Episode 13 – 2017 First Year Player Dynasty Drafts with James Anderson of Rotowire

Updated: February 3, 2017


One of the toughest things for Dynasty teams with minor league systems, is drafting the newest crop of talent, when the overall pool is already taken. We’ve got you covered today! James Anderson from Rotowire joins me, as we discuss the tiers of players available from the 2016 draft class and 2016 international signings! We’ve also do a 1st round mock! Added bonus is a 10 minute interview with Eric Longenhagen from FanGraphs on the 2016 draft class. Find the First round Tier I mention in the episode below.


*Note: I forgot to mention in the episode, as I made a reference to it, but it wasn’t Mickey Moniak that got the tattoo, it was his friend, whom he made a 1st overall pick bet with. I will update it in the next podcast.
