We’re now a month and a half into the season, meaning the dust is beginning to settle in the Staff Keeper League 3 (SKL3) here at RotoWire. Contenders are beginning to make moves to jump into the top spot, sellers are starting to rebuild their team for the future, and everyone is looking to pick up the top free agents on a weekly basis. Starting today, I will be doing a weekly rundown of how the FAAB process worked out in SKL3. FAAB bids process overnight from Thursday to Friday each week, with each owner having a $100 budget for the season.
Having the early season blues with your season-long baseball league and having regrets over drafting the likes of Starling Marte, Noah Syndergaard, Madison Bumgarner and Josh Donaldson.
Well, you don’t have to worry about that in the daily format and also the RotoWire/FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Championship tournament with three more rounds to qualify.
The tournament is a bi-weekly competition that allows participants to compete for cash prizes while attempting to qualify for the championship contest.
The RotoWire/FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Championship tournament is running from April 5 through June 14, with three more chances to qualify for the final round, which takes place on June 28 where you’ll compete for an extra $2,000 in cash prizes plus RotoWire subscriptions. If you finish in the top-25 on the overall leader board, you are as good as in. Inquiring minds can learn more by clicking here.
For the first time this season, I landed my top bid (though not the highest bid player) in my NFBC Main Event. Though I’m still reeling from two major blows (losing Madison Bumgarner to injury, not getting a competitive bid on Cody Bellinger), my feel for the FAAB process in my respective leagues has improved. At least, that’s my line and I’m sticking to it.
Without further ado, here are my results for the week:
It’s hard to believe that we’ve already traversed an entire month of regular season baseball in 2017. It feels like only yesterday that we were praying for the excruciatingly-long spring training campaign to finally come to a close, while overthinking our draft boards and convincing ourselves that crazy strategies such as drafting more than three Padres hitters was a good idea (it wasn’t). The beauty of daily fantasy sports is that you can butcher your season-long drafts and still have fun competing against your peers with a new team every day. That’s where the RotoWire & FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Championship comes into play. The tournament is a bi-weekly competition that allows participants to compete for cash prizes while attempting to qualify for the championship contest, which will take place on June 28. Contest details and entry information can be found here, but the Cliffs Notes version is as follows: the average of your top three scores will appear on the leaderboard, and the top 25 will compete in the championship for an addition $2,000 in prizes along with goodies from your friends at RotoWire. With four qualifying rounds remaining, it is not too late to get in on the action.
For the second consecutive week, bidding in my NFBC leagues was fervent, as some viable options presented themselves after a tepid first week of bidding. Unlike last week, I “won” some of my options, though I still came up short on my top priorities once again. Bid results after the jump:
The 2017 baseball season is off to a blazing start for some while it’s limping along if you have had the myriad of players that have been placed on the new vaunted 10-day disabled list.
But for the daily folks who are currently enjoying another installment of the RotoWire/FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Championship, you don’t have to worry about that 10-day disabled list.
The RotoWire/FanDuel Fantasy Baseball Championship tournament will run from April 5 through June 14, giving you six chances to qualify for the final round, which takes place on June 28. If you finish in the top-25 on the overall leader board, you are as good as in. Inquiring minds can learn more by clicking here.
With the early games today (remember to set your lineups early!), I’m going to post quick FAAB results now and hope to jump in after the fact with some commentary. A pair of A’s, Santiago Casilla and Kendall Graveman, were the two most frequent targets in my leagues.
Mixed LABR (15 teams, standard 5×5 scoring, draft in February, had one FAAB period last week):
