no I think that's about right, that's where he's been going in my leagues

I think, barring injury, he's a legit 1st starter on a fantasy team.

Drafting strategies

Postby recmccl » Thu Apr 01, 2004 12:23 pm

Go with the best player strategy.

Some players to avoid. R. Harden, Ensberg, & Mid Relivers (they have no value except for Santana), Jerome Williams, A. Rhodes, J. Weaver. Do your homework.

Check for injured players like T. Nixon, Nomar, Prior, Schmit, Nen, etc. Downgrade appropriately.

A decent place to see player rankings is ESPN:

Good luck

1. I think you posted in the wrong thread because that's not what he was asking about.

2. Santana isn't a mid-reliever this year, he's a starter

3. Mid reliever can definitely help your ratios

Great question -
My experience is that you have to read your competition and the draft. 3rd rd may be a bit early for Os - I would say start looking at him in the 4th. If you want to take a chance and hope he will come back in the 5th or possibly 6th :-o , it is possible.

Ive seen him go as late as the 7th rd in 12 team leagues.

Got him in the 5th round of my 18 team draft :-D

Luckily he's rated pretty low on Yahoo's ratings and I think at least half of the guys in my league used Yahoo as a basis for making their ratings.
