Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Winning Fantasy Baseball, Larry Schechter discloses the secrets of his proven methods. Packed with commonsense, easy-to-use strategies for beginners through experienced players, Schechter supplies readers with a toolkit to achieve the most important thing in fantasy ball--winning!

Some have called Schechter one of the best fantasy baseball players in the world. He is a two-time winner of the CDM Sports national salary-cap challenge, having defeated 7,500 competitors in 2002 and 6,000 in 2005. He is also a six-time winner of the renowned Tout Wars experts league and a one-time winner of the USA Today-sponsored League of Alternative Baseball Reality (LABR).

Readers will learn directly from the champ everything they need to know about:

•    how to project player stats;

•    how to convert those stats into a specific value;

•    strategy for snake drafts, and mono-league and mixed auctions;

•    selecting teams using a salary cap;

•    playing in keeper leagues;

•    and performing in-season management.

Although the book is primarily about fantasy baseball, many of the concepts also apply to fantasy football and other fantasy sports.  

Synopsis:

Play smart.

Play to win.

Play like a champion.
