Newly redesigned and rolled out in October 2013
Fantasy Sports R Us went live in December, 2001, and began filling its first leagues for 2002 fantasy baseball.
We filled 4 keeper leagues in that first year; three in fantasy baseball and one in fantasy football. Since then we have grown to 100 leagues. Far and away the largest keeper league site on the net.
Our first redesign of the site occurred in 2007 and that design look took us through some incredible growth years. But we were way behind the times in social media, and while the site had a strong look, the backend had become dated. So what you see today is our 2nd redesign- and our 3rd FSRU.com.
We tried to go a bit bolder. We trimmed the fat of all the outdated articles from 2002 through 2009. We know that some of our pages, like the Hall of Fame page and the League Winners pages, are getting bigger each year and we just left them long.
We added a "Read More" module option so that individual modules on the homepage can be reduced unless the user clicks to read the rest. We really hope you like the new look of the site, and we welcome comments to make "the new FSRU" even better.
We roll out fantasy baseball with five articles written by our newest Hall of Famer, Michael Russell. We just had to pick this guys brain and he did not disappoint. Please enjoy:
Hot Stove Report, Part 1 Explaining the implications of major free agent off season signings and trades. This article covers: Robinson Cano, Sea; Jacoby Ellsbury, NYY; Brian McCann, NYY; Curtis Granderson, NYM; Ian Kinsler, Det; Prince Fielder, Tex; Doug Fister, Was; Carlos Beltran, NYY; Scott Kazmir, Oak; Bartolo Colon, NYM.
Hot Stove Report, Part 2 Part Two of Michael Russel'ls Hot Stove Report. This article covers: Shin-Soo Choo, Tex; Mark Trumbo, AZ; Omar Infante, KC; Adam Eaton, CWS; Jhonny Peralta, StL; Addison Reed, AZ; John Axford, Cle; Jim Johnson, Oak; Joe Nathan, Det; Jose Veras, ChC.
Finding Fat City
A Cautionary Tale of Two Drafts
Fantasy Baseball Lies and Statistics
We rolled out our first cartoon with the new site design on the
FSRU Hall of Fame page. We thought it was important to get that one up as we were also naming our two new Hall of Fame inductees at the same time. Now we have two new cartoons and we hope you will take a look at them as well.
We enjoy using these cartoons to poke fun at our competitors so pay special attention to the cartoon jerseys on the pitcher at
Fantasy Baseball Keeper League and the quarterback on the
Fantasy Football Keeper League pages.
Can you guess which baseball park was used for the baseball page cartoon?
Besides being the largest keeper league site on the net, Fantasy Sports R Us has the distinction of being one of the only keeper league sites that has never, and we mean never ever, closed a keeper league. Amazing Right!
All too often, sites advertise "keeper" leagues and then close them after a year or two because they lose so many team owners. That does not happen at FSRU. When you become a team owner on FSRU.com you join a committed group of serious keeper league team owners.
Check out the consistency of our leagues at:
Fantasy Baseball League Winners
Fantasy Football League Winners
Fantasy Basketball League Winners
Then check back in 20 years. We will have a lot more leagues of course, but the ones you see today will still be here. How do we know that? Because...
FSRU WILL NEVER CLOSE A KEEPER LEAGUE!
FSRU believes in our own history. We track our games, our leagues, and the success of our team owners. As far as we are concerned, it is simply "Respect for the Game," and we would not have it any other way.
Here is a question we get all the time...
Can Canadians join our leagues? Allow us to make the following statement: Obviously, the vast majority of our patrons comes from the Unites States. We provide league services to Americans in the armed forces throughout the world, including Afghanistan and Japan. FSRU team owners play our games from their homes as far as Australia. But truth be told, outside of the USA, the vast bulk of our clientele comes from one country, Canada.
We love the Canadians and we have a bunch of them playing FSRU leagues, and they love us. We welcome you to come play with your American brothers from across the border as well as the many other Canadians throughout our leagues.
2013 FSRU Hall of Fame inductee is.... Michael Russell
Mike began on the site in 2012 with 8 fantasy baseball leagues and monied in every league he competed, winning the Championship in four of them. In 2013, he upped his teams to 18 and ended the season with eight Championship, six second places, and two third places. It was the single most dominant year a team owner has ever experienced on FSRU. Up until 2013, no one had ever been inducted into the FSRU Hall of Fame in less than three years. But after only two years on the site Michael so dominated, well, Welcome to the Hall.
2013 Hall of Fame inductee is.... Jameson Hills
In 2013, Jameson won his 4th consecutive championship in the San Diego Padres League and earned the dynasty tag, and induction into the FSRU Hall of Fame. In 2014 he goes into a redrafting Padres league looking for number five and tying the current FSRU record of 5 consecutive league victories held alone by Ben Brunton. Although many have gotten into position to earn the automatic HOF inclusion of the dynasty tag, Jameson is only the 2nd team owner ever to accomplish the feat in the history of FSRU. Welcome to the Hall.
Fantasy baseball is an incredibly diverse and interesting game. It can be played in so many ways; head to head or rotisserie, auction or snake draft, slow draft or all in one day, mixed league or NL/AL only, with different numbers of teams.
After a year in design, FSRU fantasy baseball money leagues finally opened in 2002 as a site committed to providing top of the industry customer service and prize payouts. While we began with rotisserie baseball, the following year we opened head to head leagues. Now the site operates 18 different varieties of those two games types, and we are about to open our 19th in 2014th season. Check out all the different fantasy baseball games as well as the leagues opened in that game type.
In an Auction Draft league, team owners begin with a set salary to spend and will nominate players which all team owners can than bid upon.
In a Standard Snake Draft League, team owners have 120 seconds to choose their player. Once a player is chosen in any FSRU league, he can only be on one team.
In an Extended Draft league (also known as a slow draft), each team owner will have 6 hours to make each choice of player when it is there turn.
In Biggest Payout fantasy baseball leagues the fees are higher and the payouts are higher, but the game is primarily rotisserie snake.
New for 2014, We open TWO GAME leagues specific to head to head. Instead of playing a single opponent each week, you play two games. We are opening the game in fantasy baseball, but this game will also be offered in fantasy football as well. In its inaugural season we are packaging TWO GAME with our EXTENDED DRAFT game in the New Hampshire Fisher Cats League.
Then tell us which game you want to play. If we don't offer it, it's probably coming.
So if you are playing on a site that tells you to play this game and only this game, it is time to make the right choice: and play on FSRU.
Because we want you in the game!
The 2014 MLB schedule begins in Sydney Australia on March 22nd in a single game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Dodgers. The season then continues on March 30th. Just to be clear, that one game WILL count in the standings. If you are drafting in a league after that date, you can activate players that perform in that game and get thier statistics.
