Yeah, thats basically how all fantasy sports go.
The draft is simple. We'll order the teams in the league 1-12 (or however many teams there will be), and when a team's turn comes up, they will pick
a player from the entire NFL player list. Typically you want to go with the best available at the positions you need, which is every position at the
start of the draft.
We'll keep doing that until all of the positions on every team is filled.
You'll have player rankings available to you, so no worries about not knowing many players.
The thing about fantasy sports is you don't really have to know the players or the sport that well to participate. With stat projections and player
rankings, it makes it easy.
There are some things that give someone who knows, for example, the NFL and its players an advantage over someone not familiar with the NFL, such as
maybe if Team A is playing Team B, and although Team A has a better record and better team, they can't seem to always beat Team B. So of course
someone following the NFL more closely would know that and would avoid starting players from Team A given the chance they might not have a great game.
And there's other variables like weather, maybe a certain player does or does not play well in a certain kind of weather that they will be playing in
that week. Obviously knowing the players and the NFL would help with that.
Other than that, its a pretty level playing field.
