Fantasy Baseball Tips
1. The only way to win at Fantasy Baseball is to PAY ATTENTION.
Most champions check their team when ever games are played with
rare exception. If you like baseball, you probably check anyway.
Five minutes a day will keep the last place far away. This is the
only way to keep up to date on Fantasy Baseball injuries, trades
and other team moves. Fantasy Baseball Champs are the ones who last
till the end and keep scouting, trading, and maximizing their scoring
potential. As they say, Fantasy Baseball is a marathon, not a sprint.
2. Going hand in hand with paying attention
to your Fantasy Baseball team is maximizing your starts. At the
end of the season have you used all your innings? Have you used
most of your position starts? If you haven’t you, have left
points on the table. As they say, Fantasy Baseball is a marathon,
not a sprint. It's the last weeks that determine the winner.
3. The Fantasy Baseball Draft. Most players base their entire season
on the Fantasy Baseball Draft. Your team does not live and die with
the draft, but of course it is important. When conducting your Fantasy
Baseball Draft the best advice is to play it safe. Don’t try
to out smart yourself, draft a balance of pitching and offense. Look
at positions that are thin, like 2B for example, and make sure you
get yours. Draft a “sure thing” veteran starting pitcher.
Draft a veteran big bat. After that, use player rankings early in
the draft to guide you in your Fantasy Baseball Draft. Save gambles
for middle and late rounds. Go into the draft with a small draft plan
and some sleepers. Then throw away your plan. The most important thing
during the draft is to ADAPT! Notice what positions are and are not
being drafted. Can you hold off on drafting your first basemen because
everyone has already drafted one? Was there a run on starting pitchers?
You better get one, even if it is a slightly over-priced player. Go
with the flow of the draft and you will do better than sticking to
a plan. If you are new to drafting and your league offers an auto-draft
option, use it. This will give you a safely drafted team. One last
tip for the draft may be the most important. Draft closers. They are
finite. In other words, there are 30 closers day one and 30 closers
on the last day of the season. In most Fantasy Baseball leagues closers
are valuable and can’t really be replaced.
4. More important than the draft is the free agent frenzy that occurs
during the baseball season. Assuming that your draft was not a throw
away, any team can be rebuilt through free agency. Every year major
stars arise and who are undrafted free agents in Fantasy Baseball.
This goes right with rule one, pay attention. Using a scouting service
is a great way to help in this crucial are of Fantasy Baseball. This
is the function of Pro Fantasy Baseball.
5. Trading in Fantasy Baseball. Not a must to win, but if you are
a successful free agent scout, you need to try to trade. You will
be able to replace many drafted starters with free agents. The old
2 very good players for one great player is the best way to improve
your team. You improve a position and open a roster spot for another
free agent acquisition. Opening roster spots is one of the most important
things you can do to help your Fantasy Baseball scouting. Do your
best not to trade any of your "Studs". Trade early when
nobody really objects to trades.
6. Check your leagues point system before the draft and occasionally
during the season. Obvious, but often ignored. Notice during the
season which categories seem to be manufacturing a lot of points.
If you see a point strength in the some category make moves for
players who excel at that category. You will be surprised how you
can stop a weakness on your team and turn it into a strength in
the league. Some leagues, like Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, have a STANDINGS
scoring summary. Use this to analyze strengths and weakness of categories
during the season.
