I suggest highly you guys get acquainted with ESPN's drafting boards and do some mocks over there, as well.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Great advice. I'm off to see what new bells and whistles ESPN has installed on their draft software.

Ya just did a mock there and there rankings are terrible screwed me up a lil bit. I also find it hard to navigate but that might just be because I am used to yahoo.

Looks like they only have 10-team drafts over there.

Or am I missing something?

Uh - I don't think there are any Razzballers drafting over there right now. I just switched to autopick and left one 10-team draft after getting:

9. (9) Team Lyon Grady Sizemore (Cle) CF
2. (12) Team Lyon Ryan Howard (Phi) 1B
9. (29) Team Lyon Nick Markakis (Bal) RF
2. (32) Team Lyon Matt Kemp (LAD) CF
9. (49) Team Lyon Aramis Ramirez (ChC) 3B
2. (52) Team Lyon Shane Victorino (Phi) CF

In the first 6 rounds.

Then I thought I'd give it another try and in another 10-team draft got Reyes with the 8th pick.

At least two of the guys in the draft passed on him cos he played for the Mets.

Pointless.

At least become familiar with the eligibility of players. I believe they use 20 games, so you lose certain players.

Quite. A bit churlish (Word of the Day?) of me to act on your advice and then start complaining as soon as I got there!

As Hippo & Freak pointed out here, Sandoval has no catcher eligibility. I couldn't find Maybin in the player list, either.

So it IS definitely worth doing.

You will be drafting with some blockheads at times, though. I stand by that ;)
