Positional Allocation 101

Positional allocation in best ball leagues will first depend on the platform of choice. Different providers will have premiums places on certain positions. For example, FFPC uses a tight end premium scoring system, elevating the importance of the position. This will subsequently change how to value various positions and how many draft spots to dedicate to them.

Positional allocation should also ebb and flow throughout the draft. For example, if spending first round draft capital on Travis Kelce, the rest of a best ball roster can probably get by with just one more tight end. Meanwhile, a different team taking a late round tight end approach could benefit from selecting three. In general, placing an additional weight on positions drafted early and selecting more of positions drafted later can provide the optimal blend of upside and security.

Lastly, make sure to account for byes. Without the ability to add and drop in-season, accidentally taking two quarterbacks with the same bye could make the difference in winning a league or taking second. This strategy applies primarily to quarterbacks and tight ends, but also defenses and kickers on certain platforms.

I'm a wannabe athlete whose athletic career ended after a long tenure riding the bench through JV baseball. The fantasy sports and sports betting degen side of me blossomed at age 12 when I found fantasy baseball and football, and led to a 12-year submergence into the poker scene -- I started playing "secret" cash games in my parents' basements by age 14. Luckily, I've finally found what I love to do -- write about "fake sports," which my girlfriend refers to it as, though it only took me until age 30. If you decide you like the words I write and follow me on Twitter (@nd_joyce), I apologize in advance for the copious amounts of dog photos you will see.
