I need someone to take me under their wing and show me the ropes.  I've never played H2H or daily roster changes before, and the only other time I've even played fantasy BB at all was several years ago.

just start marlins when they are playing us.

Basically, you compete with an opponent for a week. During that week, every game that your team plays in will rack up stats. So ideally, you want to get players who can give you the necessary points (.OBP, HR's, RBI's, SB's, ERA, K's, SV's, etc etc)

Pretty much your offense won't need much of a change unless they get injured or on an off day and you have the depth to fill it.

Pitching is pretty much what you'll need to switch every day. If you have a starter who isn't starting that day but you have one on the bench who is, you'll have to switch them.

Also, remember to draft a quality closer or two. Saves are a pretty big deal.

We ran the live draft too early last year, but now we'll know the starting rosters for each team.  You want to avoid having bench players on your roster.  Players who are part of a platoon are also questionable.

Why? You're going to have days without a full roster, (but don't worry, your weekly opponents will likely have the same problem.) Thursdays are often travel days and a lot of teams get Mondays off.  By using bench or platoon players, you'll have even more open, unproductive slots.  I did have Nix for an extended time last year, for the home runs he hit out of the park. 

You only get 2 DL slots, so there's a good chance they'll get filled, and you'll be forced to use bench slots for quality players who are injured. 

You should look at your roster before the games start.  ESPN puts a big red box next to a player who is not going to start.  You want to replace him with someone from your bench, if you can.  But you can't always be sure if someone in a west coast game is going to play either.  A player getting a day off sometimes will pinch hit anyway. 

If your player has been stinking and keeps getting benched, you'll start looking to dump him and get a free agent or make a trade with another manager.  That's the fun of fantasy - finding gems to improve your lineup.

In the Live Draft, you can have it display based on ESPN's Projected 2012 Results or the 2011 Actual Results, or toggle back and forth.  I do NOT put much stock in the so-called experts who almost always overrate rookies.

imref has requested to be in the league. Two spots have opened for imref and JMU.
imref still has NOT claimed Team 13 in this 14-team WNFF Head to Head league.  We need to set the live draft too.

:razz:  at your "official" league. Roto underground kicks ass. :poke:

Sometime tomorrow evening would be best.  Later (9:00ish) would be better for me, but whatever works for everyone else is fine.

Here. I'll reset the poll since it looks like everyone wants a late time. I'll try and distinguish between 8-9-10, etc.

Also, does anyone think I should add another scoring category to make it 11? That way we can lessen the chances of a tie? Just up in the air.

Week One in the WNFF H2H league is running from March 28, 2012 through Sun April 15, 2012. 

It's giving retroactive credit/punishment for the Oakland-Seattle games played in Japan Mar 28-29, before our April 1st Live Draft.
