Ah, the smell of the EEFL draft is in the air. It is so close, I can almost taste it. With everyone’s draft plan pretty much set, it’s time to delve into the strategical aspects of the league.
What strategical aspects, you might say? And why do you keep saying strategical?
First, I would like to discuss most of the approaches that each team may walk upto the counter with in the inaugural season of the EEFL. Secondly, I try to use semi-large words that might make me appear to be smart. I know the likelihood of that succeeding is very low, but I still like to give it a durable effort.
Anyways, I’ve spent enough time trying to impress you with words that my 10 year old brother just taught me, so I’ll get to the point.
I’ve spent many hours juggling between which way I would want to go in the draft. Would I want to go with height, speed, hands or smarts?
I know many of you have done the same. You’ve thought, “Hmm… would player A and player B mesh better with me, or player A and player C?”
The answer is, it’s hard to be wrong. The thing is, the only two games that you need your formula to work is in the final two games. There’s no reason to say that your team couldn’t pull it together in the playoffs.
Now, you could also say the emotional toll on your team could be too much, but in your first game in the playoffs, no matter the seed, except #1, you will be playing the team that finished next to you in the standings, providing a spark for you to ride throughout the end.
I don’t know about you guys, but I’m super excited about this season, and you should be too. This is going to be one heck of a time.
Make sure to tune in a 6 o’clock on Sunday night to watch as we waffle back and forth a couple last times before making our fateful picks.
So what I’m asking you guys, captains and players, what is the strategy or mindset you would approach the draft with, and what do you think is going to be the most critical for success?
