A tiered ranking spreadsheet by position...I cross off someone who has been picked. I circle my picks.

So I guess I would also need a pen/pencil...

Tiered rankings to go off of is a must. On my spreadsheet I keep relatively recent MDP data on each player, so I have a decent idea who's being taken where. I've found draft tracker software to be helpful as well, especially one that projects team stats.

Usually I can keep track of where I am as opposed to other teams, but it's a quick way to check if I'm say projected to be last in steals on the year.

0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

In my draft I know that certain players base their picks off of Yahoo and some base their picks off of ESPN. I bring their listings, and ADP list (which I use as my pseudo official list where I keep track of who's gone and who's available) and a keep a tiered ranking (from the gentlemen who supplied it here in the forum). And of course a pen.

And of course, Beer & Grilled Wings.

A healthy understanding of leaguemates' preferences, faults, proclivities, and favorite players. Its great for forcing up bids on players I don't want but I know that someone else does.
