Quick Tips


Stacking Batters From the Same Lineup

If one of your hitters drives in another player in your lineup, you'll jump up the leaderboard quickly with points for both the RBI and the run scored.

Strikeouts and Choosing a Pitcher

Pitchers with a high strikeout rate or who are facing teams that tend to swing and miss have higher potential to post a big fantasy score.

The Importance of Batting Order

Players who are batting higher in the order will get more at bats and have more opportunities to score.
