Wait until the last minute to research players and even come up with a strategy.
This probably won’t end well for me.
I have to dust off the books when it comes to fantasy baseball because I haven’t participated since my junior year of college. I was in a league my sophomore and junior years, and I wasn’t good at it. At all.
It doesn’t help I used the “set it and forget it” method.
I’ve also did fantasy football once and came in second in my league. That seemed a little big easier, maybe because there are less games. I just really liked my team’s name: All Hail New York Giants.
(Like from the movie Madagascar when they meet the little lemurs.)
The names of my other two baseball teams were #GetBeard (it was the year after the Red Sox won the 2013 World Series) and Say ReYes to the Dress.
This time, we’re doing a snake draft, which is a million times better than an auction. (That was the style of my first draft, and it took over three hours.) So I just have to have a list of players I’d like to draft. Which I don’t yet. (Well, as of this afternoon.)
I printed out 2018 projections for positions, so hopefully I can make some sense of that. My fall back plan is to try to draft the entire Red Sox, mostly because my team’s name is #FlowBros.
My fear is that I’m going to over think it too much. I think going into the draft with a general idea and backups is the best bet and see what happens. Worst case, you can always offer up a trade into the season.
If we all end up sinking, I want “My Heart Will Go On” to play in the background.
