If your league's scoring awards six points for rushing touchdowns, while only four for passing and receiving touchdowns, then you should place more emphasis on drafting running backs instead quarterbacks and receivers. Knowing your league mates will also have a huge impact on your draft strategy. If you know that one of your buddies is a Cincinnati Bengals homer who shows up to the draft wearing his Ocho Cinco jersey, it is obvious who he's going to target in the second round.
