I always find the O rank extremely helpful in drafts. most people only have the first 5 rounds pegged, then just sorta browse the list of people for adds, if the O rank has someone unjustly high you can usually snag him a little later in the draft then where you have him marked.
Research always pays off.
If your new to FB, just post your considerations here... its seems most of the posters here can give honest evalutations of whether the player is an improvement to your lineup (and not an improvement in your O rank)
As for Boones O rank, yes its high...... yes he is not that good anymore, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't grab, alot of people have cashed in high picks on him the last two years and got burned. If he's available in your league, you should consider grabbing him if your not strong @ 2b
If you found my advice helpful, please help me
