Every year, I try to do at least 1 or 2 Yahoo Pro leagues. They are quite popular and I'm a big fan of their roto standard rules; specifically:
For reference, I had the 12th pick overall. Now, lets take a look at my team starting with the batters:
While I'm admittedly light on power, I should be able to be middle of the pack in HR's and RBI's. I should also be able to be strong from a runs, SB, and AVG perspective. I have a number of players that contribute both in the HR and SB categories and while the numbers aren't gaudy for many players, the accumulations are fine.
Now lets look at pitching:
Like a lot of my other teams this season, I really wanted a strong pitching staff, even more-so with an IP limit. I should have a good chance to win all pitching categories with the aces I was able to accumulate with Price, Greinke, and Carrasco. This year more than seasons past, it feels like there is a premium on pitching and I was happy to get a good amount of it early in the draft.
Overall very happy with this team and looking at the team projections both on yahoo and FantasyPros, i should dominate. Granted all projections should be taken with a grain of salt, i was very happy with this team going of of my own projections alone.
There's not a formula to build the perfect team and every draft is unique, but for others drafting Yahoo Pro League teams, I hope this snapshot is helpful to you.
Feel free to leave a comment or question, and i'll get back to you.
