Empire League Cheat Sheet 1.0

Author Scott Fish

The Empire League Cheat Sheet is back! Well, it’s back, but different… kind of like when they switched the daughter on Roseanne.

In previous years this cheat sheet was done differently. I will likely change how it is done going forward, but for now I used a combination of several dynasty average draft positions with some redraft average draft positions in a weighted formula. In Empire leagues, the goal is to build a team that can win two years in a row. Projecting players further than three years out is an absolute fool’s errand. With this in mind, the below chart is a combination of dynasty and redraft values focused on the short term, but more than just this year. This will be a work in progress going forward, but for now… here is a good starting point!
