Draft Strategy

Can You Beat The Experts?

by Rotoworld Staff

Last year, four of our experts got together at the NBC Sports Studios and competed against eight of our Draft Guide users in the first annual Rotoworld Live MLB Mock Draft. This year, we're going to be ramping things up and are inviting some of our friends at Yahoo to join the party! 

For those not familiar with how the first event went, the Live Mock will pit eight lucky Rotoworld MLB Draft Guide users against four experts - D.J. Short and Ryan Boyer from Rotoworld and Andy Behrens and Scott Pianowski from Yahoo. Using Yahoo Sports' draft platform, we’ll be drafting for a 12-team 5x5 league. At the conclusion of the draft, another Rotoworld writer will blindly grade the draft to determine the winner. 

Matt Stroup and Patrick Daugherty, veterans of the first MLB Mock Draft show, will be on hand to provide commentary, and Ahmed Fareed will be hosting the live event.   

All Draft Guide users will be eligible for the final eight spots in the Live Mock. If you're a subscriber, and you're interested, contact us at draftwithrw@gmail.com. (Must be a subscriber by March 7 at 9 a.m. ET)

Plus, the more Rotoworld premium products you purchase, the more chances you have to be selected! If you are a Draft Guide user, you can receive one chance to win. If you are a subscriber to both the Draft Guide and Season Pass products, you can receive three chances to win. And if you're a subscriber to our All-In Package, which includes our MLB DFS Toolkit, you'll receive five chances to win.

But even if you don't win a spot in the Live Mock, Rotoworld users will have the chance to see how the experts go about their draft. Rather than the standard exercise of reading through an expert mock draft, you will get reaction, analysis, strategy advice (and maybe a bit of trash talking) in real time. Plus, it’s going to be a ton of fun to see what our experts think of the “Average Joes’” draft choices!

Live coverage from NBC Sports studios begins Wednesday, March 13 at Noon ET on Twitch, YouTube Live, social media, the NBC Sports App and NBCSports.com/Live (time subject to change). 

If you have any questions or comments for our experts during the broadcast, you can participate by commenting on the various platforms throughout the draft. And don’t forget to share amongst your fellow fantasy baseball fans as well.
