2023 Fantasy Baseball Strategy & Advice
How to Approach Early, Middle & Late Rounds
The first rule of fantasy baseball drafts is to acknowledge (and accept) that someone in your league will absolutely, without fail, draft a player you were planning to roster this season. Every cheat sheet you make and every plan you create can go out the window as early as Round 1.
Rather than a specific plan for your draft, you need to establish an approach as to how you want to fill your roster, where the hidden gems are by ADP, and when it’s okay to reach. In a regular snake draft, you cannot irrationally outbid anyone to get your guy. (Ah, the benefits of salary cap leagues.) You need a general understanding of which players you’re drawn to and where to get them.
How you approach the start, middle, and end of your draft is up to you. We will look at them as three separate drafts and offer tips on how to approach each one.
