Yahoo position eligibility - who's value just rose?

Postby Danimal » Wed Feb 02, 2005 10:42 am

With Yahoo's newly reduced minimums for position eligibility (now just five games), who's value just rose as a result?

I think the 5 games are for during this season.

Hmmm. I might have erred, but heck, isn't that still significant for many players? Maybe I'm off base (I just woke up!)

If a position player makes five (5) starts or 10 total appearances at a new position during this season, he will become eligible to play that position in Yahoo! Sports Fantasy Baseball.

ok..after reading the new rules I think 2 guys that come immediately to mind are Reyes and Matsui. From what i've read they will be switching positions and after 5 games they should be dual eligible which makes them that much more valuable.

Once the season gets under way I'd say at least 3 weeks you could have a few more mult-positional players. Not sure whose value this will increase though.
