Rotisserie League

Postby brandon_wyer » Sun Feb 18, 2007 10:26 am

This year I'm going to be in only 2 leagues, one Head-to-Head and one Rotisserie. I always get in too many leagues and end up not spending enough time on them to make them contenders. I heard Rotisserie was a lot of fun too, so I figured I'd give that a try for the first time. Here's the problem: I don't know anything about Rotisserie leagues and how they work. I was wondering if any of you guys could give me the basics of a Rotisserie league, how they work, scoring, etc. Thanks, and by the way, it's on Yahoo.

Roto..say you have 5 teams. Your team has 10 HR's, my team has 8, the other teams have less.

You get 5 points (as in 5 teams)..I get 4. If you and I tied with 10 we each get 4.5.

I've never done H2H but I love roto..what else would you like to know?

Yeah that is basically it. You are ranked it each category from 1 to however many teams there are in the league for instance 12.
The person with the most HR's get 12, the next get 11, etc.
Then the points in each category are added up for your point total. It changes every day based on the games the night before.

Here is what I didn't like about it, at least the way Yahoo did it. You wake up in the morning and see that you lost 2 points from your total. It doesn't really tell you where you lost them from....You'd basically have to remember where you were in the rankings yesterday. It seemed to me very hard to figure out where you were dropping in the rankings and/or gaining. I also think it is very hard to gain any ground if you find your self in the middle of the pack. The biggest point swing from one day to the next I saw in our league last year was 8 points, and nothing else was even close to that.

Just one man's opinion.

I prefer Roto to H2H, because there is less "luck" involved. The team with the best stats wins, instead of whoever had a lucky match up that week.
