The Fantasy Football Counselor shares some practical Auction Draft tips and tricks to help you with your drafts. Here are the Tips:

- Know the sleepers and the values
- Don’t overpay for anyone
Using these along with the 16 Rounds Draft solution will put you light years ahead of the competition.

So implement the tips and tricks offered in this video along with my 16 Rounds Draft solution and you will be for any fantasy football 2021 draft you do!
