Jose Altuve, 2B-Hou, surprisingly fell to the second round in FNH's May 2016 fantasy baseball redraft.

It's never too early to start second-guessing your fantasy drafts, and here is what our May 2016 fantasy baseball redraft looked like.

First, the draft was a standard 5x5 categories, 10-team, 10-round, snake draft. Next, the participants and their draft order:

  1. Peter Lopez - Fantasy News Hour host.
  2. TJ Wilson - Fantasy News Hour host.
  3. Jacob Bullinger - FNH fill-in host and Superfan.
  4. Brandon McAuliff - Abilene Reporter News Sports Reporter.
  5. Nick Seevers - FNH's Atlanta Braves insider.
  6. Ricky Thompson - Future 32nd District Attorney.
  7. Sam Strickland - Former Blue Jays minor league pitching prospect.
  8. Nick Sherrell - FNH's LA Dodgers insider.
  9. ESPN - Best available.
  10. CBS - Best available.

If you want a more in-depth analysis of the draft, listen to the podcast of last week's program where we discussed the draft.

A few quick notes:

  • Chris sale going 6th overall seemed a bit high, but the first round was otherwise fairly chalky.
  • Jose Altuve falling to the second round - albeit the first pick of the second round - was surprising, especially in Texas, although only half of the participants were native Texans.
  • Even in Texas, Nomar Mazara going 24th overall in the 3rd round was ridiculously high.
  • Jose Abreu going 34th overall in the fourth round was the steal of the first half of the draft.
  • Troy Tulowitski falling to the end of round five was not surprising given his performance so far, but is nonetheless noteworthy.
  • The best round for value was the sixth. Hosmer, Puig, Car-Go, Archer, Cruz, et al., all provided great value.
  • Segura, Freeman, and Samardzija in the tenth round were steals and demonstrate that leagues aren't won in the first few rounds but in the middle and late rounds.
