Building a championship team takes strategy, research, and intuition. Thinking that you have the retained knowledge to roll into your draft and execute without a plan is unintelligent. Especially with as little as 2 years in the game to this point. 

The fact that you are here looking to gain the edge in your league speaks volumes. Allow my course to help you walk into your draft with a well thought out, strategic game plan. 

   Here are a few highlights of what will be covered.

  1. Understanding what value means when drafting
  2. Understanding the importance of mock drafting before the season
  3. What materials you need to bring to your draft.
  4. What players you should not focus on regardless
  5. Understanding when to draft your QB's and TE's.
  6. Examining the deepest position available, and late round fliers
  7. Why drafting Kickers and Team Defense's should be last
  8. *Bonus Advice* with details on the most focused player people will seek to              draft this 2016 season

This course should take no more than 1 hour to digest, and is structured with the majority of power point presentations, along with limited video. The TAKEAWAY BONUS is a downloadable PDF that you can print and use as a reference even after you have taken the course. 

Taking this course will definitely sharpen your focus to build an effective strategy, and give you a few new tools to accelerate your knowledge level on how to approach each seasonal draft. This course does not disappoint primarily because in order to accomplish the bigger goal, you must set and execute smaller goals. The overall goal is to get you to the championship game, and WIN! 

Who is the target audience?
  • Rookie to intermediate fantasy football players who have 2 years or less playing within season long leagues.
  • Players with more than 2 years are encouraged to take to sharpen your focus and add to your strategy the value this course provides.

In 2009 I was invited to play in a fantasy football league by a fellow veteran because "They were short a player" and needed me to join to hold their draft that night. I knew nothing about it, but knew a lot of my friends and those I served with played fantasy football.

Luckily, I drew the first pick in the draft, and at the same time was conducting google searches for "best fantasy football players" in that upcoming season. I took Adrian Peterson of the Minnesota Vikings and went all the way to the championship that year as a rookie in 2009.

I love this game so much I want to share it with you. Instead of being like me, and jumping right into the frying pan, watch my course on the basics of fantasy football. If you already watch NFL football and understand the game, this is the course for you to finally get into the game!

There are additional courses to help you this upcoming 2017, but at a cost. The added benefit of taking my cost courses will be the direct communication you receive from me personally afterward. Many years in the Navy as a recruiter I enlisted men and women into the Navy, and kept in touch with them throughout their careers. I plan to treat my students here the same way!

Having led many Sailors over my 23 year career in the Navy I know how to simplify things and make them fun. Combining my 7 years of experience in fantasy football,  and as a member of the Fantasy Sports Trade Association (FSTA)  you have already more of an edge then when I did by learning on the fly.
