Batting Order Importance


Every Fantasy League Manager needs to consider the position in the batting order that their late round draftees might be occupying. It’s clear that the closer your player bats to the top of the order, the more chances to produce stats to help win your league. Whether it is H2H, Points or Roto, batting order position over the course of the 162 game schedules can affect your hitting categories, with the biggest impact being on R and in some cases HR and RBI.

We have given you players to target and avoid, complete pitching rotations, great player profiles, strategies to drafting, and loads of other relevant advice for your fantasy team. This is just another tool for your tool box.  If you are on the fence over a couple of players to select late in your draft consider batting position as one factor.

These are the average stats per batting order position throughout the year. This is only 1st -8th so both leagues get representation. On average AL hitters get a few more ABs per month compared to their NL counterparts.
