I am actually doing that this year (for the 1st time - I just bought the FantasyPros Draft Tool). So I will have a better idea of how I am doing in categories and I will have access to some projections as well. My question really is how to track the categories and projections?
It should be fairly easy to find the best guy If you only track 1 category at a time. If the tracker says you need AVG you find the best AVG guy at the position you need. But, in the mock drafts I am doing I find I frequently want to improve more than 1 category. What if the tracker says I need AVG and HRs? Or Runs, SBs and AVG? That a lot to try and figure out in real-time. To make this easier i am thinking about grouping power stats (HRs & RBIs) vs speed stats (SBs & Runs). That way when I need power I dont accidentally get a guy like Josh Reddick (who hits plenty of HRs but somehow doesn't get nearly as many RBIs as other power guys). That doesn't handle all situations but it brings it down to the 3 most likely (power, speed, or AVG).
Does that make sense or is that overkill? Is it better to only worry about 1 stat at a time - figuring that grabbing HRs generally also gets you RBIs, and grabbing SBs generally also gets you Runs?
