Help with Strategy for live draft......

Postby killahurtz » Sat Mar 20, 2004 2:43 pm

20 team H2H. How would you draft in first five rounds? Should I go for pitchers early..maybe one outfielder and 4 pitchers/closers to start it off. I never been in a draft with this many teams.

It's no different from a normal draft just a little longer and deeper. Best available works best in large drafts.

A lot depends upon league setup but especially in larger drafts I try to avoid pitching early unless something falls into my lap. Then I fill out my staff with value picks in the middle rounds.

In smaller leagues, I will take a few more risk....but in a large league I always use the Best Available method.... :-)
