Just finishing up Schechter's book. It's awesome. Must read for fantasy players of any sport in my opinion. Makes you feel stupid for not having approached fantasy in his completely logical way from the start.

Agreed. I actually bought the book tonight after reading this thread and I cannot stop reading it. It's fantastic and makes a lot of sense. I have been successful at fantasy baseball, but some of things he says are a "DUH", I feel like an idiot for not doing them before. It takes a fair amount of work, but it can be very useful if you are doing multiple leagues you care about.

This book for fantasy baseball is like Doyle Brunson's "Super System" for poker. It will change how the game is played.

Haha I was thinking the exact same thing, although Doyle's book became outdated. It did have a good run for many years before becoming outdated, however.
