ANDY BEHRENS: Fifth pick, pretty good. Believe it or not, last season-- OK, it was a weird year, but, last season, this was the winningest spot in Yahoo Fantasy. This is a great place to be. And you're here in a year where there's no consensus number one overall pick.

For whatever reason, Mike Trout is actually falling to five, and he has been the average pick in a typical Yahoo draft so far this year. Mike Trout's pretty good. He didn't even deserve anything to drop from the number one spot. He's great, best hitter in baseball.

You draft him, you're accounting for every hitting category. Then you come back in round two, round three, you get an ace. Now you've accounted for absolutely every fantasy stat. That is a perfect way to begin your draft. Once you do that, plan the parade.
