The first month of the 2018 Major League Baseball season is in the books, which means it’s time for the first monthly FBUK Update of the season.
Over 650 fantasy teams were registered for the 2018 game. Thanks to the support of BaseballSoftballUK, we are pleased to be able to offer a range of prizes again this year. The overall champions of the Main Game, $5m Game and Limited Trade Game will receive a special ‘FBUK Champion’ engraved baseball bat. The winners of each division in the main game will receive a specially-branded baseball – either representing the MLB club that their division is named after or with the FBUK logo on. There will also be a small prize for the best monthly fantasy performance in the form of an Oyo MLB minifigure.
FBUK All-Star Team of the Month: April
Based on fantasy points accumulated, here’s the month’s top performers at each position:
Manager of the Month: April
Congratulations to Daniel Perrin, the first Manager of the Month of the season. There were no ifs or buts as his team, Pain in Yoenis, made sure of the award with the most points between 1-30 April. Last year, Daniel finished in the Top 10 with his team Borussia Teeth, also winning the Giants division and the monthly award in May. Judging by the early season form, his new team certainly won’t be bringing up the rear in 2018 – at the time of writing, he sits second in the Main Game.
Fantasy League Standings (Top 10): Up to 6 May
Stuart Burnett, who finished fifth in last year’s Main Game and second in the $5m Game with his teams Flux Capacitors and The 5 Million Dollar Men respectively, is the early season pace setter in both those games. Ludo Basse, who won the Main Game in 2015 and followed it up with the double the following year (Main and $5m Games), is making a strong case for a comeback with his new teams Stantonomore and Tanking in the Main and $5m Games respectively.
Thanks for playing, and good luck for the rest of the season!
