Fantasy Baseball 2018 Early Mock Draft

By
Updated: September 27, 2017

 

It’s never too early to Mock Draft! At least that’s what we say here at ITL. As we got ready to end our 3rd season of the In This League Fantasy Baseball Podcast, like always we did a early look at 2018. We conducted a 12 team standard 5X5 mock with a few of our industry friends in Paul Sporer from FanGraphs, Steve Gardner from USA Today, Ryan Bloomfield from BaseballHQ and Joe Pisapia author of the Fantasy Black Book. We also had some of our insider program (ITL Army) join the mock to give it a really good feel of pros and joes. Below you’ll find the results by round and team of the mock.

If you want to hear a breakdown of the picks listen to Episode 174 with the Mock Draft conversation starting at 26:54
