welcome to the athleticThe fourth annual fantasy football draft kit!

Here’s what you can expect to find in our preseason coverage of the upcoming fantasy football campaign. (Note: If this “what to expect!” kind of preview bores you, skip right to the menu part below):

  1. let’s start with a lot of Jake Sky. With his track record of elite expert accuracy (fun fact: when we asked him to send us an overview of this introduction, he sent us a very large and detailed spreadsheet outlining his achievements going back a decade), Jake is has established himself as one of the best minds in fantasy football. And his mind can now be yours, just download his fully customizable cheat sheet, enter your league settings and it will throw up a custom series of rankings and projections. Bonus: If you hate Jake, you can adjust his projections to your liking and after run the spreadsheet for your rankings.
  2. We lean more than ever on our best-in-class NFL Rhythm and National Writers. They have a front row seat to all the developments on and off the NFL field. Being able to leverage your insights is just another way we’re helping you gain an edge over your non-subscribing competition.
  3. Of course you can count on our multitude of expert voices to weigh in on all things sleepers, busts, and breakouts, plus extensive offerings of advanced stats and strategy pieces. We’ve got dynasty players/goalkeepers covered all the way around, with Dynasty League soccer guru Jeff Haverlack leading a group that includes our go-to guy Ciely, scouting genius Brandon Howard, a dynasty trading chart by Alex Korff (aka u/peakedinhighskool on Reddit) and resident NFL draft expert Dane Brugler (check out his best college players to watch before next year’s draft).
