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.

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.

Likewise, foot injuries are hard to overcome for hitters and pitchers, especially if it's to a plant foot that gives the player power to swing or throw the ball.
Patience Is Not A Virtue One Month Into The Fantasy Baseball SeasonIf you have veterans who are not performing after one month of the season, it's time to let them go.
