FanGraphs: The Game 2015!

Good news everyone! You can now make your picks in FanGraphs: The Game for the 2015 season!

For those of you who played in previous years, you will be able to change the team of any of your players up until you first spend money. So, if you want your players to be on different teams, I advise doing it before you make any picks. You can do this on the settings page.

In addition, your player will keep all of his stats from all previous seasons and continue on to year two of his career.

Lastly, if you had autopick set last year, it has now be unset. If you want to keep playing with autopick on, you will need to make your autopick selections again.

And for those of you who are rookies to FanGraphs: The Game…

FanGraphs: The Game is our daily fantasy game, and allows you to create a player and make picks each day to build your player’s stats over the course of the season. Whatever statistics your pick of the day accumulates are then added to your player’s totals.

All of your totals will be tracked on your very own FanGraphs player page and your player will show up on the leaderboards, so you can see how well you’ve performed compared to others throughout the season. (These show last years stats.)

Because each player you create is assigned a position and is affiliated with a specific organization, you have the chance to crack the starting line-up and hold bragging rights over your friends and others who are gunning for that same spot. You can also win awards (weekly, monthly, half-season, and full-season), achievements, and track your hitting streaks.

At the end of the season, the player with the highest WAR at each position will win a free FanGraphs T-Shirt and a 1 year subscription to FanGraphs+. The player with the second highest total at each position will each win a 1 year subscription to FanGraphs+. Please see the full game rules for further details.

Click here to create a player and make your first pick. You can make as many as eight players or as few as one – it’s all up to you. And, since you’re only going to be making one pick per day for each player you create, this is the fastest and easiest way to enjoy fantasy baseball. And best of all, it’s entirely free.

We’ve created a twitter account where you can keep up with accomplishments, leaders, and various news from FanGraphs: The Game, so follow @fgthegame now, and use #FGTheGame to communicate with your friends and others on Twitter each day.

First time player, looks fun I’m a bit confused.

So I just created a starting pitcher for the Nationals. I have a $1000 budget. I see Adam Wainwright costs $10 tonight.

So throughout the season, 100 times I could select a pitcher of Waino’s caliber, and at the end of the season it would sum the stats of those 100 games?

It also says “infinity budget”, does that mean I select as many starts as I can? How do we have a money limit and “infinity budget”?

Thanks!
