  • This is actually a Fantrax league, so you have to register there, but if you want to try a different site, Fantrax has some great options.

    Basic setup: you get 25 players on your team: nine hitters, 12 pitchers, and four bench players. There's a maximum of five starting pitchers, so most teams go with five SP and seven RP. You can change your lineup daily, so if you have injuries, you can immediately replace those players without having to wait till the end of the week.

    See the full details on scoring below, but the scoring is very deep, with lots of Sabremetrics-based, advanced stat categories, such as DICE, OPS against, WHIP, outs recorded, home runs per nine innings, inherited runs stranded, etc. for pitchers, and slugging percentage, weighted on-base average, OPS, runs created, etc. for hitters. We also have holds, relief appearances, and saves for relievers.

    Feel free to join and then have a look around the league before deciding whether to stay. No hard feelings if you delete your team.

    The live draft is Sunday, March 20 at 10 AM ET, so if you can't make it, you might not want to join this league. Of course it's possible to pre-rank your players and doing auto pick draft, but most people like to draft live.

    We play multiple matchups per week, to balance out the schedule so that everybody plays everybody else at least 2-3 times during the season. The playoff system is a four-team battle for the championship over four weeks, with each match up being two weeks long. This makes it less random.
