Hey who are the top tier guys for OBP? the cats are R HR RBI SB OBP. So who would be good for those categories? Maybe barry bonds?

Bonds should be the #1 overall pick in an OBP league.

Abreu and Helton are two others that get a value boost.

Tejada and Ichiro may drop out of the first round as they rarely walk. Soriano is also one to avoid.

Remember its really not that different than a standard 5x5 league, so just bump guys who walk a lot up a little bit and those who don't walk so much down a few notches. No one besides Bonds really makes that drastic of a move.

Yeah, maybe Barry. ;-)

Dunn, Helton, Abreu, Wilkerson, Berkman, Posada, Chavez all gain value when its OBP instead of BA. Ichiro acutally loses some value when its OBP instead of BA.
