Fantasy Baseball Postseason: Home Field Advantage?

     Fantasy Postseason Staff

Success in postseason fantasy comes with choosing high performing players on teams that advance deep into the playoffs. A key component in determining which teams are going to advance is home field advantage, or is it?  The statistics say that postseason home field advantage varies tremendously from sport to sport.  Per Bleacher Report, NBA playoff home teams win roughly 70% of their series, NFL and NHL playoff teams win about 60% of their series/games, and MLB playoff teams win just 50% of their series.

Keep this in mind as you figure out which players to draft in your upcoming MLB postseason fantasy draft.
