Fantasy Baseball is a completely different beast than Fantasy Football. Do you have the time and focus to pay attention every day. You really need to be fair to yourself and the people in your league. I hate when I see guys having someone on the DL in their starting lineup. If you don’t have time to play, don’t play.

Watch your rules as well. I play in a few different leagues and each league has its own rules. Check to see if there is a year cap on transactions or a weekly cap. Check and see if OPS counts or BA. Check what is counted when playing head to head before drafting and draft accordingly.

Today’s article will give you the top 1B, 2B and 3B as well as a sleeper. Each week you need to play the waiver wire. A baseball fantasy story each week with rankings is a little outlandish and unnecessary. I will be writing each with players with quality matchups, people from the waiver wire to look at and pitchers who will have two starts. You’re choosing players each day and not just one day a week.
