Staying loyal to slumping players may pan out better for real-life MLB managers than for fantasy owners, so think long and hard about keeping your favorite player in the lineup while he’s going through an 0-for-28 slump at the plate. Those at-bats can really hurt your team down the stretch.
A lot of fantasy baseball owners like to grab a rookie early and wait for him to pan out on the field. That can take all season, though. Sometimes, it’s best to grab the non-flashy veterans with the steady statistics instead, because at least they’re playing every day—and playing at a level you can rely on to win your league.
