Never Give Up In Fantasy Baseball, Even If It Seems Hopeless With Five Weeks LeftDepending on your fantasy baseball league's structure, there's either one week to go before the head-to-head playoffs begin or five weeks to go to the end of the Rotisserie season. Regardless, you should never give up on your fantasy team, no matter what place it occupies in the league standings. Since other owners will give up, you can use that to your advantage in order to finish as high as possible. Your roster just may end up surprising you in the end.
If Your Fantasy Baseball League Has A Trade Deadline, Act Fast To Make A MoveThere's still enough time left in the season to make a trade right now and have it work well for you down the stretch. Study those last-place teams with owners you know well and make them an offer they cannot refuse.
Reliable And Steady Fantasy Baseball Players Are Better Than Risky Rookies Right NowAs Major League Baseball teams approach the final 45 games of the season, almost all of them are giving playing time to rookies right now.

While you may strike gold with a rookie, more often than not you're going to strike out with a first-year player. It's better instead to acquire non-flashy veteran players for the stretch drive, because wise fantasy baseball owners know they are reliable options.
