Scoring Categories and Roster Construction Work in Harmony

Scoring categories and roster construction are two elements that guide fantasy baseball owners as they create their teams. That’s certainly the case in the SFRRC Fantasy Baseball League.

We differ from many standard fantasy baseball leagues by requiring teams to start two catchers and three relief pitchers. In exchange, we give owners flexibility with two utility spots for hitters and three for pitchers.

Here are the required roster spots for hitters and pitchers.

Teams have four bench spots that can be filled by pitchers or hitters. The bench works in harmony with the five utility positions to provide owners with flexibility as they prepare for each week’s opponent. You can protect your pitching ratios by using more relievers or you can choose to chase innings and quality starts with starters. Utility hitters give you the option of power or speed.

This type of roster flexibility is fairly common in fantasy baseball because it opens the door to a variety of strategies. Understanding how scoring categories and roster construction works is important for any fantasy baseball owner.
