My top score is 4312. Other guys drafting for the Jets have scores ranging from 5125 (#1) to 4800 (#20).
I don't see how they are achieving these scores? I've drafted around 50 times, trying various methods.... trading up for Watkins, trading down to garner multiple picks, getting A's on all my picks, filling all the needs the game suggests and I still fall below my high score.
Has anyone mastered this hypothetical draft? I'd be curious to hear your suggestions and experiences.
also, there are a few tricks I have learned to get higher scores(you probably already know them, but ill say it anyways)
#1 don't pick the guy who you think is better, pick the guy who the simulator thinks is better. gotta have a good memory
#2 use a standard starting lineup as your grid. pick 2 wr's not 3. pick 2 og's instead of 2 centers even tho you think the value is greater
#3 always take the trade back as long as you are only moving back 5 spots or less and getting an extra pick immediately following your trade pick. for instance no 1st and 3rd trades for your 1st even if only moving back 1 spot .only 1st and 2nd picks for your first
#4 don't always take the greater value for your trade. move back as least as you can. for instance, there might be 2 trades on the table for your #18. a 21st in the 1st and a 21st in the 2nd. and the other trade is a 23rd in the 1st, a 23rd in the 2nd, a 23rd in the 3rd, and a 23rd in the 4th. take the 21st 1st and 2nd.
#5 try as hard as you can to fill a complete 22 man roster. you have to add a punter,kicker, and fullback. one of each starting position
#6 don't pick a rb till the 5th or 6th round
#7 qb garopalo & ss jimie ward are always there in the 4th for an "A" grade
