Easy to use Draft Room
About the Draft Room and a couple of Draft Tips:
All available Players listed are playing that day, there are injury updates for affected players, OPRK is the ranking of that players opponent against that position, FPPG are average fantasy points scored per game, when you click the players name-updated player news will be displayed.
Prices currently displayed are opening day projections, player values will change as season progresses (The studs will be more expensive).
Scoring is a little Batter Heavy, The batters salaries will escalate quickly.
Quality starting pitchers can accumulate points quickly and will always be expensive.
Getting under the salary cap can be difficult at times, I usually start with the cheaper sleepers for the day and add the big name stars with available cap space.
