LAST CHANCE: Beat the Experts!

Updated On: March 4, 2020, 3:13 pm ET

Last year, four fantasy experts from Rotoworld and Yahoo! got together at the NBC Sports Studios and competed against eight of our Draft Guide users in the second annual Rotoworld Live MLB Mock Draft. This year, we're going to be ramping things up and not only will we conduct a live draft, we will play out the league for the full season, truly giving you a chance to beat the experts!

For those not familiar with the event, the Live Draft will pit eight Rotoworld MLB Draft Guide users against four experts - D.J. Short and Drew Silva from Rotoworld and Andy Behrens and Scott Pianowski from Yahoo. Using Yahoo Sports' draft platform, we’ll be drafting for a 12-team, 5x5 league. At the conclusion of the draft, another Rotoworld writer will blindly grade the draft to determine who had the best draft. 

Matt Stroup and Patrick Daugherty, veterans of the Live Draft, will be on hand to provide commentary, and Ahmed Fareed will be hosting the live event.   

All Draft Guide users will be eligible for the final eight spots in the Live Draft. If you're a subscriber, and you're interested, contact us at draftwithrw@gmail.com(Must be a subscriber by March 5 at 9 a.m. ET)

Plus, the more Rotoworld premium products you purchase, the more chances you have to be selected! If you are a Draft Guide user, you can receive one chance. If you are a subscriber to both the Draft Guide and Season Pass products, you can receive three chances. And if you're a subscriber to our MLB DFS Toolkit, Draft Guide and Season Pass, you'll receive five chances.

But even if you aren't selected for a spot in the Live Draft, Rotoworld users will have the chance to see how the experts go about their draft. Rather than the standard exercise of reading through an expert mock draft, you will get reaction, analysis, strategy advice (and maybe a bit of trash talking) in real time. Plus, it’s going to be a ton of fun to see what our experts think of the “Average Joes’” draft choices!

Live coverage from NBC Sports studios begins Tuesday, March 10, at Noon ET on TwitchYouTube Live, social media, the NBC Sports App and NBCSports.com/Live (time subject to change). 

If you have any questions or comments for our experts during the broadcast, you can participate by commenting on the various platforms throughout the draft. And don’t forget to share amongst your fellow fantasy baseball fans as well.
