Commissioner’s Corner: The Veto

Commissioner’s Corner: The Veto

After so many years playing this game, one is bound to see all sorts of things that honestly should never happen.

Beginners Guide to Starting a New Dynasty League

Beginners Guide to Starting a New Dynasty League

How should I go about starting a keeper or dynasty league?  This is one of the most frequently asked questions to fantasy analysts in the offseason.  There’s no one right answer, and I’ll be honest – I’ve never been enough of a martyr to run one myself.  Lucky for me, I’m part of some really […]

Fantasy Football is officially over so it’s fantasy baseball time. Owners will begin compiling their rankings, planning draft strategies and gleaning over the winter transactions.

Spicing Up Your Old Boring League

Regardless of whether you play in a redraft, keeper or dynasty league, eventually after years of playing it starts to lose some flavor.  The competitive side of you still enjoys the game, but you don’t have that same fire that you used to have when you first started things.  If this goes on too long […]

Scoring Changes: Quality Starts over Wins

When you look at the basic 5×5 scoring categories, you’ll notice that almost each category is set to measure an individual’s performance over a number of at bats or innings in a game.  If your player gets a hit it counts towards his batting average, if his teammate drives him in your players scores a […]
