it helps immensely if you pre-rank your players. At least remove some of the 'chaff', like Chris Capenter. If he's still listed in yahoo and his ranking isn't updated, your auto draft will pick him, yet he's not pitching this year. So, at least go through and move some players around in rankings, and remove some players you don't want at all.
Thanks. I do that already. I am wondering if it is better to pick a pitcher early or in the middle of the ranking. Do many pick position players first or pitchers. It seems to me that it is harder to get pitchers later in the season than it is position players. Maybe I am on the right track with the "put down what you want, and figure the rest out later" mentality. Just thought there may be a strategy that I am missing.
