Best Draft Kit out there?

Postby Slow Pitch » Sun Feb 17, 2008 12:11 pm

I am looking for a solid draft kit to use during my draft....in one neat organzied spot that I can print & take with me.

I dont want to bring my laptop. I will have the cafe rankings printed as well, but I need something additional to supplement the cafe rankings.

Ones that have decent rankings too, sleepers, bust, prospects a wealth of info & not some BS ones like Fox or CBS have...

Maybe RotoWorld or Rototimes? Any others. I dont mind spending $15-$20 bucks for it.....

Please suggest...

Thanks!

Best thing to do is to just make your own... Might take a couple hours but who cares, you'll learn more about the players that way...

Find a generic one, copy and paste it into Word or Excel and cut and paste the guys into the slots you think they belong in.

Slow Pitch,
I don't really have a favorite but gleen something from all the free ones out there. I just refuse to pay for any site...though I have been giving serious consideration to paying for a Baseball HQ subscription. Anyway, here our some sites I like with their rankings:

http://games.espn.go.com/frontpage/flbdraftkit Their draft kit was posted this weekend

http://www.rotoauthority.com/2008/02/free-2008-fanta.html Tim Dierkes has offered his spreadsheet for free with rankings, $ values, and projections ...really good stuff here

http://www.fantasygameday.net/ Kelly is the author of this site and while he does not have a nicely packaged draft kit, you can find his rankings throughout the site

http://mvn.com/mlb-fantasy/ Thes guys run a great and informative site. They do not mindlessly follow lock step with the other experts. They actually provide some good analysis as well. Their draft kit is not ready yet, but they have begun to release it piecemeal.

http://www.melnickandgrecofantasysports.com/ This Lenny Melnick's new site with Paul Greco. There is a draft kit on the site, but I believe it is all Paul Greco's work. Lenny has rankings and such, but it is all through his podcasts...not written. Not a big fan of Paul's work, but I admit I have not looked at it yet this year, so it may be improved from last year.

And of course you can go to CBS to see their rankings, but if they are anything like last year, their rankings stink.

Hope that helps!

Check out http://www.fantasybaseballexpress.com. In addition to the draft kit, which contains a lot of info, the site also offers frequent podcasts.
