Default Yahoo 12 Team Snake Draft Results

Postby Chicago RedSox » Wed Mar 04, 2009 6:40 pm

This is how a 12 team Yahoo Auto Draft will turn out based on the default rankings.
I've asked before if people have preferences for draft position....if they'd rather have the 1/24 pick or the 12/13 pick. Most people say the higher the pick the better, and I agree. But I am anxious for the season to begin and have been playing around with my rankings and decided to see how the teams would turn out. I only did the first 14 rounds though...

It's an interesting idea, but slightly flawed in that there are two teams that have drafted two 2B in the first four rounds. In reality, teams would adapt - for example, Team 11 would surely take Aramis Ramirez in the 4th round over Roberts, and Team 1 should go with Carlos Lee instead of Phillips. And there's no way Team 7 would take all those OF early!

But it could be useful in getting an idea as to when players might go, so you know when you need to reach a little if you want them.

Good exercise, though you are going into this assuming that every owner does not edit their pre-rankings, which is probably not going to happen. It does help you to get an idea how you should edit your rankings prior to an Auto-Draft.
This is why, though, that I haven't done one in several years.
Where's the fun? Unless you like to take trainwrecks, and fix em, I guess.

If you want to see how players are going in drafts, I'd recommend trying a few of their mock drafts. They're quite good, actually. You can only sign up for them 1/2 hour in advance, so you don't have many deadbeat managers.

I know it's flawed and unrealistic. I didn't intend for it to be a valuable exercise, just something to do until draft day comes. I guess best case scenario it helps illustrate the value of pre-ranking if you do auto draft.
My league has done auto for the past 3 years, but I've finally managed to talk them into going live this year.

Not sure what this really proves.
