Fantasy Football Draft Strategy for 2020: 2 QB leagues

When taking a look at a fantasy football draft strategy for leagues that feast on quarterbacks here in 2020 you’ll need solid value at the position in 2 QB leagues.

Taking Young Players?

When you think about the risk in taking certain players that are not proven you want to take those risks later on in the draft, making solid ownership decisions early on in your season long drafts.

In a year of uncertainty for rookies with no mini-camps, OTAs, Pre-Season games, and limited overall training camps these are the highest risk rewards category of players. You want to avoid these players altogether early in the draft.

The prime example of that this year is to give caution to the early drafting of Clyde Edwards-Helaire. Drafting a rookie running abck has historically lead to disappointing results. See my Page: Fantasy Football Draft Board 2020 to make an informed decision on your draftees. Make a value pick if he’s available beyond pick 10 or the 2nd round of a 10 team draft. If taking him below that pick it makes the value of the pick uncertain. Whether he turns out to be a stud with the high powered KC offense or not, I believe the real risk in the pick is due to the great potential for injury . Teams likely will blow through several strings of players on various skill and other positions on the field. This entails the soft tissue injuries that especially happen to young players.

You will need successful high risk/high upside strategy to actually win your league but the key may very well be avoiding those over hyped rookies and 2nd year wonders that are not likely to produce just yet.

I know I have been sort of in the rut of drafting these rookie running backs a little early to get my hands on the value, but this is the best year to go ahead and fade that potential value completely. Its too bad too because there is a lot of talent at the skill positions that just won’t be ready.

What is happening now in training camps

There is talk among NFL sources about allowing more reps for the young players. This will help the teams but it will be difficult to simulate real game experience. This lack of real game experience will also contribute to the risk for me. Older players will handle this aspect of taking care of their bodies as well as catching up to full game speed better then their younger teammates.

Sure it would be great if a rookie were put into a position of starter, and you were on that particular player as you WANT to take the coaches word for it on getting the players’ reps in training camps, however this does not translate to to real NFL production early on.

How will this info help me in my fantasy football draft strategy?

When you take all of these offsetting balances into consideration its best not to worry about a lot of it and focus on getting the best value during your draft which depends on your draft format and draftees. I have been in a few 2 QB leagues with mixed results. At times I took more risks as in recent years but many times took them too early to create correlation and upside.

This strategy could keep you competitive but kill you quickly when it amounts to staying competitive through the playoffs.

How to Dominate 2 QB leagues

The only real difference to creating success in 2 QB leagues is going early and often enough on getting QBs on your roster to avoid a problem later on during your fantasy football season. When you are scrambling week to week to find a starter and Taysom Hill is your best option you only getting 6 -9 points for that spot with a touchdown for your ceiling.

If your league is big into trading, these QB’s create a lot more value for your as bargaining pieces. You can really get a high price for your starting QB when you look at those who need the position. This is guaranteed to happen in 12 team leagues as there is not enough QB’s to go around when everyone drafts at least 3, doing the simple math. As many leagues this year have the extra spots with IR slots available, you can save your injured guys or bargain them for whatever position you want or need.

A couple guys I would like to obtain early and late at right spots.

I would love to get Tom Brady for value as he’s getting drafted as the 12th QB off the board and 51st overall in 2 QB leagues. Picture Peyton Manning type numbers in his first season with the Broncos. I believe Brady could successfully be attempting a season like this.

Another guy I love for the season later on to stash is PJ Walker of the Panthers as he’s got to be the guy once Teddy Bridgewater goes down with injury. He has recent game experience as the MVP of the XFL. In this league it does not get any better then that right now.

You also want to pay attention to who others are drafting and when in your draft so that whenever the run on QB’s takes place you can get in on it before they are gone. As in any draft pay attention to ADP, which you will find on my fantasy draft board page above or below or just check fantasy football calculator for the latest in Average Draft Position.

A Unique Season in Fantasy Football for 2010

This season will in fact prove whether the pre-season is really worth it. Look to my own fantasy football draft board, which most experts don’t give away to gauge where you are on how high or low you are on certain players. While this board does not account for the 2 QB format, you can adjust and move up all of the QB’s as most fantasy scoring formats are good to use with this board as its primary for half point PPR. So if your playing in a standard scoring or full point PPR there’s quite honestly not a lot of adjustment this board needs for either scoring format.

Atlanta Braves Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice

For the Atlanta Braves opening day on 7/23 with the NY Mets this fine day in daily fantasy baseball advice as we run down the probable lineup and taking a look at the starter along with relievers set to come out even though we won’t spend a lot of time there.

Possible Lineup vs. Righty Jake DeGrom

  1. Ronald Acuna: R vs. R on the road I like the MU there’s a chance Acuna can use his power and speed in this game together.

2. Ozzie Albies: R an average hitter vs. Righties.

3. Freddie Freeman: L

4. Marcell Ozuna

5. Austin Riley

6. Dansby Swanson

7. Adam Duvall

8. Travis d’Arnud

9. Ender Inciarte

LA Dodgers Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

Possible Batting order and Draft position:

Be sure to visit our official daily hub at MLB DFS Picks Today page for daily coverage on each slate for Draftkings and Fanduel. 

  1. Mookie Betts: Round: 5, Pick: 21 2011 draft. Considered an MVP candidate in this environment and schedule as well as the contract situation, I would like to see him get back to his 2018 numbers with a wOBA more then .100 higher vs. off-speed pitches. Despite this he was top level elite in XOBA and XBA. If successful by his standards he will really increase value of the team.
  2. Gavin Lux: Round: 1, Pick: 20 2016 draft. As a high draft pick, he’s still considered a prospect with only 75 AB’s as he had a %14.2 BB rate in AAA last yr and SLG .719 with a .490 wOBA as a dominant player in 19′ there.  Quite a bit of power to work with.
  3. Max Muncy: Round: 5, Pick: 11 2012 draft with very near elite level XSLG and wOBA and already at elite level %BB you look to capitalize off a payer in his prime with Excellent pwr u can even play him vs. L as a L.
  4. Justin Turner: Round: 7, Pick: 8 2006 draft: Still top %10 of league in XWOBA so has really not regressed in his career yet despite what standard numbers show. His SO/BB rate went down due to taking too many swings, should come back up to normal.
  5. Cody Bellinger: Round: 4, Pick: 18 2013 draft. 100th Percentile in XWOBA and BA, BAPIP was very low vs. L’s so maybe here’s another guy where it may not matter to play L vs. L other then SB’s.
  6. Joc Pederson: Round: 11, Pick: 27 2010 draft. 36 HR’s resulted last yr from an over inflated %SLG, Only play vs. Righties whether LADs’ do or note.
  7. Corey Seager: Round: 1, Pick: 18 2012 draft Not really playable vs. Lefties. Was down in every category in 19′, let’s wait and see if he will bounce back.
  8. Will Smith: Round: 1, Pick: 32 2016 draft. Has power with over .300 ISO in both AAA and majors last yr. Should split time with A. Barnes.
  9. AJ Pollock: Good exit velocity and decent hitter may not play every day on this team. Possible DH spot.

SP’s:

  1. Kayton Kershaw: Round: 1, Pick: 7 2006: Even though his GB rate was steadily high, his FB rate increased by %5.5. Not as old as you might think at 32, injuries got him. Look for a healthy outlook.
  2. Walker Buehler: Round: 1, Pick: 2015: Allowing .211 BA is about right for his career. 10.6 K/9 last yr. Does a lot of things well, best at curve and fastball spin.
  3. Julio Urias: Not drafted:  We should get enough games started and wins from Urias with this powerful offense and defense that keeps the games low scoring. The Southpaw projects to possibly be an ace this or next yr.
  4. Alex Wood: Round: 2, Pick: 25 in 2012: The big 6’4″ lefty is back in LA after posting a 25-10 record there for 2 years prior to last. Not a fastball pitcher, as he needs the innings and QS’s to be effective.

Closer: Kenley Janson: 33 saves and 5-3 record is what we want to continue into 2020 at that shortened rate. 11.4 K/9s.

Dustin May: Round: 3, Pick: 24 in 2016: Just barely a SO/IP guy as he’s in running for 5th starter role.

Ross Stripling: Round: 5, Pick: 18 in 2012: Started 15 gms but only a 4-4 record. However great GB rate and defiinitely getting 1 SO per inning.

There are a lot more guys to mention including guys who started games, as there is a lot to go around here, in fact too much as the pitching staff as a whole gave up more ER’s last year then they should have. That should be tightened up this year continuing a better tear then last year.

New York Yankees Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

In batting order:

Be sure to visit our official daily hub at MLB DFS Picks Today page for daily coverage on each slate for Draftkings and Fanduel. 

  1. DJ LeMahieu 2009 2nd pick 30 of Cubs

He has improved his exit velocity, ISO, and is just hitting the ball hard with improvement over the last 5 years. His average exit velocity ranked 19t in MLB last year, so this was better then all of his previous yrs in Col. He has an established track record, and upped his hard contact last year, which was hopefully not only an outlier and still in the top compared to the other hard contact hitters in the league.

2. Aaron Judge: 2013 1st round pick 32 of Yankees

Judge is top of the line in Hard Hit %, Exit Velo, and XSLG, which are all great numbers to be in line with. The ISO I would hope would go back up a bit with a healthy hot start.

3. Gleyber Torres: Not drafted. Came up from Cubs A ball in 2014

Torres has put together 2 solid seasons and showed a lot of improvement over 2018 as he lowered his SO rate, while specializing in Homers.

4. Giancarlo Stanton: 2007 Round 2 pick 12 of Marlins. 

Stanton has had streaks of high BAPIP before in his career with MIA, so this high small sample dosen’t matter for 2019. His HR/FB rate is right in line other then a couple spikes in 15′, and 16′. He’s healthy like all of this roster is putting balls in play for summer.

5. Gary Sanchez: Not drafted. 

For the 2nd year in a row hit as 2nd in all MLB for the Max highest Exit Velocity. Other then being hurt, has produced fine power numbers over his 4 seasons with increased ISO over 2017.

6. Luke Voit: 2013 round 22 pick of STL

It seems he may be able to sustain a high 350+ BABIP. Loved his XSLG in 221 AB’s.

7. Brett Gardner: 2005 round 3 pick 29 of Yankees

The sprint speed specialist had himself a really good XSLG season, interestingly his BABIP was very low for his standards, and is HR/FB rate increased showing nice improvement in his extra base hitting.

8. Gio Urshela: Not drafted been with Indians, and BJ’s. 

Without a lot of history as a rookie, the kid shows a lot of slugging potential. He’s hitting the ball fairly hard with a launch angle comparable to some guys higher up in this order.

DH: Miquel Andujar. Not drfated, only been with Yanks.

Getting HR’s off Garret Cole helps his case during this summer camp in intra squad play.

Reserves when needed:

Thairo Estrada: Certainly the hottest reserve this summer, as he’s hit 3 HR’s that I’m aware of. Fills in nicely in the infield especially at SS when needed.

Aaron Hicks: On a loaded team, he will move up and down this batting order, starting for most teams. Has enough power and speed to get hot early as playing time also permits.

Mike Ford: Another guy that gets line drives and on base with a bit of power.

Matt Duffy: Another guy he fills in nicely when needed, has started on other teams effectively used for value in DFS.

P1: Gerrit Cole 29 R  6.5 IP

ERA right in line with Xfip SOs really increased every year.

Cole has been throwing in the backyard of teammate Adam Ottavino, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports. Despite the suspension of spring training and shutdown of team facilities to most players, Cole appears intent on keeping in shape in anticipation of an eventual return to action. The Yankees’ key offseason signing is expected to be the club’s Opening Day starter when the regular season commences. Gave up a few homers but still had an impressive camp as they allowed him to go 5 innings.

P2: Luis Severino 26 R 6 Ip INJURED

GB pitcher giving about 10 K/9

Severino (elbow) is among a group of Yankees eligible to use the Yankees’ facility in Tampa in the midst of Florida’s stay-at-home declaration, George A. King III of the New York Post writes. With Florida’s stay-at-home order set to kick in at 12:01 a. m. ET on Friday, most players will no longer be allowed to gather at George M. Steinbrenner Field. However, the policy makes an exception for players undergoing rehab programs, meaning Severino will be able to continue to use the facility along with a short list of other players including Giancarlo Stanton (calf) and Aaron Judge (rib). Severino underwent Tommy John surgery in late February and is expected to miss the entire 2020 campaign

P2: James Paxton 32 L 5 IP

Should give u 11 K/9 but also 1.3 HR/9 to attack for a sneaky type stack against.

Paxton (back) recently completed his fifth bullpen session since resuming a throwing program in March, Brendan Kuty of NorthJersey.com reports. Yankees manager Aaron Boone provided a positive update about Paxton on Thursday, indicating that he’s “really encouraged” by the southpaw’s progress and that the recovery process from February back surgery has “gone pretty smoothly.” Paxton remains on track to be ready to pitch in games by late May or early June barring any setbacks.

P3: Masahiro Tanaka 31 R 5.8 IP

High GB with 1.3 HR/9  should get back up to 9 K/9 instead of 7 last yr

Tanaka returned to Japan with his family late in March, Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News reports. Many foreign-born players are returning to their countries of origin, so this is not surprising or cause for alarm. The Yankees are not keeping close tabs on Tanaka, as he usually dictates his own preparations during the offseason.

P4: HA Happ 37 L 5.3 IP

Attack with Righties, gave up 28 homers last year very inconsistent

Happ turned heads within the Yankees organization for his performance this spring, Brendan Kuty of NJ Advance Media reports. Yankees vice president of baseball operations Tim Naehring raved about Happ’s showing in Grapefruit League play in an interview with Meredith Marakovits of the YES Network on Wednesday. “Thought he picked up where he left off the last six or seven weeks of last season,” Naehring said. “Thought he came in with what looked to be great laser focus, crisp stuff.” The accolades are no surprise given Happ’s numbers this spring: a 2-0 record, 1.38 ERA and 16:1 K:BB over 13 innings. The southpaw is a lock for a spot in the Yankees’ rotation when the 2020 season gets underway.

Jordan Montgomery: P5 Looks to continue his Summer league play dominance as he performed vs. the Mets not allowing any runs, with a 5/6 IP/SO game. Is an average pitcher who can easily get above average numbers with runn support on this team.

WSH Nationals Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

Possible batting order, changes day to day anyway.

Be sure to visit the main hub for each slate on draftkings and fandeul visiting my MLB DFS Picks Today page.

  1. Adam Eaton: 2010 Draft round 19 pick 6 of Ariz.

I like his numbers as they are reverting back to 15, 16, and 17′ season. Has speed and can get on base. Can do it vs. Lefties as well even though he is a lefty the numbers don’t change. Base stealing better vs. R’s of course. Gets on base .360+ runner and good fielder.

2. Trea Turner: 2014 draft round 1 pick 13 of SD

Had his best hitting season since 16′, as his caliber of player stealing bases as a righty in this lineup is always playable in DFS at the right price. Spring speed maybe best in the league with power for a small lengthy guy at 6’2″. Has green light to steal 3rd creating 10 FP easily. The mindset of possibly in 3 hole instead, shaking this LU up.

3. Juan Soto: Free agent signed to Nats in 2015

Elite at getting on base, SLG, ISO, and nice speed. Can walk with the best of them already, as he should get even better. He is in range with the best hitters in game with 51 barrels. 20% SO rage is fine.

4. Victor Robles: 2014 Free agent with Nats

Got a full season in as a bit more of a ground ball hitter, displaying good speed and base stealing skills. He might be able to improve his power this year. If not he’ll hope to get on base and walk better. Great upside. 23 years old. Great Power/speed potential.

Also having Starline Castro as an option. Decent hitter.

5. Howie Kendrick: 2002 draft round 10 pick 12 of Angels

The savvy veteran jumped up his ISO with the same Bapip. I couldn’t believe his STAT Cast numbers jumping off the screen in X SLG, Xwoba, Hard contact, and SO% along with Velocity. There is no way to go but down.

6. Carter Kieboom : 2016 draft round 1 pick 28 of Nats

Looks like they think he can be a Trau Turner some day, as he would have to develop a lot more power to go along with his potential base steals. Was not a high draft pick but a first rounder several years ago. Not much opportunity. Was a top 10 prospect.

7. A mix of Wilmer Difo, Kurt Suzuki, and Michael Taylor look to try to get on base, and/or pop up a HR every now and then.

8. Swing Option: Eric Thams, looking to hit 5th. Trying to get him in every day.

Astubrel Cabrera. Depding on the split can also use him in DFS. Trying to get the 5th 6th spots in LU here.

9. Yan Gomes: 2009 draft round 10 pick 19 The Catcher had some batting average numbers a lot better vs. Lefties then righties. That’s where he has his power as well at .217 ISO.

DH: Depending on the MU a few guys to use such as

P1: Max Scherzer: 2006 draft round 1 pick 11 of Ariz.

lowest numbers of recent career. Missed a few starts, needs to stay healthy. perrenial Cy young Ace. Hitting upside. still on top of his game. Gave up a couple HR’s vs. the Phillies incl. B. Harper, but lots of swinging strikes, nasty stuff!

P2: Stephen Strausberg: 2009 draft round 1 pick 1 overall of Nats

Healthy world series MVP season. Top 12 Ace in league. injuries have plagued him.

P3:Patrick Corbin: 2009 draft round 2 pick 31 of Angels

The Lefty I recall got really good and consistent with SO upside in the latter half of year. Good K/BB rate at 3.4 despite his SO% down and walks up from 2018 when he had a 5.13 K/BB rate. Expected to be fully stretched out for July 26th start against Yanks at home.

P4: Anibal Sanchez

P5: Erick Fedde

SF Giants Starting Roster: STAT Cast Breakdown

Be sure to visit our official daily hub at MLB DFS Picks Today page for daily coverage on each slate for Draftkings and Fanduel. 

  1. Mike Yastrzemski

An interesting late blooming prospect that has impressive rookie xWOBA, SLG, and pure power. Could be best hitter on the team.

2. Buster Posey Will Not Play this Season.

His SO% went up last year as he provides no value in DFS.

3. Brandon Belt Starting season on injured list.

I was surprised he had a full season of healthy plate appearances and put up this dissapointing season as the prior years he did better in X stats. Has maintained his good walk numbers getting on base.

4. Evan Longoria

Lost his power in recent years, then had a bit of a resuregence in 2019 as he’s improved his xWOBA numbers significantly to .352. SLGing is also well along which is why is getting back up to higher ISO.

5. Alex Dickerson

When a guy who has not played much has high hard contact and strikes out below 20% you may have something if he can keep healthy.

6. Brandon Crawford

Does not exceed anywhere. The savvy veteran is a decent ground ball hitter and fielder. Not much for DFS.

7. Mauricio Dubon

Seemed like he would be a good raw power and speed combo, but not been around too long. We’ll see what he does with an opportunity.

8. Billy Hamilton4

Still a speed sprinter, which shows on his stat cast rankings as #20

9. Jaylin Davis

Has a bit of pop off his bat in only 42 AB’s.

SP1: Johnny Cueto:

Opening day starter should be stretched out to 80 pitches for opening night. We have to remember this was a high GB SP for the Giants in 16′ few HR’s allowed and almost a SO per Inning. Could not keep his HR’s allowed number down in small sample seasons since then.

SP2: Jeff Samardza

An innings guy will get you what you need as the #2 starter in leagues and DFS. Still a decent pitcher overall as he kept his WHIP down to 1.18 and and BB% down to 6. and a 3.5 K/BB over last 3 yrs.

SP3: Kevin Gausman

It looks like Gausman may never develop into and effective pitcher for fantasy other then stacking against on any consistent basis. Has 10K/9 upside for however many innings he can manage before blowup.

SP4: Tyler Beede on 60 day injured. Will miss season.

SP5: Derek Rodriquez

Potential RP spot as nothing has yet been solidified.

 

How to determine Win/Loss record in DFS?

If profiting in cash on a site such as Draftkings or Fanduel, its considered a win. Based on one main lineup. Cash lineups are considered contests where %25-50 of the field are to be paid out a profit from the entry of the contest.

For GPP, because the return is so volatile, if hitting any in being profitable, then that’s win. However the winning percentage is much lower, minimizing the importance of win/loss ratio. What is important is simply profitability, therefore no record is needing to be kept in GPP’s, rather the profitability for the season.

My personal win/loss record as well as any other coaches who put their percentages in resulting from their contests will be recorded here after releasing those same lineups prior to tip off, first pitch, kickoff, drop puck or whatever is required in any other sport in our WFF Discord.

Pittsburgh Pirates StatCast & H2H Points Breakdown

Starring Lineup Overview:

  1. Jerrod Dyson: 2006 Draft – Round: 50; Too high SO rate last yr, needs to bring down or Guillermo Heredia: Not drafted; You can only play him against Lefties.
  2. Bryan Reynolds: 2016 Draft – Round: 2, Pick: 18; His BA and SLG should drop down to normal rate unless he really progresses in this short season.
  3. Gregory Polanco: It may be fairly easy for Polanco to bounce back to his 2018 seasonal type numbers.
  4. Josh Bell: 2011 June Draft – Round: 2, Pick: 1: We’ll hope he gets hot and stays that way, as he’s way out of his usual numbers. Drop down possible.
  5. Adam Frazier: 2013 June Draft – Round: 6, Pick: 13: The Lefty has average numbers all around.
  6. Colin Moran: 2013 June Draft – Round: 1, Pick: 6 , Another league average hitter which is fine.
  7. Kevin Newman: 2015 June Amateur Draft – Round: 1, Pick: 19, Can get on base and steal so use vs. righties. Should be up more in order.
  8. Stalling, Maile, or Murphy splitting time. This lefty can get some SO’s at a low price kind of similar to Archer.

Universal DH: Unknown at this time.

Starting Pitchers:

Trevor Williams RHP: 2013 June Draft – Round: 2, Pick: 5; If they can get towards max hitting out of their to 5 hitters which is possible Trevor will get you an above average win % for points, DFS, and if he can get back to his 2018 stats he would be a solid option.

Chris Archer RHP: 2006 June Draft – Round: 5, Pick: 25; A high upside SO pitcher who can be taken as a contrarian perhaps on larger slates for that. Gives up too many walks.

Joe Musgrove RHP: 2011 June Draft – Round: CAs, Pick: 13, Overall: 46Decent pitcher but susceptible to Lefties giving up .334 wOBA against.

Mitch Keller RHP: 2014 June Draft – Round: 2, Pick: 23; Went well over 1 IP/SO rate getting 12 K/9. Hot prospect now and upside for DFS. 95 mph high end prospect fastball thrower better vs righties by about an earned run so there’s a spot to attack with lefties.

Steven Brault LHP: 2013 June Draft – Round: 11, Pick: 23 Not really a DFS or Points league option.

Keone Kela: Closer with 24 saves 2 yrs ago.

More Starting lineups notes:

  1. Jerod Dyson Lefty but throws R

30 steals last year unfortunately he can’t get on base with much consistency nearing bottom of league numbers in all categories of batting. Does have an above avg walk rate at 10% avg is 8%. Can play him both vs. lefty and righty.

2. Bryan Reynolds S

.387 BAPIP or batting avg for balls in play. not much of a base stealer but showed good pop with .189 ISO and 16 HR in his rookie yr. Expected BA of .296.

3. Greg Polanco L

Needs the AB’s to back into the swing of being a 20 homer 10 steal a yr guy.

4. Josh Bell S

SlG, Woba Exit Velo and hard contact elite last year. What worries me is if he’s a Jesus Agular. Bell fell badly in the 2nd half of season.

5. Colin Moran L

Improved his batting numbers except declined in OBP. Maintains .277 AVG. line drive rate of about 25%.

6. Kevin Newman R

OBP of .353 resulting in .800 OPS despite lack of power. 16 stolen bases. BA .308

7. Adam Frazier

Played a lot with 608 PA, average hitter in all respects. no upside.

8. Stallings, not a good player, no power spent too much time in minors now 30 yr old.

Gerrimo Herredia R

was batting 1st in LU for Rays in 10 games last yr. mostly bottom of order but Good hitter vs. lefties only.

 

Korean Baseball – Game Time for KBO

Here is a quick guide for the KBO the Top Korean baseball league in south america. If you are a casual observer or a fantasy baseball player, this will help you get up to speed with whats going on and how to get started following in general.

Where to go to watch South Korean Baseball?

As unusual as these times are we have a protected mask oriented league ready to play real regular season baseball. We may even have live and replayed broadcasts on ESPN, for more details on that go to ESPN here. It already appears this is set up.   Korean Baseball KBO

Why would I want to watch KBO?

Well if you are a baseball fan, you will love the fun and excitement that it brings to the table on a daily basis you might love the KBO. There are no games on monday however, monday’s are too busy anyway if working a regular job at home.

The league is really stacked with top talent at all positions and has MLB players who are re-working their game and Korean prospects who will enter the MLB game in the near future. There are even a few pitchers and hitters that you may recognize in the game from previous MLB experience.

Also its an all fun league with total allowances on celebrations with bat flips, dugout celebrations, and other unwritten laws of MLB.

Here are some resources to get you going, too much excitement stirring up.

What is Korean Baseball (KBO) Similar to?

Fantasy Baseball anyone?

If you are also a fantasy baseball guy or gal, you will want to jump into the action as you will undoubtedly know several of the players already, I think of it kind of like the XFL but better based on the players and longevity of the league and very similar rules to MLB.

Here is the main place or hub you will find MLB coaching from myself temporarily as we will still focus on baseball at least until the MLB season starts. Check here for updates and resources on how to go about it daily. These games per EST time zone start very early. 1 AM., So whether your considering this night or day for you, I will have my basic take on any given slate given daily as a recap from the games that recently finished or are still going on early in the morning, as well as a projection based lineup you could play in daily fantasy and an idea on how to stack a team to win a tournament. You could easily win some cash using these methods.

IF just starting out playing daily fantasy baseball even for the first time, this daily information will help you start winning in a pandemic shortened MLB season. If you learn from the strategies I am teaching be sure to check here on any day or night you are playing.

I will also continue to recommend all of the best resources in the industry for the sports and slates. I am personally playing for you for Korean baseball in the KBO.
