ESPN+ subscribers obtain exclusive access to fantasy football tools and tips found on ESPN.com
Every year the Worldwide Leader in Sports publishes ESPN Senior Writer Adam Schefter’s personal “Friends and Family” cheat sheet. Before this list was published online, it was only shared with Schefter’s close friends and family (hence the name), and now ESPN+ subscribers get exclusive access to it. Schefter breaks down players by position and groups them as Strong, Sleeper or Value picks to give subscribers insight on who to draft and when to select them. Getting advice from the former president of the Pro Football Writers of America can go a long way for your fantasy football team like a deep pass in blown coverage.
If the players on Schefter’s list have been taken off the board before you get a chance to pick, then you’re in luck. ESPN+ subscribers also get exclusive access to Mike Clay’s Ultimate Draft Board. Unlike Schefter’s cheat sheet, Clay’s draft board has a full breakdown in extensive detail on what players to take and in which round to select them. The founding director of Pro Football Focus Fantasy has a lot of nuggets and gems that can help your fantasy team reign supreme.
To help you avoid red flags like a challenge on the field, ESPN+ subscribers also get exclusive access to Eric Karabell’s Do Draft and Do Not Draft lists. As a charter member of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association Hall of Fame, Karabell’s an expert of all things fantasy football. Combining his list with the other 2 mentioned above will give your fantasy team an unparalleled advantage when you play amongst your friends this season.
During the season, Tristan H. Cockcroft breaks down favorable and unfavorable matchups each week with his Matchup Maps column. The ESPN+ exclusive gives fantasy football team owners a look into who to bench and who to start based on player’s available statistical data. Cockcroft narrows down each player based on their position group, so it’ll be easy for you to configure your lineup accordingly.
For those that would rather listen to analytics when drafting players instead of the experts, ESPN+ gives you full access to the ESPN+ Draft Value Generator. This tool can be utilized to do a number of different things to make sure you have a fantasy football team that will lead you to victory. For those that play in a salary cap league, the ESPN+ Draft Value Generator is unique because it combines ESPN’s fantasy projections with Rotowire.com dollar value formula. This creates a personalized ranking and dollar values for your fantasy football salary cap draft to help you stay under your league’s cap. Combine that with the Lineup Recommender, and Free Agent Recommender tools on ESPN.com, and your fantasy football team can be the best team on the field since the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins.
