Synopsis
"Fantasy Football for Smart People: How to Dominate Your Draft" is in-depth fantasy football draft strategy. The aim of the book is to provide advanced material for experienced fantasy football owners and "bottom line" analysis for novices. The book is not a collection of player rankings or projections, but rather an assessment of various draft strategies and fantasy football tenants. It will provide a solid foundation from which you can improve as an owner to dominate your draft.
