Using multiple draft kits or cheat sheets is a great strategy. This allows you to compare player rankings from a variety of sources. It is also good to have a second opinion on who to draft when on draft day.

Other recommended draft kits include Fantasy Football Draft Wizard and the official NFL app.
Footballguys Fantasy Football Draft Dominator 2017
If you're only want to use 1 draft kit then you may want to consider Footballguys. The iOS app provides expert advice from over 60 different sources. It supports rankings for all draft types (i.e. PPR, auctions, serpentine), and it includes mock drafts, the ability to customize settings to match your league rules, watch and avoid lists and other tools to help you draft and maintain your team throughout the 2017 season. You can also utilize the Rate My Team system which will evaluate your roster and help you improve your chances at winning a championship.
You should always keep a search engine handy for those impossible to predict curve balls. Being able to perform a quick internet search on your device will help you avoid drafting hurt or suspended players, and look up other important information on the fly. Being informed can be the difference between drafting a winning team or a bunch of last place losers.
Good luck and have a great season.
