The starters or starting lineup in fantasy sports are the players a participant selects to play for a specific period, such as a game week. The performance of these players during this time directly contributes to the participant’s score in the league. Players must carefully choose their starters based on factors like form, fitness, matchups, and potential for scoring points.
Managing the starting lineup is a core aspect of fantasy sports strategy. It involves keeping up-to-date with player news, analyzing matchups, and sometimes making last-minute changes based on late-breaking information. The ability to choose the right starters can often be the difference between winning and losing in fantasy sports.
