I had the privilege of participating in a draft Monday night with fellow members of the Fantasy Sports Writers Association. This particular league includes such fantasy dignitaries as Jason Collette and James Quintong. It also included some friends of The Fix, Moe Koltun of rotoanalysis.com and Nick Raducanu and Tony Mauriello of FantasyTrade411. In this league OBP replaces average, SLG replaces home runs and quality starts replace wins.
By far the most interesting take away from the draft was the handling by the experts of the two-catcher format this leagues uses. There’s no doubt that catchers get some sort of bump in such a format, but I would have guessed that experts might not reach as much as the average player would when two catchers are required. But I would have been wrong. Virtually every catcher went well above their average draft position, some substantially so.
