You wait all year for your fantasy baseball draft, and when it finally starts, all you do is tell your leaguemates to hurry up because it’s taking too long. Now imagine doing a practice draft with a bunch of randos where the results don’t really matter? You’d be lucky to make it until Round 4. Fortunately, Fantasy Pros’ Mock Draft Simulator can help you practice your draft strategy against expert rankings in minutes.
The Fantasy Pros Mock Draft Simulator is fully customizable to your league’s settings. You just set the draft type (snake, auction, or custom), number of teams, roster positions, player eligibility, and scoring rules. You can even set your draft position if you want to know what it’s like starting your draft with the No. 1 pick, No 12 pick, or any pick in between.
From there, you can either simulate an entire draft almost instantly or make your own picks, which takes a few minutes longer. Depending on the rankings setting you use (consensus, CBS, Yahoo, ESPN, etc.), the Fantasy Pros Mock Draft Simulator will simulate picks for the other teams in your mock. Fortunately, it doesn’t always default to the highest-ranked player, which gives the draft a more realistic feel. You might try to wait a round to grab your favorite sleeper only to see him get snatched up a few picks in front of you — something everyone has had happen to them at least once in their real drafts.
Fantasy Baseball Mock Draft: Practice your draft strategy
Perhaps the best thing about Fantasy Pros Mock Draft Simulator is how quickly and easily you can practice different strategies. What would your team look like if you waited until the 10th round to draft your first pitcher (or outfielder)? How about if you drafted a bunch of starters early? What if you prioritized steals and grabbed three speedsters in the first six rounds? You can even live the impossible dream and ignore closers entirely, just to see how stacked the rest of your team would be.
