Fantasy Baseball Draft "Just do your homework."

3 or 4 years ago I was in a league where I didn't pay attention to my rankings list before I drafted.  Not only that, I did not prepare each pick during the draft by putting them in queue incase something happened.  Well come my second pick, I lost my internet connection and Craig Wilson was selected off my rankings list.  Previously I was messing around putting players I was targeting to be breakouts at the top of my list.  However I never finished it.  Wow did I take a ribbing from the rest of the league when I got back online for my third pick.  They were relentless, but I did not beat myself up over it.  I just kept drafting and ended up with a pretty good team.  That is... good enough to win the league...AND YOU KNOW...I had to get me some payback.  So I posted a nice picture of Craig Wilson holding a trophy since he was instrumental in helping my team win.  Of course that was his only good year, but I had him when it counted.  Now the whole point of my story can take a risk with one of your first 3 picks as long as your other two are solid.  So never feel you have to follow conventional wisdom when drafting your first pick, second pick, or 3rd pick.  Just do your homework to make sure you have solid picks when taking that unconventional risk.  Also, for the love of god, don't forget to prerank your players and queue up during the draft.

Fantasy Baseball Draft "Just do your homework."

O, I guess the boy scouts had it right, "be prepared." Does this mean that you are targeting Ryan Doumit this year?

Fantasy Baseball Draft "Just do your homework."

Hey Onion, just swingin by. Is fantasy baseball anything like football?  I have never been on a Fantasy baseball team, and was wondering if they were about the same.
