Avoid drafting good players on bad teams

Last updated:

As tempting as it might be to select a talented player from a team like the Cleveland Browns or Jacksonville Jaguars, don’t even think about going down that rabbit hole.

The problem with selecting good players on bad teams is that they’re being held back by their teammates. That limits the player’s ceiling and confines them to a small cardboard box.

You have to use some discretion because a bad team’s No. 1 receiver will outperform an average team’s No. 3 receiver, but if all things are equal, go after players on good teams.
