This is one of the most anticipated times of the year for a lot of football fans. They get to draft their favorite players from their favorite team and watch them rack up points for their fantasy football squad.

The thing people sometimes forget to look at, however, is who comes with a lot of risks? A lot of fantasy owners that possess a bias towards a team can sometimes overlook major flaws and concerns from one of their favorite players. This can cause big issues with their fantasy team.

If you’re not willing to overlook your fandom and focus on the risks players carry with them, your fantasy football season could turn out to be a very long and painful year.

What are some things that can cause you to be concerned about a player? Well, one major thing you need to look for is if that player is considered injury-prone. Has he missed multiple games during several different seasons?

If the answer is yes, you need to weigh the pros and cons of selecting a player at a certain point in your draft. Is this guy worth drafting at this position even if he carries a certain risk?

These are all things you need to think about when going into your draft. Put your fandom bias aside and go into your fantasy football draft with an open mind. This is one bit of advice you could use when beginning your draft.
