Fantasy Baseball Newby Needs Help

Postby recmccl » Wed Mar 10, 2004 10:22 pm

This is my first year trying Fantasy Baseball. I'm playing in a Standard, Routisery, Yahoo league. What is a good draft strategy?

Thanks

Best player available. Do that for the first 5 rounds, and then work on rounding out your infield. Grab a 2B, SS, and C before the talent drops off around the 10th round.

listen to the man above. good advice. i would only add my tid bit though to make sure you look at pitchers in the best player idea not just hitters.

I think swarmee is the Steven Hawking of Fantasy Baseball. I waited aimlessly for his draft sheet to come out, and i was so pleased. i have spent all this time trying to get into swarmee's head, that i am glad he finally let me in. he has corrected my grammar, graced me with his list, and overall, just been the guru of the cafe for long enough that i think all of us should listen to him from now on.. So, if you have any advice, listen to swarmee. He's the man........

Hey swarmee, how should i go about living tomorrow?

It's like I'm sitting on a mountain channeling the spirits or something. I just like math and have a good inkling how to use it to my (and the cafe's) advantage.
I don't really know enough about the people on this site to give human interest advice, and neither do I have the training. But I can generally read people well. I don't really have any life advice, but find a sport you enjoy playing and use it to meet women. ;-)
Even Hank Hill would agree with me on that.

I'm unsure if this is good advice, but after about the ninth round, I tend to start rotating between pitchers and hitters. Any thoughts?

Hey Swarmee can you post your cheat sheet or top 100 list? I'd like to see what you think this year.

yea i'd like to see swarmee's list too...

also, try locking up at least 1 pitching stud...if you missed all the top tier studs, look to go back to back potential studs..

Bumped it up to the front page? What does this mean? I'd like to take a look at it, too, if that's OK.
