hmmm... that may be distracting and may also piss off your significant other (assuming she's not already pissed off at you for closeting yourself in a musky room for 3 hours in order to stare at a computer screen and create your "fantasy team consistingof other men")

that being said, the valuable tools for the online draft are:
1. a lspreadsheet of all participating teams and who've they've drafted by position (helps to guage when given managers might make a certain pick)

2. an unsorted overall list of the top 100 or so players overall, including all hitters and pitchers, WITH STATS. (use for the first 6 rounds or so when the best players are taken)

3. lists of the top players sorted by position, WITH STATS. (use later in the draft when filling out your roster is important)

4. a list of closers (you can copy an updated one from the "closer watch" thread under this topic

5. a list of "sleeper's" or players that you think will be undervalued and are thus targeting for the later rounds.

6. your "last will and testament" to be found near your rotting carcass after you realize your team sucks and that you've wasted the last three weeks of your life, and thus decide to end it all. :-D
you can't live the dream, if you don't play the game

Do you bring significant other to the draft?

The only way she would find out is if she was actually the stripper right?

I think that if we were having a 2 team league on a desert island MrsAcidRock would just punt every cat before she'd sit through a draft...

2 Highlighters (one color for your picks, one for the others)

A rankings sheet for each position (with tiers).

I never put anything like stars by my targeted guys. I usually whip through the list and use a code, like even numbers for my guys and odd numbers for the guys I don't want. I usually do this while watching college hoops and drinking beers and will also sometimes put stars by guys I don't want, just in case anyone is peeking...hee hee...

I guess if anyone is peeking I'm in big trouble since I do online drafts. :-b
