What was your draft strategy?

What was your strategy (if you had one) you used in your league? How big is your league? How did you do?

8 man .5ppr (drafted 4th)
This one I got my RBs early in the first two rounds (Kamara and JT) and then filled WRs and QB out before drafting another RB late. I lost in the semis with a lower game from JT and a sub par game from Kamara.

12 man 1PPR keeper (drafted 9th)
Kept Calvin Ridley in the 4th.l so I again went RB early (Ekler and CEH). WRs with Brady in the 5th. Chase 7th round keeper for next year. Won this league.

10 man league standard (drafted 1st)
Went RB heave with CMC, Barkley, and Carson in 3/4 first rounds. Finished last in this league.

12 team standard league. I draft WRs high and worry about RBs in the middle rounds and go hard on the waiver wire. Finished 2nd last year and 1st this year.

12 team .5 PPR in 2 leagues

Team 1
Prioritized RB. 1st WR I took was like round 6 or 7 with Jamaar Chase. Got Brandin Cooks right after that and then Jaylen Waddle late. Ended up 1st place

Team 2
Tried a more balanced approach. Drafted AK 1st and then Calvin Ridley. Had to make a bunch of trades to salvage my team but ended up in 3rd place

Next year I will prioritize RB and TE. WRs pop up all the time but its so hard to find those 2 positions.

10 team standard. Had the 1 seed going into the playoffs but lost in the first round.
Plan was to spend first 2 picks on RBs (ended up with Barkley and Mixon). If I couldn't get Kelce or Waller then I wasn't taking a TE until the very end, maybe targeting Higbee late (got Waller in the 4th).
I really believed in the Rams offense and wanted a lot of their shares. Plan was to not go QB until Stafford late. If that failed I was going to take a chance on Lance or Fields. (ended up with Stafford, Woods, and Rams K)
Mike Williams, Darnell Mooney, and Javonte Williams were 3 guys I circled that I was willing to draft earlier than their ADP (got Mike Williams and Javonte William). Mike ended up being a curse because I was already high on him so after his first month of the season it took several weeks before I learned to bench him

10 team PPR where I drafted 3rd. I won both leagues I was in this year. I typically always have the strategy of best player available at any given slot. Took Kamara at 3 and got Najee coming back in the 2nd. I kept Jefferson as a 6th rounder and drafted Kupp in the 4th.

When Ingram came back to the Saints and the game script dictated that he was going to be splitting time from there on out, I traded him for Davante Adams while he still had the perceived 1st round value. My starting lineup in the finals was…
