Scout Fantasy Sports’ BestBall World Championship is a free-to-play contest in which players can prepare for their real draft while participating in a mock draft that could net them some sweet prizes, including the Grand Prize: $2,500 or the ultimate Fantasy Football experience – a trip to Vegas to participate in the Main Event! Brian Nutt, who has been participating in contests with us for years, submitted an entry into the BestBall World Championship that nobody else could top!
BestBall World Championship Summary
Practice for draft day with our mock draft tool, and ENTER the drafted team into the contest to win cash and prizes.
- Use our mock draft tool which has been preset for our scoring and lineup rules, to create a team of 16 players.
- Each mock draft will have a total of 12 teams; one team is drafted by you; all the other teams are drafted by the simulator. Only teams drafted and submitted by human participants are entered into the contest. No robots allowed!
- No need to enter a lineup each week. The system will pick your “best possible” lineup on Tuesday morning, following each week’s games.
- Weekly 10-man Starting Lineup: 1 QB, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 DEF & 1 flex player (RB,WR or TE).
- The leaderboard’s overall standings are based on total starting lineup points scored during the entire 2018 NFL regular season, week 1 through week 17. Any official stat changes will be applied on Thursdays following each week’s NFL games.
- Draft until you’re happy!
Scout Fantasy Sports decided to ask Brian a little bit about how he was able to separate himself from the rest of the pack in a contest that had thousands of unique entries.
Scout Fantasy Sports: What was your strategy in the 2018 BestBall World Championships?
Brian Nutt: I really went for running backs that were the Triple Threats–the ability to run, catch passes, and score touchdowns.
Scout Fantasy Sports: Any players you were avoiding? Busts?
Brian Nutt: I wanted to take my quarterbacks late and figured I could get quality in the later rounds, while adding another quality RB, WR or TE earlier in the draft. That worked to my favor, as I was able to snag Jared Goff, one of the top quarterbacks in Fantasy this season at an extremely discounted price.
Scout Fantasy Sports: Were there any guys you considered must-haves?
Brian Nutt: Todd Gurley and Christian McCaffery were my must-have running backs, while George Kittle–figured he was a steal–was the guy I felt I needed at the tight end position. He ended up sealing the deal for me in the last week.
Scout Fantasy Sports: Best pick? Worst pick?
Brian Nutt: It’s tough to say who my best pick was. It was either Christian McCaffrey or George Kittle, both of which were PPR monsters this past season. My worst pick had to be Duke Johnson. He didn’t do much all season, with Nick Chubb leading the way in Cleveland. I needed Duke the last week of the season with McCaffrey and Gurley both sitting out. Fortunately, it all worked out in the end.
Scout Fantasy Sports: If you could do it over again, would you go 2 QB, 6 RB, 5 WR, 2 TE, 1 PK, 1 DEF? Why or why not?
Brian Nutt: Yes, I like having the options, the only thing I might change would be if there was still a quality third TE, I might go with one less WR. Tight ends are so hit or miss and it’s good to have options for those up and down weeks.
Brian Nutt will be back in 2019 to defend his BestBall World Champion title. Keep your eyes glued to Scout Fantasy Sports because the next Mock Draft World Championship is just around the corner!
