NOTE ON STANDARD GAME CHANGES:
Those who have played our legacy Fantasy Baseball game will notices a few changes to the standard game. The name change now refers to this game type as "Prize-Eligible Leagues". As the name says they (still) award a prize to league champ, and all teams are Overall Leaderboard and Uber-Game eligible. In future years we hope to expand Prize-Eligible Leagues to allow for more customization.
Roster size. In a move to make the game easier to play, rosters have been reduced from 25 to 20 players.
Games Started Game Limits - H2H game limits have been imposed to stop streaming. In Roto 120 games started is now the season limit (down from 180 due to the smaller roster size).
NL or AL Only. All standard leagues now use the "All MLB Players' setting.
8/10/12 team leagues. All standard leagues have a fixed size of 10 teams.
Note: These setting are still very much in play by setting up a free Custom League using your own settings. Click here to start a Custom League.
