It depends what exactly you mean by the "best" spot. I have found ZERO correlation between overall fantasy success and draft position. To quote Spodog from his link:

Here are the holes that the champ of my main $ league has drafted from the last 7 years:

2001: #12
2002: #5
2003: #3
2004: #10
2005: #3
2006: #7
2007: #1

But if you define "best" by where one just...likes to be...I find that I tend to enjoy drafts more with "bookend" picks (#1 or #12) if only because I get two picks in a row and I find the whole process less stressful. I can always address a need.

You can win from anywhere, but I actually like the first or last positions. You get to draft back to back picks, and therefore don't have to worry who is going to fall to you. You also have more time between picks to prepare, which helps especially in the later rounds,
It's time to put down the crack-pipe and step away from the keyboard.
