One of the hardest things to figure out before a draft is a plan or philosophy to build a competitive team. In today’s fantasy games, most fantasy managers know the player pool. Many times, winning or losing comes down to planning your attack and staying healthy. However, sometimes you can’t develop a plan until you know your draft position.

The first plan is a prevailing theory shared among many top players in the high-stakes baseball market. I’ll call it PAPS. This core philosophy is built around power, average, starting pitching, and saves. A fantasy manager may land speed early, but it isn’t a target skill for their team development.
