Best Tips for the Fantasy Draft in Franchise

Before heading into the Tips, make sure to open the customize section and change the Starting Point to Fantasy Draft.

Now, for the Fantasy Draft you can pick older players for the sake of competition so you can have the best team for a single season, build your quarterback or you can pick younger players and develop them and grow them instead.

The best and the highly recommended tip is to mix up the players. Meaning, pick experienced players as well as younger talent so you can manage them properly.

As for a decent quarterback, pick players from the Top 15 since the best quarterback are found in that range.

Focus more on your Quarterbacks as compared to the other positions since the Quarterback is an extremely valuable position therefore you must focus on it more than any other position.

There’s an option on top of the player selection in the Sort category called the Development Tr.

This option finds one of the best players that are hidden from the player selection menu who have amazing stats and overall are good players.

You must remember to differentiate players while Scouting Superstar X-Factors.

For example, a player from the Middle linebacker with an overall 90 is really different from a Middle linebacker with an overall 70.

Both of these players have different abilities despite being in the same position.
