We conclude strategy week on the pod with a deep dive into everything you need to know for salary cap drafts. Scott Pianowski, the ultimate expert in salary cap drafts, joins Matt Harmon on the pod to let you know the strategies you have to consider going into your draft.
But first, the two react to all the latest injury news at the WR position including the top two targets in Detroit. The two then debate if Titan’s WR Treylon Burks is still draftable after his knee injury. The two then debate if the Dolphins are the most fragile team in the league after the injury scare to LT Terron Armstead. The two also try to make sense of the on going drama taking place in Indy with RB Jonathan Taylor.
Pianowski and Harmon then explain everything you need to know about salary cap drafts and what makes them fundamentally different from snake drafts. Pianowski then shares the top strategies and hacks that one can use to maximize their budget and player pool during salary cap drafts.
The two end the show with our ‘Build your team’ segment by debating if you should prioritize decent players on good offenses over star players on bad offenses in the draft.
