When does fantasy baseball open for 2018?

New to the game! Wanting to start a league this season though. Im trying to find the date(s) where I can start it up, so I can get my friends together and give them the low down! When can drafting begin? When can I start setting up my leage?

The game usually opens right around the Super Bowl.

 

Drafting can begin when the game opens.

Yahoo! does not post the date when the game opens.

 

Previous posts have stated the first week in Feb and around the super bowl, which is the first weekend in Feb.

 

Telling your league 1/25 or 1/26(corrected) is setting yourself up to look bad.

Actually you are right and wrong.

 

You are wrong because Yahoo! does not come out and publish a specific date their games open.

 

You are right that some folks, like me, checked "important dates" in the help section and found that Yahoo! had updated that info before the game actually opened.  However, that help section was not published in a forum, article or location that was easily accessible by all players.

 

Yahoo! learned from that mistake, and no longer posts the updates to the help section regarding "important dates" until the game actually opens.

 

https://help.yahoo.com/kb/fantasy-baseball/sln14218.html   the dates are 2017 dates.

The baseball launch date has 0(zero) to do with the super bowl squares game.

No exact ETA but sometime in early Feb is most likely. Keep checking the Yahoo Fantasy homepage for updates.

Last year, registration opened on January 26th. That was 10 days before the Super Bowl.

Last year it opened Thursday Jan. 26.  the year before that it was Thursday the 28th.

 

I would think it would open Thursday the 25th

Your post is neither acceptable nor worthy of a kudo. For more substantive information, see the the 2 posts below yours. Neither one is filled with Yahoo generalities.

The above post is for Brian B, who claims to work for Yahoo. I find this very believable.

CORRECTION: Change that to AlexB. (Maybe I could work for Yahoo.)
