Default league settings in Fantasy Baseball

New to the game, and not sure how your league is configured? Well, it depends on the type of league you're playing in. Once you've got that part figured out, we've laid out the default settings for each type of league.

Default settings by league type

Public settings don't differ from league to league, but will change depending upon if you have chosen to play in a Head-to-Head, Rotisserie or Points league.

Custom Leagues will default to the Public League configuration if the commissioner doesn't change them at the time of registration.
