So what's YOUR strategy? Because that's an impressive win percentage.
Don't have one.
I have many.
Strategies depend on league type, scoring settings, opponents etc...
But the constant is that you have to prepare, and have up to date information.
You have to prepare for your draft. Draft is essential, to build a good team.
I start to prepare in January. But some start their preparation in November.
After the draft:
Analyze your league mates strenghts and weakness'.
Than, analyze your strenghts and weakness'.
Compare all teams.
If results show that you looking good, than sit back and relax. After 5 minutes of rest, you can start to plan ahead with your pitching in ROTO.
If results show that you're in trouble, than start drawing up trade possiblities.
After season start:
In Roto, don't lose too many games played.
In H2H prepare for your opponents. Every team is different compared to your team any given week.
For the next matchup, I start my preparation on Friday.
Check out you hitter's matchups.
Check out your opponents hitter's matchups.
Make a plan, what you want to achieve.
You don't have to win all the categories, but you want to win as much you can.
Or if things look bad, that start thinkin about damage control.
During the week, adjust if necessary. (most of the times it will be)
So in a nutshell:
Keep your self up to date.
Don't be afraid to make moves.
Don't be afraid not to make moves.
And analyze, analyze, analyze.
All season long.
