Draft Strategy & Advice
Learn how to prepare for your draft, properly value players, and build your team on draft day.
In any given year, pitchers can pitch above or below their true skill set for many reasons – the defense behind them, luck on batted balls, and the quality of the team's bullpen to name a few.
Scouting baseball players is not an exact science. It is a combination of evaluating fundamentals, physical/mental makeup and approach. Building a fantasy roster includes many of the same factors.
Not every prospect is going to pan out. Before you take that flier on the next big lottery ticket, it helps to know how to slice through the hype.
Done right, keeper leagues can be a lot of fun, but it's important to plan ahead.
With the arrival of the Internet, real-time information and large databases, fantasy baseball has many different formats, rules and styles. If you're new to the game, learning the basics is key.
