In a Rotisserie league, teams accumulate points based on their players’ performances across various statistical categories such as points scored, rebounds, assists, etc., in the case of basketball, or home runs, RBIs, stolen bases, etc., for baseball. The teams are then ranked in each category, receiving points according to their rank. For example, in a ten-team league, the top team in a category might receive ten points, the second team nine points, and so on.
The key to success in a Roto league is building a well-rounded team that can compete across all categories, rather than dominating just a few. This format requires a different strategy compared to head-to-head leagues, as it’s about cumulative performance over the entire season. Managers must be adept at balancing their team’s strengths and weaknesses and may need to make strategic trades or waiver wire pickups to improve in specific categories.
