE to always divorce the talent from the matchups; the matchups are only to be used as food for thought as a tie breaker.

      With this said, I’m very interested in getting Keenan Allen – he’s the best player in that deal so I wouldn’t mind seeing you take it. It is all about how much faith you have in Foreman coming off of Achilles. I don’t know one RB that’s ever come back strong from that injury. With this said, I love D’Onta. I just worry.

  3. I will check out the difference between .5 and full point for you guys this year in yahoo leagues for sure and see what is closer. What changes there are between wr#1 through wr#20 our rosterwatch league is full point and public yahoo leagues will be .5 points this year

  4. Oh this is Juan Rosa btw 🙂

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Thank you so much Juan. You’re the man! We appreciate your support tremendously.

  5. am I overlooking, or do you offer a cheat sheet for .5pt PPR? (based on other comments, the answer is NO). Furthermore, do you offer customization cheat sheets (I have alternative scoring rules, but mainly .5pt PPR). ie: .5pt PPR, but TE receives 1pt PPR.

    Our league scoring also receives splash points for TD’s of various lengths and players that gain 100yd+ or throw for 300yd+, but I do not draft or covet based on that…how can I? Let me know if you feel differently.

    Thx for clarifying SoS…divorce from the player/stud and use as a tiebreaker.

    Happy to be a subscriber of RW Nation

      Use the standard sheet for .5 ppr. If you want you can push the TEs up a tiny bit, give your scoring system.

      Your big play scoring would only be tie breaker for me between say somebody like Ty Hilton vs Doug Baldwin. I’d want Hilton in your system.

      Thank you so much for your loyal support. Cheers to a great season!

    Any thoughts on this mini DFS slate Thursday? Looks like they stole your champion idea. Figure I should test my luck.

  7. Post By LukeTakesShip

    I’m doing some mock drafts with 10 team standard leagues and if i follow sheet to the “T” i end up with no QB,TE,DEF, or K. I’m open to this strategy as my league has 8 teams play in playoffs, so wins early on dont matter as much. Throwing around idea of taking L first week with huge roster of backups to trade away and stream those missing positions 2nd week.. Thoughts?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      Thanks Luke, see my answer to TClemen below for some more insight. I’d say in 10 team leagues I could care less about QB or TE or Def.

      If you want, for a 10 tm league you cld manually push the QBs and TEs up the sheet a bit in the late rounds. I’d prob pass entirely and keep collecting skill position depth and just matchup play the waiver wire for your QB/TE/DEF to begin the season

  8. One thing to consider is to use their cheat sheet for the top 50 players in the draft..draw a line…fill out your best Qb and Te if its close. But their sheet fills you with awesome bench players for a game that is filled with injuries and wr and rb always gives more points. Just have to adjust and recognize pools of areas of talent. I like to see what rounds are acceptable according to the cheat sheet for taking a qb or te. Standard has you take them in fifth and sixth mainly. After that its the 12th through 20th for standard. In ppr its more in the 7-13 range. Every draft is different but especially in 10 team leagues I dont’ worry about QB,Def, or Kicker. And find out what Te you want and go for it sometimes.

    1. Post By LukeTakesShip

      yeah i feel you on that. It’s just tough because i don’t know what size league they are tailoring the cheat sheet for. In a 10 team league, you likely wont end up with a QB or TE using the strict rules on the sheet. Sheet might need some guidance on what to do based on league size.

    This may seem like a stupid question but here goes. I am drafting 12th in a 14 team standard rules redraft. This is my first time using the cheat sheet. I did a couple of mocks last night, and both times-strictly following the cheat sheet rules- I ended up with 5 WRs with my 1st 5 picks. I’m guessing I’m doing it wrong. At what point do you recommend deviating for positional needs?

    1. Post By Byron Lambert

      That’s wild. If anything all the simulations we ran to test it were a tad bit RB heavy. The sheet is tested most vs 12 team drafts to kind of split the baby between 10,12,14 teamers.

      I’d be surprised if this happened in your real draft or in multiple mocks. Remember to never go too far of the reservation but to exercise some basic discretion. I’d say if that happened to me I would’t be worried until I took 3 wr in a row. Depenind on you risk tolerance, I’d say after you’ve taken 2 WR in RD1 and RD2 then make an executive decision to balance your roster as long as the next RB on the sheet is at least close to the next WR.

      Guys, also please remember it is very early and there is still a ton of variance among ADPs. Things will continue to come into focus over next few weeks.

      I used the cheat sheet last year in a 16 team money league(will do it again this year) and my first 4 picks were wide receivers. Was I a little worried with it being a deep league? Yes, but I had the depth, trade tools, and waiver wire to finagle my way to the playoffs (even picking up wins in weeks where Andy Dalton gave me a goose egg and negative). 2nd best overall record, got gurly’d in the playoffs but won my other two leagues. Trust the sheet and make sure you’re always using the most current one. Drafting is key, but transaction are what wins it

    i am a second year pro member and i have to admit last year i was nervous about using the cheatsheet and detoured around it which pretty much screwed up my team. i learned my lesson and plan on using it this year without breaking the 3 rules. my only issue is in my mocks im ending up with like 8-9 wr’s and not soo many rb’s and not drafting a qb or te at all… is it ok you break away from the rules later in the draft to fill voids. such as evening off my wr/rb ratio? im not worried about a qb ive been getting rivers, luck, mariota in the 14th which im fine with. #rwn4life

  11. Why do you consider half point PPR the same as standard on the draft cheat sheet?

  12. Post By

    Where did the best ball cheat sheet go?

    Cheers guys

  13. I have the 1st pick in a start-up Dynasty draft, full PPR.

    Who should I take?

    Thanks guys!

  14. I used the cheat sheet nearly perfect last year and nailed all my drafts! (I love when I get “D” and “C” scores from Yahoo Draft Grades, btw lol)
    Anyhow, last year was my BEST Fantasy season by far! I was in the Championship in 7 of my 12 leagues!! Obv, the drafts were only part of that, but it was def the best I had ever drafted. If I were only going to subscribe to 1 site, it would be this one if only for that cheat sheet. Its incredible!

  15. Keeper question:
    I have Leveon Bell, Antonio Brown and Kareem Hunt. We have two keepers this year, which would replace picks 1.01 and 2.12.

    The question: do not overthink it and keep Bell and Brown. Or propose a trade to the Ezekiel Elliott owner offering Hunt and either Bell or Brown (Elliott is his only viable keeper). Theoretically, this would allow me to diversify my top two players. Is it the best play, though?

    Thoughts? Thanks in advance for any comments.

    1. Only week you might be worried about is their bye week, so you should take that into consideration in your draft. you’re giving up too much if you trade either and hunt for elliott.
