That is something I have put more thought to then in recent years....depth. Not that I never paid attention to it but for example instead of grabbing a defense early bc I believe my team is "strong"....pass on defense one or two rounds later and get another RB/WR for depth especially RB's, it's the position that kills me if I lose. I will point out something, I never well very rarely draft a TE early, I guess I just don't value the position in terms of fantasy or the top tier goes earlier than expected and I wait till later rounds. It's just something I never did.I would agree.
Many fantasy owners buy into the off-season hype. Or they pick familiar names.
Look at Tim Tebow. Never really did much in the NFL. But the name - "TEBOW!"
He gets signed to play TE and he is one of the most "added" players in dynasty leagues.
Doesn't even make it through camp.
On the other side of the coin, I see the perspective.

NFL teams can't wait to show it off, right?
This might be the mentality and it makes sense. It's logical.
But it can be a crapshoot to gauge.
Most rookies don't do squat (unless they're a first-round RB).
Players who change teams don't always make a splash either (in that they fall below expectations).
The one thing I learned is that you need insurance on your bench.
If you fill your bench with sleepers and hyped players, then you have a bench of "potential" only.
Draft only a couple of these guys tops.
As Berry pointed out, you do need guys who may not be flashy, yet can still be consistent fantasy contributors.
Sadly, most fantasy owners swing for the fences.
