How does rotisserie scoring work?

Postby lcp0209 » Fri Mar 30, 2007 6:21 pm

I'm in a 12 team yahoo league that allows daily roster updates.

How are points distributed?

Is there a week-long "game week"? First place in a categorie gets 12 points for that category?

Thanks for helping a noob.

Rotisserie scoring is based on standings in each category. For example, in a 12 team league, the team with the most cumulative home runs gets 12 points, 2nd place 11 points, 3rd place 10, etc., down to 1 point for last place. The same is done for all the scoring categories. You add up your team's points for a total, which is compared against the other teams' for the overall standings. In categories like batting average your team's total average (total hits/total ab's) is used--which is why a high average hitter that plays a lot and gets more ab's is worth more than a high average hitter with few ab's. That is also why Adam Dunn isn't rated very highly ;-D

Rotisserie standings change as the season goes along and the winner is determined at the end of the season since everything is cumulative.

Thanks what does max games played (180) and max innings pitched (2000) mean?

Do people drop and add backups a lot so they have as many guys as possible playing every day?

That is correct.

That's why games/innings limits are used; to prevent an owner from "churning" his players (usually pitchers) in order to boost his cumulative stats like Ks, HR, RBI, SB, etc.
