No time to study?

No worries; we have you covered with eight different cheat sheets. Each one includes loads of information, including multiple-position-eligibility listings, positional and overall rank, and 10-team auction values. Just click the one you need and off you go. But remember, these sheets are a guide, a starting point to get you where you want to go: Victory Land. Use them to inform your decisions, to guess what others might do and to keep track of all the names in play. The picks you make, though, are entirely up to you.

Deep Mixed Cheat Sheet

This cheat sheet has enough players listed at every position to easily get you through a 16-team mixed-league draft, with dollar values for a 12-team mixed league and organized by position. Careful; we packed in so much info that the type is quite small and you'll need a fine-point pen to check players off.

Shallow Mixed Cheat Sheet

This is for those of you in 10-team leagues who don't want to risk sacrificing their eyesight for a list of outfielders they'd never consider drafting. Same amount of info per player but fewer by position and larger type. Includes 10-team mixed league dollar values.
