Now if Aramis Ramirez falls to the end of round 4 I may pass but of he's there in round 5 I may make him my 2nd DH. I did this successfully last year in my main league, taking Longoria, Aram and Sandoval. When Longo went down I had a super backup option and filled my UT spot with SB needs.
Ender wrote:I always draft the best available. Keep in mind the best available is a very wide range though so it is usually a choice between 10 to 30 players and not just 1 or 2. But if I have a clear need and someone has fallen way farther than I think they should have I will skip the need and take the value every time. I'm more of a tier based drafter though since this concept of player value is a sham in the first place. Your dollar values should be +/- $5 at the very least so someone has to fall multiple rounds to really be a good value. If you are at say pick 120 of the draft the next 30 players in your queue probably have the same value realistically.
