The National Fantasy Baseball Championships drafts are arguably the most competitive high stakes season long drafts out there. With top prizes over $125,000, most people playing in these leagues are seasoned and very much know what they are doing. To get more information on what the NFBC is all about, you can go here for a full overview.
Some details about this specific NFBC league: It is the Rotowire Online Championship 12 team mixed roto. It is a snake draft and there are 30 roster spots per team.
When the league filled and the draft spots were allocated, I was very excited to see that I had the #1 overall pick. I was hoping to pick close to either end of the draft, and really like getting back to back picks. In that spot, I feel you have the ability to set the tone in different rounds and if you're fortunate, even kick off some runs without being stuck in the middle of them. But enough about strategy, onto the picks:
All things considered, I really liked the draft. I have a great chance to dominate Runs, Average, Saves, WHIP, and ERA. I have room to improve with K's, HR's and SB's but I don't think I'm terrible in those categories by any stretch.
Going by my auction values, I drafted $328 in value for my 23 starters. If an average team would theoretically be 260, this basically means I killed it! I have another NFBC draft on 3/31 and am already looking forward to it.
Special thanks to Bob Burlone who drafted this team with me and is also looking forward to our $125,000 prize :)
