FOX Fantasy Baseball includes four scoring systems:
- Rotisserie: teams are ranked within each statistical category in the league. Points are awarded based on rank for each category. The sum of the points is the team's point total. For example, the team that hits the most home runs in a 10-team league earns 10 points for home runs and the team that hits the fewest home runs earns 1 point. If two teams tie for second in home runs, they would each earn 8.5 points ([(9 + 8) / 2].
- Teams earn stats based on players in their starting slots only. Standings fluctuate often as team category rankings change. The maximum points a team may earn in a league is always # of teams * # of categories. The minimum point total a team may earn is # of categories. The team with the most points at the end of the season wins the league.
- Total Points (private leagues only): players earn points for events defined by the leauge settings. The sum of the player points for active players yield the team point total. For instance, if the league awards 4 points for a home run and a player hits two home runs, he earns 8 points. The team with the most points at the end of the season wins the league.
- Head-to-Head, Each Category: similar to fantasy football, each team plays another team each week of the season. This scoring system uses the Rotisserie scoring model. Whichever team ranks higher within each category earns a win and the other team earns a loss. Category ties are awarded when two teams tie for a category. Each matchup's win-loss-tie total is added to the cumulative team record and winning percentage to determine rankings and playoff eligiblity.
- Head-to-Head, Total Points: similar to fantasy football, each team plays another team each week of the season. This scoring system uses Total Points scoring model. The team with the higher point total earns the win for the period. Each week's decision is added to the team's cumulative total. This season-to-date record dicates winning percentage.
It's also important to note that only players in a team's starting lineup slots earn stats/points for their team. Players on the bench do not.
