MLBDepthCharts is excited to announce the launch of our Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit for the 2013 season. We ramped up our fantasy coverage last year and received great feedback so we decided to take it a step further this season.
The Draft Kit offers tons of information that is sure to put you in position to win your league this season. It's never to early to start getting ready and we're happy to do all the digging that goes into draft preparation that many of you don't have time for.
Extremely easy to navigate through, the kit will help you find those hidden gems that the rest of your league won't know about. We've included tons of unique features that others don't have. The Draft Kit is Updated Daily and accessible on a password-protected page so you won't miss a thing!
Check out the bottom of this post for Subscriber Testimonials on this product.
The kit is available in PDF and Excel formats for those of you who like to edit your own rankings.
