    I have never played fantasy baseball, ever. In fact, I just now learned how the scoring system works. The only baseball knowledge I have is from watching sportscenter. I play a lot of nba/nfl, I’ve always been a closet baseball fan. Any tips or anything to help me get started would be greatly.. And I mean GREATLY appreciated. (I’m on fanduel if that makes any difference)

    Important to study up on a hitter’s R/L splits and his opposing pitcher R/L splits before putting said hitter in your lineup. Baseball is really just about finding guys with the best odds of having a great day at the plate, regardless of price. That being said, its always good to find a few good value plays (which RG incentives can help you out with) to mix in so you are still able to pay up for a good pitcher. Catcher, Second Base, and Shortstop are typically the positions people look for value plays at. Also, ALWAYS check the starting lineups and weather reports to make sure your guys are definitely gonna play!

    Read Bales’ book “Fantasy Baseball for Smart People.”

    Also, familiarize yourself with and educate yourself on the sabre stats. A few of these are very good performance indicators that can be translated into the daily game.

    Finally, Rotogrinders has excellent baseball content. Top notch.

    Don’t fall in love with your money….

    You will have hot and cold streaks, make sure to ride them out.

    MLB just take it slow. Don’t let one good day/night make you over bet. You’ll go on heaters for a few days then go way cold.
