The perfect draft.
It is something that was rumored to have happened only once before back in the late 1990’s by a Brazilian named Rohan, who also happened to save the world from the Y2K epidemic just a few years later.
But for the rest of us the perfect draft is something we have only dreamed of while staring at our computer screens pretending to work.
One of the goals we all have as we sit down for our fantasy football drafts each year is to make every pick a homerun. Of course outside of the great Rohan, this never actually happens but we still dare to dream.
Since a perfect draft is more rare than spotting Bigfoot, I thought it would be fun to chase down that perfect draft in today’s article.
So what would a perfect draft look like? Let’s go step by step to find out. For this exercise I have awarded myself the fourth overall pick in a 12 team PPR league. The draft will be a snake format consisting of 16 rounds. I’ll highlight the early rounds and give a play by play account of what I am looking for as I build my team and how it all just so happens to work out. For the later rounds I will just list my own selection and give a recap of how it played out in my favor.
Let’s get to it.
