2016 Fantasy MLB

PostPosted: 2016-Mar-Thu-05-03

I decided to make a new post for Baseball since the season is long and this can reach multiple pages.

Scoring Changes from last year:

Draftkings

1. Stacks are now a max of 5 hitters on a single team, last year it was 6.

2. The Penalty for Caught Stealing is removed. YAYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!! :clap :nanner

Fanduel

No negative for Outs. Before it was -0.25pts if your batter got out, now it's 0

Strategy

1. Stacking in Fantasy Baseball is like Peanuts and Crackerjacks. Ideally you want to Stack 1-5 from a high power team(Jays) or when a team plays in Coors Field.

2. Batter vs Pitcher Handiness - Lefty vs a Righty / Righty vs Lefty. Hanging pitch against an opposite handed bat = most likely Home Run.

3. Weather - Keep an eye on it. Also wind is important. If it's blowing out at Wrigley, Load up on Hitters.

I'll post more towards the season starts on under rated guys I think can have a good year. My early opening day Stack teams : Arizona Diamondbacks, Reds, and the Minnesota Twins(Sneaky)

Hi flyerstakedown,
I was browsing around the site for a while and bumped into this - so cool to have found these fantasy sport threads too!
Thanks for the heads up on the changes :)
I got into DFS a while ago actually, the guide I found here really helped me getting started (great for beginners with a lot of basics, but some valid strategy points in there as well), but it would be great to share with and learn from an actual human being too - I'd look forward to that!

For Sunday :

P Marcus Stroman
P F. Liriano
C Russell Martin
1B E. Encarnación

3B Josh Donaldson
SS Troy Tulowitzki
OF Starling Marte
OF José Bautista
OF Andrew McCutchen

With only 3 games if you want to play more than 1 lineup and separate yourself, stack the Royals against Harvey with the Pirates against Wainwright. If I could play on draftkings I would take that shot in the moonshot. Low ownership in a not the greatest looking match up on paper in a pitchers park. Why do I recommend them? Harvey has been dealing with a blood clot and I can see him being on a pitch limit since Wheeler is on the DL and the Mets can't afford an injury. Also with baseball, variance is key, anything can happen on any pitch
