I may not be able to attend my live draft (12 team 5x5 mixed roto league - snake draft) so I have been trying to tweak the rankings (using Grey's spreadsheet) in my favor. The problem has always been that I end up with strong hitting but weak pitching.

I have the #6 pick in the draft.

To fix this, I put Verlander at pick #3 in my draft. (I had been getting Andrew McCutchen with that pick, but I have now swapped him for Verlander).

How does this look? I would like to get at least three closers, but the stats in our league are SP, SP, P, P, P, RP, RP, so yahoo will only draft two closers for my unless I put the closers too high in the rankings, which can cause me to pick them too early.

Thoughts?

Mock #1:

C: Salvador Perez
1B: Paul Goldschmidt

I like your mock 2 better. Your sp in the first one doesn't seem strong enough behind Verlander.

The problem is that my rankings aren't any different from #1 and #2. I did both via autodraft to simulate it. The only thing I can think of is to move my SP higher in the rankings.

Any other suggestions?

FWIW, this is how using the default Yahoo rankings would have looked (via another mock draft).
So, the question becomes if I am using auto-draft, should I use a modified version of Grey's rankings or just use Yahoo's default (with a few players omittied, i.e. Chase Headley, Hanley, etc.).

Mock Draft using YAHOO DEFAULT RANKINGS:
C: Brian McCann
1B: Eric Hosmer
2B: Rickie Weeks
SS: Asdrubal Cabrera
3B: Pablo Sandoval
OF: Matt Kemp
OF: Norichika Aoki
OF: Dexter Fowler
UT: Todd Frazier (1B,3B,OF)
UT: Allen Craig
BENCH: Hanley Ramirez (3B,SS)
BENCH: Dustin Ackley
BENCH: Cameron Maybin
BENCH: Howie Kendrick

Starters: Stephen Strasburg, Cliff Lee, Chris Sale , Anibal Sanchez, Matt Garza, Trevor Cahill, Clay Buchholz
Closers: Jason Motte, Brandon League
