Draft Commentary

Postby jphanned » Sat Jul 31, 2010 10:11 am

The draft will commence on Monday, August 2. Let's get this thing started. ;-D


Just a refresher for the returners and a note to the new guys -- because this mock draft is used primarily as a learning tool (for both the guys drafting and the viewers), the mentioning of undrafted players is perfectly fine. Feel free to talk about who else you were considering at your spot, how Player A will affect Player B's value, or anything else along those lines.

Congrats on first pick overall, Oleh. I've got the 12/13 turn. Going to be interesting to see who falls to me there.

Just got back in to town, and looks we're starting right off! Looking forward to it.

Though not exactly looking forward to making the 4th pick. Not a fun one this year...

Deadshot said that he was dreading the 4 pick originally but then came to realize that Dirk's the clear pick there. I tend to agree - especially in a roto league, where Dirk's incredibly consistent game and lack of true weakness is awesome. I'd much rather hate to have the 5th pick this year, where it seems like any number of guys could be justified with the pick.

Yeah, after I actually sat down to consider all the options individually there, it became easier. It's not that Dirk's improved, because he's actually on the decline. But it's the fact that everyone is losing value faster than him, while Dirk's situation is pretty much unchanged.

I think a lot of the uncertainty in the first couple rounds this year comes more so from how many of the top 25 or so fantasy players are on the decline, and exactly how far they will decline, and less so from guessing where new emerging fantasy studs will push their way in. That's due partially to the uncertain fantasy results of the Miami 3, and also the fact that a lot of the top 25 have been there for a long time, and age has to catch up with them eventually.

Though obviously, if some of the perennial top 25 fall out, someone's going to come in to take their place.

Really don't like the 7th spot this year, going a few picks later would be fine.

Curry was too ridiculous last year to pass up.
