Hey Grey and Friends: What're some tips for drafting last?

Postby Bluebomb » Fri Jan 04, 2013 10:13 pm

16-team ESPN H2H Each Category, Standard 5x5 w/ OBP instead of AVG
Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF (x3), UTIL (x2), SP (x2), RP (x2), P (x4), BN (x5), DL (x2) (23 total)
Snake draft

So I draft 16th then 1st. For my first two picks I took CarGo and Kershaw. I toyed around with Tulo but decided I didn't want to wait to get a pitcher (all of the top-tier pitchers are gone now, so that was a good call I think).

So first off, what're some general tips for drafting at the end of the round like this?

Second, who ought I take for my next two picks? In the OF, there's A-Gon, Jones, Ellsbury, Pence, and Bourn. At 2B, there's Kipnis, Hill and Phillips. SS has got Castro and Andrus. 3B, I could reach for someone like Zimmerman or Headley. Which two should I grab?

Greinke, Weaver Halladay, and MadBum are also available but I don't think I need another pitcher.

I wouldn't draft a pitcher... Especially not Kershaw...

Second, who ought I take for my next two picks? In the OF, there's A-Gon, Jones, Ellsbury, Pence, and Bourn. At 2B, there's Kipnis, Hill and Phillips. SS has got Castro and Andrus. 3B, I could reach for someone like Zimmerman or Headley. Which two should I grab?

Zimmerman, A-Gon, but for 1st base not OF...

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.
