Never Give Up In Fantasy Baseball, Even If It Seems Hopeless With Five Weeks LeftDepending on your fantasy baseball league's structure, there's either one week to go before the head-to-head playoffs begin or five weeks to go to the end of the Rotisserie season. Regardless, you should never give up on your fantasy team, no matter what place it occupies in the league standings. Since other owners will give up, you can use that to your advantage in order to finish as high as possible. Your roster just may end up surprising you in the end.
Why Pitching Is The Hardest Thing To Rely On In Fantasy BaseballMost fantasy baseball owners plan their draft around picking pitchers that threw well last year. But as we all learn, sometimes things don't go as planned. Pitchers can get hurt; their performance can drop off for a number of reasons, sometimes without rational explanation. The hardest part for the fantasy owner is accepting that the present season is different than past seasons, and it's sometimes better to just admit you drafted wrong instead of stubbornly sticking with bad pitchers all season—and losing the league.
When It Comes To Fantasy Baseball, Always Beware Wrist And Foot Injuries On Your RosterStrange as it may seem, not all injuries are created equal in sports.
Patience Is Not A Virtue One Month Into The Fantasy Baseball SeasonIf you have veterans who are not performing after one month of the season, it's time to let them go. Someone else has to chance them on the roster; you need players performing right now. So shelve your emotions and make the tough choices that other owners can't—and won't—make. It will help you win in September.
