Used the ballers for tier based drafting last year for the first time and ran into an issue that i luckily remembered ahead of time for this years draft.
My question has to do with picking the best available player. Tiers are set so that you are encouraged to draft players in higher tiers so that you avoid drafting some people too early.
So, for example, if you used tier based drafting, say that by the middle round you’ve accumulated 5 RBs and 3 WRs. At this point you really feel like you need more WR’s, but based on the tiers there are still 2 RB’s available in the tier above a fresh batch of WR’s. Do you “draft the best available player” and take a RB knowing you’re likely going to miss on a batch of WR’s, or do you drop a tier and take the highest WR.
I’m essentially wondering what’s more important (in the draft, ik things can be fixed and changed via trades and waivers through out the year) drafting the best available player, or filling team needs?
