Masters Fantasy Baseball Leagues - League Scoring Guidelines

Masters Fantasy Baseball Leagues are 12-team leagues using a 5x5 Rotisserie Scoring System.*

Hitter Stat Categories: Home Runs, Runs Batted In, Batting Average, Stolen Bases and Runs Scored.

Pitcher Stat Categories: Wins, Saves, Earned Run Average, WHIP and Strikeouts.

The maximum number of points that a team can earn is equal to the number of scoring categories within a league (10) multiplied by the number of teams in the league (12). Similarly, the lowest number of points that a team can earn is equal to the number of scoring categories (10) multiplied by one (the lowest score that can be achieved in any category). So, the lowest point total possible is 12 (12x1) and the highest is 120 (12x10).

Standings reflect cumulative season stats and not any single-day accumulation of stats. Your total may rise or fall from day-to-day depending on how your rank in each category was impacted by the addition of the stats from the most recently completed day.

Weekly Starting Lineup

There are 23 active lineup spots, which are:

  • 2 Catchers
  • 1 First Baseman
  • 1 Second Baseman
  • 1 Shortstop
  • 1 Third Baseman
  • 5 Outfielders
  • 1 Corner Infielder
  • 1 Middle Infielder
  • 1 Utility Players (any hitter)
  • 9 Pitchers (900 minimum innings pitched required)*

*If you fail to meet the minimum innings requirement, you will automatically be dropped to last in ERA and WHIP. Should multiple teams violate the inning requirements, they will all be dropped to the bottom, but remain in the order they finish (best to worst).

The players that are not in your active lineup will be on your reserve roster. Your reserve roster will consist of 5 players – regardless of position (batter or pitcher). There is no disabled list.

Deadlines: The deadline to change your starting lineup is on Monday of each week. You can change a player's lineup status up until the player's game begins on Monday as long as it does not violate the starting lineup rules.

Players are only eligible to play at the position(s) designated by Masters, and some players may be eligible at more than one spot.

All managers can set rosters for dates in the future by going to the proper day on their team page and making the needed changes. However, all future lineups will be lost if a current player is dropped or traded, or if a new player is added to the current roster.


*Every attempt will be made to run with 12 team leagues. In some instances we may have to run with 11 or 10 teams. Under no circumstances will we start a league with less than 10 teams.
