I have never been in a 16 team league before and wanted to get some input before my draft.
I plan on taking Ryan Braun with my first pick. Normally I would take an infielder, but since my next player won't be for 27 picks, I am looking for Braun to put up big numbers across the board and get my offense off to a good start.
My next two picks will be #30 and #35. I was thinking of targeting Jimmy Rollins and Victor Martinez (or Brian McCann if V-mart gone), figuring those are the two weakest positions this year with the steepest dropoff. Or would I be better off targeting a 2b (Phillips or Cano) and 3b (Zimmerman or Sandoval)? Do either of these make sense, or any other suggestions?
My next two picks are #62 and #67. Here I was going to grab a 1b (Berkman, Lee, Butler) and a SP (hopefully someone like Lester or Kershaw). Thoughts here?
My next pick won't be until #94, so there is no margin for error and I have to make the first five rounds count. Any comments, suggestions, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
