Fantasy baseball drafting strategy

17 03 2010

Drafting for your fantasy baseball team shouldn’t be complicated. My general rule-of-thumb is to take the best available player. How does it get any simpler? I’m apt to avoid pitchers until at least Round 6 or 7, but it’s perfectly reasonable when other owners choose a hurler or two in the first five or six rounds.

What I wanted to accomplish with the following amNew York article is to give casual readers a clear understanding of what to expect during the first eight rounds of a 12-team league draft, assuming a standard scoring system (R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP). Although there are too many different draft strategies to list within this space, there is generally a sound way of crafting a team: Make sure you have at least three position players who produce high amounts of home runs and RBIs while doing your best to balance your squad from hitting and pitching perspectives. No kidding, you say? Well, read the story below to find out more specifics about what to expect in each of the first eight rounds.
