Be uber-safe in the first four to five rounds

1.  Whoever said you have to take risks to win, didn’t mean drafting injury prone or unproven players in the first round.  Players like Troy Tulowitzki and Matt Kemp have obvious stud potential. They also bring with them some pretty hefty injury baggage. Ever try playing in a league with no first round pick? Didn’t think so. Well, that’s what might happen if you roll the dice on one of these guys. It’s easy to get caught up in thinking what might happen if they stayed healthy. Just make sure you remember how it feels when your most valuable player went on the 60-day DL. As tempting as these players are, go with a player you can count on taking the field for 150+ games. It may be cliche, but it’s also true. You can’t win a league in the first round, but you just might lose it.
