I'm a big FF guy, and spend time at the FF Cafe(Vikes_Fan2823 :-) ) and I was just wondering about fantasy baseball. I know you look for yards and TD's are bonuses in football, but what stats do you want in fantasy baseball? Hits? RBI's? I know HR's are a bonus, but what is the main stat?

Most people tend to draft Ichiro or Juan Piere and think everything will be OK if they get a few steals. But the best thing to do is draft players that can get these (H, AVG, RBI, HR) and steal 20 bases. That way you dont have a guy who just steals but 8-10 guys who do it all and the steals will add up.


If I could get 4-category players and have them all be able to steal 20 in a season, I wouldn't mind... O:-)

Depends on what type of league you are looking to play.

3 main different ones:

Roto
H2H
Points

Once you figure that out, then you need to know what scoring catagories are used in the league.

After that, then it's a lot easier to rank the player's by value and know who would be the best in your scoring system. :-)
