Seeing as many yahoo leagues are going to be drafting soon I'd say there nothing wrong. I perfer very early March so I have about a month to do anything I want to my team.

I have a draft on the 27th and then on March 2nd. A little too early for me especially for the 16 team league but hopefully everything works out :-o

I don't like drafting early because I don't think predicting if player x or y is going to fluke injure himself in preseason is a skill.

I also prefer to wait, so spring training injuries are accounted for. I guess there wouldn't be anything wrong with drafting now though.

Well, slow drafts should be starting about now so they have enough time to finish before the end of the season. But there is no reason to be doing live drafts this early.

If you're eager to draft...get in a mock draft. They're all over the place. Most die out after 10-23 rounds, but they take the edge off of drafting too early just to do something.

I have 30 yahoo e-mail accounts, and use free Yahoo public leagues as mock drafts, and I might even play one team I like, just for fun.
