Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: 12-Team, Points League (2024)

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: 12-Team, Points League (2024)

Welcome back to another fantasy baseball mock draft. We’re already into February, meaning we’re just a couple of weeks away from pitchers and catchers reporting to Spring Training camps.

It is always important to know your league’s scoring settings before drafting. The last mock article was for a category league, which can be found here.

This mock will be based on points scoring, which tends to be much different in terms of how certain players are valued. In most points leagues, starting pitchers tend to hold more value than they do in category leagues.

In category leagues, building a more balanced roster becomes more important whereas in points leagues, power hitters and high strikeout pitchers tend to hold a bit more value.

Results

Here is a pick-by-pick look at how this fantasy baseball mock draft went. The full results can be viewed here.

Overview

Out of the four mock drafts I have posted on here over the past month, this was by far the best draft grade I was given with an 89 out of 100.

In points leagues, I tend to prioritize starting pitchers early as I did here drafting four starters between rounds 3-7. It is always important to know your leagues settings before drafting to know if your league has any weekly or season-long limits set on starting pitchers.

I tend to punt closers in most cases with it being the most volatile position in fantasy baseball with lots of closers who end up on the waiver wire throughout the season. That is why I waited on Phillips and Finnegan in this mock.

As far as hitters go, points leagues offer more value to power hitters like Soler and Raleigh who I landed in the double-digits rounds here. It is worth noting as of this mock draft that Soler remains a free agent, so he could be drafted earlier by March when we know what team he’ll be playing for this season.

Overall, I am very happy with how this mock went. In short, starters with strikeout upside and power hitters with RBI upside tend to hold more value in points leagues.
