yeah I expect some changes before the drafting gets started. I think Beltran and Bonds will both be moved up to at least the top 30. Btw, the top 50 is exactly the same as Funstons Big Board.

They changed their rankings last year about a week after opening. I would expect them to boost the closers rankings a fair bit before the season opens since Yahoo did that last year.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

The rankings have improved each year.

I remember the rankings of 2000...distrubing.

They also opened about a month later because of the whole linsensing issues, so they may have rushed to get FBB to the consumer before fully fixing thier rankings...Or maybe not.

They are still putting way too much stock into 2005 numbers.

I am truly amazed at how much better they are than last year.

Maybe now public leagues will be competitive :-)

True maybe if drafting was that important. It isn't, so sad to say the leagues will be no more competitive than they've ever been.

Although the rankings are a huge improvement on previous years they are still not very good.


There is a guy that could well be Top 10 in his position ranked below 500 :-?

There's also maybe as many as 10 SP's ranked 250 or below that should definitely be drafted in 12 team leagues, some even in 10 team leagues and there's also some other great value positional players ranked below 250 as well.
