Fast forward a few months: You’ve just returned from a relaxing late summer vacation when you realize your ESPN Fantasy Football league draft is tomorrow!
You are panicked. So you cram.
You scour through various player rankings and ratings, position depth charts, mock draft projections, Matthew Berry’s Draft Day Manifesto and Love/Hate columns, Tristan Cockcroft’s position rankings, Stephania Bell’s injury insights, etc.
You listen intently to Fantasy Focus Football and other ESPN podcasts. You watch all of ESPN’s fantasy football and NFL news and analysis, available daily. Suddenly, your panic turns to expertise, which results in an awesome draft for the 2016 season.
Now, return to May 2016. That’s when all that information and expert analysis began: at the ESPN Fantasy Football Town Hall and Rankings Summit in Bristol, Conn. Many of ESPN’s pro football experts convened to discuss, argue and generally share the opinions that ultimately lead to your fantasy football expertise. The video above takes you inside the process.
