There is a great post on Reddit right now, asking r/FantasyBaseball what their secret to Fantasy Baseball success is. Reddit is a great place for information on any topic, but there are great sports minds in all different subreddits that you need to take advantage of!  There are currently over 80 comments on this topic!DO utilize middle relievers if you have innings or GS limitsDO draft with player rankings based on your league's scoring settingsDO know and exploit league settings to the full extent allowedDO sign players that actually fill a statistical need for you, not just players that "look" goodDO be patient! It's a long seasonDO sort by average stats and look at the past 30 days, when scouring the waiversDO consider trading multiple (expendable) players for one, whenever possibleDO be careful about trading multiple good players for one great playerDO watch games, especially for pitching evaluations (if you're capable)DO learn how to read / understand advanced stats (xFIP, SIERA, BABIP, etc.). In other words, spend some time on FanGraphsDO NOT carry many bench battersDO NOT be reactionary DO NOT draft catchers earlyDO NOT draft based on positional scarcity aloneDO NOT overvalue saves (aka, "Never pay for saves")
