Juan Soto

Juan Soto is a perfectly acceptable 1.1 pick in points leagues.

We provide our analysis for fantasy. You see columns, ranks, chats, trade charts, and anything else you want. Except when it comes to fantasy baseball, it’s difficult to capture everything a manager may want since there are so many different ways to structure your league’s scoring.

Never mind the many different ways that roto, category, and points leagues can differ, but the ways that different leagues within those umbrellas can differ can vary in almost uncountable ways.

That’s why it’s important to adjust your league settings with the advice you’re reading, as there’s likely to be a little bit of difference if it’s not straight 5×5 scoring.

But by painting with a broad brush, we can identify the differences in the structure, scoring, and strategy between category leagues and points leagues. While yes, you have the same goal of taking down an opponent (maybe more if you do play all) on a week-to-week basis, the approach can be different.
