There comes a time in fantasy baseball where many of us decide it’s time to branch out and try a new league. For many of you who spend time reading this site it is safe to say you are far more than the average fantasy baseball enthusiast. Here at The Dynasty Guru we cater to dynasty league owners of all formats and roster sizes and recently I decided to branch out into an 85-man roster linear weights league where I found myself having to dig deeper than ever to find value.
The 85-man league that I participate in holds a Rule 5 draft, International draft, and a Rule 4 amateur player draft. When I took hold of my team the Rule 5 draft had passed so myself and fellow TDG writer George Bissell had begun to prepare for the other two drafts. The international pool is always much harder to figure out since translating stats from other leagues can by dicey but when preparing for the Rule 4 draft we decided a good place to start was organizational track record.
