Not a newbie myself, but figured this was the most appropriate forum for my question.
Long story short: later this week, I'll be teaching a class in fantasy baseball 101 to a group of newbies. I'll have the basics covered - snake vs. auction, h2h vs. rotisserie, some draft and management tips. But I thought it'd be cool to run a class exercise that might make the class a little more interactive.
Given: Class is between 60-90 minutes long, and has 5-8 students. My only idea thus far is to run a small mock draft - maybe just the first 5 rounds or so.
Any thoughts? Suggestions?
How do you get a job teaching fantasy sports?? I want in!!
Here's a couple ideas.
Excercise 1: Daily Lineups
It's Sunday, morning. Lineups lock in 30 minutes. Your H2H game is really close and you trail Hr's by 2, SB's by 1 and AVG by .004. All the other categories are pretty much locked up and you trail by 2 (6-4). How do you set your lineup given who's on your team and who you are facing. Give themboth lineups, how many games each player has played each week, who is playing on Monday, etc.
Excercise 2: Scoreboard Watching.
It's now Sunday night and you are staring at the last game to be played on Sunday night baseball. You trail in BA by .001 and you and have 1 player left to play. How many hits and how many AB's do you need to assure yourself of winning the game
