But I've won this league several years in a row, and I'm starting to get off now on the challenge a little bit. Of autodrafting while others are not, I mean. My first mock draft using my draft list wasn't a complete disaster. I'll tweak it and try again...
It's possible to do well with an auto draft. No reason to give up or to not look at it as a challenge.
Put a few rounds worth of players in the sequence you want them, then start adding small tiers of players by position. Order those tiers by how you'd want them drafted.
Remember to put all you marginal players at the bottom of your ranks! By that I mean ALL 2B after Cano AND ALL C after VMart
, or wherever you separate your lower tiers. You'll still get the top one available from your list, so there is no reason at all to place them any higher where you could inadvertently get one in your Util or a bench slot. Put your sleepers, and anyone you'd like on your bench above these guys.
