We are here in the middle of April and I've already completed seven MFL10's and eight drafts, both live and slow, on RT Sports. Some may view this as overkill; I've even heard this early drafting be called a "sickness".
Why is is fantasy football in April viewed as negative? Sure, we are still a few weeks away from the NFL Draft. Heck, the NFL schedule isn't out yet. In this period of the year, there are many unknowns. Fantasy football drafts at this time of the year are huge gambles.
But that is exactly why we do it. The thrill of YOUR unknown sleepers becoming big NFL stars and carrying you to a championship. Seeing YOUR rookie picks blossom into functional NFL players. You are pretty much picking YOUR guys, and it makes us happy.
The whole process of drafting is simply so much fun for me. Looking at ADP lists from different websites, looking for value in each and every draft pick, and taking "my guy" before anyone even thinks about him, all adds to the fun and satisfaction of drafting early in the year.
Are the teams we draft in April going to be winners cashing out in December? Are they worth the investment? Maybe, or maybe not. But for right now, I'm VERY HAPPY with the teams I've drafted so far. I'm sure other folks like me with "the sickness" are also very happy with the teams they drafted this early. Happiness makes the world go around :)
Next stop, NFL Draft. See you then! -- Mark, @ff_inferno

Welcome to the INFERNO Fantasy Football blog! I may look young (see the "About" page), but I played in my first Fantasy Football league way back in 1995. I started playing in mid/high stakes FF leagues five years ago and even won one (2014 FFWC #8). I also won the 2016 KFFSC. In 2018, I was Top 5 in the SBFFC. This blog will document my thoughts, experiences, and exploits in the realm of Fantasy Football. I've also been starting to do sports betting more in 2019. Any picks I post are for entertainment purposes only. Thanks for reading!
