Draft Advice

Postby pgolds » Wed Feb 25, 2004 4:05 pm


I'm new to Fantasy Baseball and I'm looking for some opinions on drafting. I'm in a private Yahoo H2H league and they are going to have an autopick draft. As you can imagine, I'm reluctant to use the Yahoo Rankings, so I'd like to pre-rank the players myself.

I know in Fantasy Hockey, goalies are, by far, the most important player. What I'm wondering is, how important are pitchers? If I rank my top <insert number> players, should I weight pitchers higher or other players higher? Should I try to get a pitcher in the first few rounds, or go for sluggers?

The scoring categories are: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP

Thanks in advance.

Depends on what your pick number is. If you're pick is 1-6, I'd grab a bat. If it's 7+ you might want to grab a stud pitcher first.

There are plenty of good pitchers out there for you to get, so you might want to get 3-4 good bats first and then go for some arms. Check out the mock drafts here, you'll get a good idea of where do draft whom.

Best of Luck! ;-D

this topic has come up a few times...I'd try running a search in this forum for "autodraft strategies" or "autodraft advice" or some such thing...
