Fantasy Sports Trade Association Holds First Fantasy Baseball Draft of 2016

Fantasy Sports Trade Association and their experts conducted the first official fantasy draft for the 2016 season thus kicking off the fantasy baseball season. The FSTA put together a 13-team league and drafted their respective teams this week at the fantasy industry’s annual winter conference. At the conference were representatives from Scout Fantasy, Rotowire, USA Today Sports, Fanastistics, Baseball HQ, Sirius XM Radio, Fantasy Alarm and a few other companies and websites.

With the first pick in the FSTA Fantasy Draft Dr. Roto of Scout Fantasy selected Paul Goldschmidt of the Arizona Diamondbacks. Following Goldschmidt was Mike Trout, Bryce Harper, Clayton Kershaw, Nolan Arenado, Carlos Correa, Josh Donaldson, Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo, Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, Manny Machado and Edwin Encarnacion in successive order.

The first closer to come off the board was Wade Davis of the Kansas City Royals who went also to Dr. Roto in the 6th round. This gives you an idea about how the experts rank these particular players and maybe it can help you at the beginning of your fantasy draft.
