Fantasy Freestyle

Expert League Assessment: First Quarter

by Mike Gianella


It is difficult to believe, but we are nearly one-fourth of the way through the regular season. It’s that time in fantasy baseball that is early yet not early. If you’re in second or third place and have a slow starting player or two you might not think much of it, whereas if you’re in eleventh place now might be a good time to take a long, hard look at your roster and figure out what you can do to improve your team.

I participate in three expert leagues: LABR, Tout Wars, and CBS. LABR is a mixed league, while CBS and Tout Wars are NL-only. Bret Sayre of Baseball Prospectus and I share the LABR team, while I run the CBS and Tout Wars teams by myself.

Here is how I’m doing so far in each league (through games played Saturday, May 10).

CBS Analysts League (NL Only, 12 team, 5x5): second Place, one point out of first.
