I never pick in the top half of round 1, and even in auctions, I never bid for them.
Target 1 to 2 hitters ranked between 6 and 12 with both steals and HRs: Turner, Lindor, Jose Ramirez types.
My SP1 will be between 6th and 10th in SP rankings. Cole or Buehler.
Closers: One RP about 8th through 10th ranked, one maybe 15th-18th, and then a flier. WW if somebody doesn’t work out.
Value: Research sleepers and anyone people are undervaluing, especially guys with double digits in HRs and steals. Ramon Laureano for example.
The rest is based on research and feel. If I get person A, then my next moves are B and C.
