Drafting Tips

Postby evilempire2 » Sat Feb 14, 2009 11:43 pm

This is my second year in fantasy baseball. Last season I did not go into the draft with a strategy. After researching and using the fantasy cafe for fantasy basketball i am dominating my league. I hope to get the same results for baseball. Any experienced players out there have any possible ideas for CATS I should look to dominate going into the draft? (example: for basketball, going in i looked to dominate FG%, REBS, BLKS) IDK, just advice at all would be great. Here are the CATS:

R, H, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, TB, AVG, OBP, SLG, OPS, NSB, SB% (Hitting)

IP, W, L, CG, SHO, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, NH, BSV (Pitching)

Positions:

C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util

SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P

8 Bench Players

Pitching has more value in your league due to having 14 cats.

I would actually look at pitchers more than hitters, especially since IP is on there.
Someone like CC in the 2nd would be great value for you.

This is without using any numbers to analyze your cats...

Power hitters would seem to have a ton of value in this league, and devalues SBs pretty significantly. With so many hitting categories, SBs go down in value and do less for you overall. As for sluggers, the league is counting OBP, OPS, SLG, TB, HR, and RBIs. I'd ignore the well rounded hitters, and bump the power hitters up in value.

Is there a max inning limit for this league? Is it H2H, roto? I'd want to know that before recommending on pitchers.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
