My Fantasy Investment Portfolio: Major League Players I Own Across Multiple Leagues

by Scooter Hotz


This past weekend, I had my last two auctions of the season, my AL-only league on Saturday and my NL-only league on Sunday. While I love fantasy baseball, there is a sense of relief that comes from closing the book on drafting and auctioning teams for the year. With a few days of perspective, I repeated an exercise I performed last season and took a look at which players I owned the most often across my seven leagues.

Here’s a high-level rundown of the configuration of my seven leagues:

  1. AL-Only rotisserie, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 14 hitters & 10 pitchers, old-school 4x4, includes BP’s own Mike Gianella
  2. NL-only rotisserie, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 14 hitters & 9 pitchers, standard 5x5
  3. Mixed rotisserie, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 14 hitters & 9 pitchers with 12+ reserves, standard 5x5
  4. Mixed rotisserie, 12 teams, snake draft, redraft, 9 hitters & 7 pitchers with 5 reserves, standard 5x5
  5. Mixed head-to-head, 10 teams, snake draft, keeper, 11 hitters & 8 pitchers with 5+ reserves, 6x6 (standard 5x5 with OPS for hitters and QS for pitchers)
  6. Mixed head-to-head, 12 teams, auction with $260 budget, keeper, 11 hitters & 9 pitchers with 6+ reserves, 6x6 (standard 5x5 with OPS for hitters and OPS-against for pitchers)
  7. Mixed rotisserie (BP staff league), 16 teams, snake draft, redraft, 14 hitters & 9 pitchers with 5 reserves, standard 5x5

Two more notes before I get started:

  • This week, I’ll focus on the major leaguers. Next week, I’ll perform the same exercise for minor leaguers.
  • I‘m in seven leagues, but I can’t have more than six shares in any player because one of those leagues is an AL-only league and another is an NL-only league.

Six Shares (one player)

Matt Moore

My love for Moore knows no bounds, it would appear. The hard-throwing lefty is the only player I own in every league where I can own him for the second year in a row. Multiple owners in more than one league made fun of me for picking up Moore since I always own him and always end up writing about him. One of these years I’ll be right. Right?
