Transitioning from Fantasy Football to Fantasy Baseball: The Big Switch

While I consider myself a pretty solid Fantasy Football player (winning $1,500 in the RotoBowl isn’t too bad, right?), Fantasy Baseball, however, scares the hell out of me.

Instead of having a week to prepare your Fantasy Football roster, you have to make decisions daily in Fantasy Baseball on who will start and who will sit. For season-long football leagues, you need to build a team for the ups and downs of a 16-game NFL season. For Fantasy Baseball, you have 162 games to account for.

I could continue running away from baseball, but 2015 is going to be different. This year, I am going to transition from a pure Fantasy Football player, into a Fantasy Baseball player, and chronicle my epic journey along the way.

Helping Fantasy Football Fans Everywhere

Now if there is one thing I learned about Fantasy sports writing, it’s that the fan should always come first. You don’t care if I take down a million dollar tournament or lose every single game, but you do want the absolute best advice possible for your team. That is what you deserve.

With my access to veteran players and some of the brightest up-and-coming minds in the business, you will have all the tips, strategies and advice you need in this reoccurring series to transition from a Fantasy Football player, into a Fantasy Baseball player.

What to Expect From this Series

If you already are a Fantasy Baseball stud, then kudos!  — but then this isn’t for you. This series will be for all my Fantasy Football friends who, up until now, have been too intimidated to try a different Fantasy sport.

Like I said, I have access to some great writers, analysts and players, and I plan to annoy the hell out of them until I learn everything there is about Fantasy Baseball!

Fantasy Baseball Advice for Fantasy Football Fans

When transitioning between two different Fantasy sports, the best place to begin is with similarities and differences between the two.

Here is what you can expect to learn this season:

  • Where to start your research
  • Scoring formats and how to utilize it to your advantage
  • Understanding how players score you points
  • Drafting
  • Roster management
  • Daily games vs. season long
  • Everything in between!

The first step is always the hardest, but we’re in this together! No more, “I’ll try Fantasy Baseball out next year” for us. In 2015, Fantasy Football players are going to make it happen.
