From what i understand, he is agreeing with us about the benefit of finding "sleepers" in the yahoo rankings.

I expect the rankings will be updated sooner or later. I believe when they launch every fantasy sport, the rankings are a bit outdated, but get fixed up within a few weeks. No way are they going to leave Hermida, Barmes, etc that low.

Nice lists. Definately a valuable tool if you're in a league with people that don't make up their own rankings and just select from Yahoo's pool. ;-D

I'm salivating at the notion of drafting Todd Helton in the third round.

Yea, who wouldn;t salivate at the prospect of paying 3rd round mixed league prices for 20-25 Hrs out of your 1b?

I'm not in any yahoo leagues this season, but IMHO this is the type of thread that should be kept "highly classified".

It was always like that in the past. I run a league where we offline draft on a Yahoo group. Every year I copy over the Yahoo rankings and we start the draft sometime around Mid-February towards late February. Usually, by late February or early March, they've updated the rankings amking them totally different from the list used in my group. Maybe this year will be different? Check this thread for confirmation that this happened last year:
