If there were a fool-proof method for drafting a fantasy team, Priest Holmes would be an annual 2,000-yard back, Daunte Culpepper would never get hurt and we'd set up shop in Vegas.

But there is no such thing as an infallible master plan, nor any single draft design that gives an owner his best chance to come out ahead of the game. It just doesn't work that way. What do you expect from a game based off a league in which two teams can finish a combined 11-21 only a year after facing each other in the championship game? (Take a bow, Bucs and Raiders.)
