If there’s one thing that separates good fantasy baseball managers from the greats ones, it’s the ability to spot start.
Having at least one or two open roster spots, (especially in leagues with 12 teams or less) gives you an incredible advantage over the competition. This allows you to strategically spot start players who have favorable match ups
Just knowing this handy little secret, however, isn’t enough to give you an edge; you must know how to detect a good spot start candidate.
So what should you look for in a potential spot start? Well, I’m glad you asked.
