Looking for a Fantasy Football Draft Guide with the latest fantasy information you can't find on the web? Look no further than the 2016 FFMastermind.com Pre-Season Draft Guide. As we embark on our 21st season, we remind everyone there is NO FILLER in this guide... NO duplicate articles, NO NFL season schedules, NO NFL draft postings, and NO advertisements. All of this information is/will be found at our site for FREE. Why pay for stuff you can view for FREE?

In our guide, you get current up-to-date player analysis and rankings (updated and customizable EVERY WEEK from the release of the fantasy football draft guide in June through the start of the season) along with team notes you can't find ANYWHERE! You'll find Rookie, Sleeper, Deep Sleepers, Creeper and Deep Creeper Previews (categorized) as well as in-depth player ranking analysis broken down by TIERS. We don't give you a one-liner for each player. We give you at least an entire PARAGRAPH of analysis (including any injury concerns and AVERAGE DRAFT POSITION) to back up our ranking as well as a special STAT FACT concerning the performance of that player. Our guide also includes a Free Agent Review where we discuss the "Best" and "Worst" free agent moves of the off-season.

We'll also provide you with critical drafting tips for EVERY POSITION to ensure you get the best value for your picks including the MASTERMIND'S BEST BET.  We'll supply additional tips for those of you in auction and dynasty/keeper leagues. Of course, we will have coverage of DEFENSIVE PLAYERS once again. Along with our individual defensive player cheat sheet, we offer sleeper, creeper, impact rookies, and defensive draft strategy sections. Other services make you pay extra for defensive player information, but not us. This special section is INCLUDED in a Draft Guide Purchase!

You'll also receive comprehensive TIERED cheatsheets from the initial release in June to the start of the regular season. Beginning in early August and lasting all the way to week #1 of the NFL season, FFMastermind.com takes reporting NFL news for fantasy owners one step further. We guarantee DAILY guide supplemental updates and guide subscribers can get their fix with the release of our Premium Pre-Season Quick Bits - News & Views feature! This feature debuted in 2001 and has grown exponentially in recent years with all the key NFL news bits posted along with FANTASY ANALYSIS regarding those bits as a daily supplement to our Pre-Season Draft Guide. It is UPDATED MULTIPLE TIMES EACH DAY and is E-MAILED EXCLUSIVELY TO PREMIUM GUIDE SUBSCRIBERS.

FFMastermind.com is proud to announce The MCP (Mastermind Championship Projections) Board returns once again in 2016! Premium Draft Guide subscribers can get a special look at our initial cut of 2016 fantasy player projection on our customizable MCP Board later this summer! Just log into your account to check it out! Patrons of our site can get a preview for 2016 of this special feature HERE.  The 2016 MCP Board comes at no extra charge with a premium Pre-Season Draft Guide purchase.

So... When your looking for the most comprehensive Fantasy Draft Guide this summer, please consider FFMastermind.com. At more than 500 pages constantly updated until the season begins, it REMAINS the best value on the web!
