As far as SPARPs go, Cristian Javier is one of the best.

Often, I get asked the best approach for someone who wants to start writing or podcasting about fantasy baseball. I tell them while it’s a crowded industry, there’s always room for new voices – especially those in marginalized groups.

One piece of advice I give is that they should find a niche and something that makes them stand out. For as crowded as this industry is, the lack of points league content shocks me, as more and more leagues are creeping up each year.

Mind you, it’s hard to cover all points leagues since it’s hard to find a true standard scoring system (CBS Fantasy default scoring does it the best), but still, it’s easy enough to discuss the format as a whole and allow the audience to adjust based on their own league.

I love points leagues, and they are a nice change of pace from the tried and true category and roto leagues. They are especially a good gateway for those new fantasy baseball players who are looking to branch into the marathon season.
