When it comes to fantasy baseball drafts, we all know that you can't WIN a title with your first-round pick, but you sure as heck can LOSE a chance at a title with that pick.
For further evidence, look at last year's first round in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship (NFBC). The consensus No. 1 overall pick - Matt Kemp - was an MVP candidate in April, but he suffered a hamstring injury in early May and limped through the rest of the season, missing 56 games to injury after playing in 399 consecutive games. But he wasn't the only disappointment from the first round last year. Our Average Draft Positions (ADPs) showed that Troy Tulowitzki's ADP was 5, Jacoby Ellsbury 6, Jose Bautista 8, Joey Votto 11 and Evan Longoria 13. All of those players suffered injuries and were major busts for their fantasy owners. Also disappointing in the first round were Adrian Gonzalez and Justin Upton at 12.
