Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Middle-Round Strategy & Picks (2024)

Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Middle-Round Strategy & Picks (2024)

If you’re anything like me, the FantasyPros Draft Wizard has been your best friend as of late. I participated in my first EARTH league draft with some friends from the industry, and I’d be lying if I said I did any less than seven mock drafts leading up to the start of the draft.

At the end of the day, It’s always best to be prepared. Going into these drafts, you want to have tried out every draft strategy you can think of. Whether it’s ones you’ve never tried and are curious about the end result or you’re looking to see how long you can wait on certain positions, it’s always a good idea. It can also be pretty fun, too.

This draft season, FantasyPros is providing fantasy baseball mock drafts from a few of us to give you guys an idea of what you can expect from a draft. It can help you peak inside our minds to see who we target in certain scenarios. For this 10-team mock draft, I decided to start myself out with the sixth pick. Here is some advice specific to the XXX rounds of the draft. You can find the full mock draft here.

The Middle Of The Draft

The next few rounds were about two things. The first was getting another top-tier SP to compliment the Strider pick. The second was about locking in saves. If you’re in a categories league and want to lock up saves, focus on getting two of the elite options. Only if you’ve given yourself a solid base of early hitting and a good enough SP1 to use those earlier rounds on closers. The only guys I’m considering here are Josh Hader, Emmanuel Clase, Devin Williams and Jhoan Duran.

Following that, it becomes about drafting a mix of guys with a high floor and guys with top-of-the-position upside. For me, guys like Lane Thomas, Josh Naylor, and Ian Happ are all guys who are pretty “boring” but amazing fantasy options. They’re going to come out and give you the same stat line year after year, and their floor is high enough to still give high-end fantasy value. These are the guys you want to make sure you lock up. Don’t be the guy trying to hit a home run with every pick (pun fully intended).
