Best draft picks this year

57 posts in this topic

Obviously league format matters. Play H2h 5X5 12 team re-draft Yahoo pro league and we had 23 rounds of the draft. I would rate the best picks as (with round selected in parentheses):

1. Chris Davis (10th)

2. Jean Segura (21st)

3. Matt Carpenter (19th)

4. Carlos Gomez (10th)

5. Matt Harvey (13th)

Corbin and Marte went undrafted, but could arguably crack this list

players that went late in a 14 team keeper with 28 players per team and have provided outstanding value:

28th round -- Justin Masterson, Fransico Liriano

27th round -- Mitch Moreland, Joaquin Benoit

25th round -- Matt Carpenter, Chris Tillman

24th round -- Hisashi Iwakuma

23rd round -- Matt Garza, Coco Crisp

22nd round -- Jason Castro, Adam Lind

21st round -- Bobby Parnell

20th round -- Hideki Kuroda, Derek Holland, H.Y. Ryu

19th round -- ManBearPuig

Might not completely fit list but Goldy went in 8th round in most leagues but has played like 1st rounder

10 team keeper league, 5 keepers per team, got Gyorko in the 18th, Gomez in the 8th (wish I kept him as a 26th rounder in retrospect, but I had other guys who I thought had better value). Also got Erasmo Ramirez in the 21st and thought I was slick, dropped him, then picked him back up for tonight.

Biggest mistake was not drafting Machado in the 15th. Picked Lance Berkman instead because I was desperate to get a 1B backup and he was the best guy left. Obviously Machado was picked soon after.

Best non-keeper pick for our league was Jean Segura in the 17th.

If by 8th you mean 4th round, then yes. but either way great value.

Ortiz and Cuddyer in the mid-teens.

Gomez, round 12.

Everth Cabrera, 23rd round.

Shelby Miller, late rounds.

Molina, 8th round.

Matt Harvey, 14th round.

Chris Davis after the 10th round (I did not get him).

If 73 ADP is in the 4th round, then yes I mean the 4th round...

In fairness, in a 14-team league would be about 112 players deep for 8 rounds, and even 12 would go anywhere from 81-93..... I think, or maybe 93-105. I'm tired and confused now. But 8th round value for that pick would have to be in a 10 team league... which you do play in according to the signature. He probably meant in bigger leagues, that wouldn't be 8th round value on the ADP alone.... because I thought the same thing at first. But maybe he was implying Goldy hasn't been that good? I'm curious now. I think he's the NL's Chris Davis lite..... he has been a steal even if he was hyped much more than a guy like Davis.

My best pick was Miggy for $57 in my team #1 auction. He has kept my team in it and I'm 3 points out of 1st as of today. I'd repeat if I won this year which would be very cool. I had Trout for $5 last season, and he went for $54 this year-- I'm happy w/ Miggy for $3 extra....

As for team #2 in my signature (I can't fit some other leagues in the signature and it gives me an error if I even try, so I'm sticking to talking about those two only), it needs to be updated a bit, but Segura was beyond the 19th round ... maybe the 21st. Iwakuma was even later. A few other good ones from that league, since it being a snake it is easier to see value. I'll check my picks and the rounds a bit later ...I think Segura was the 21st round. Adam Jones fell quite a bit too surprisingly (as in 4th or 5th, which surprised me...).

I got goldschmidt and Scherzer on back to back picks to end the 10th round and to start the 11th round. 10 team non keeper standard

Goldy was going 4th/5th round everywhere I saw. I don't think this qualifies as best draft picks as much as 4-5 rounds of worst draft picks, where you and your league mates were drafting guys other than Goldschmidt.
