For those who are new to RotobuzzGuy.com, I just want to remind you that in addition to the fantasy baseball coverage this site will also be covering fantasy football. And what better way to start your prep work for your upcoming draft than to discuss the mock drafts I will be running throughout the summer and the subsequent analysis of Average Draft Position (ADP) that you should be studying. If you have a RotoWire subscription then you can find my ADP Trend Analysis article series in the blog section of the site.
