Now see, that's
the kind of fantasy advice that keeps me coming back to the Cafe.
Not only will you have fewer bathroom breaks, but if you push a lager or pale ale on the rest of your league they'll drink more and make their last few picks buzzed.
We've gone to a slow online draft because we are spread over the entire country, but I'll chime in anyways.
I commish, so I tend to have a spreadsheet where I can enter every team's roster. I also like to print out the Yahoo pre-draft rankings position by position so I have a sense of who other teams are likely to draft. Like AT, I also mark it up with players I think are likely to go too early or too late.
I also like to have a copy of Baseball Prospectus handy, along with a fantasy mag (I like Fantasy Baseball Index, because they include the stats I like.)
And beer. And pizza. When you do a slow online draft that takes several weeks that turns out to be a lot of beer and pizza. But I am tough.
