HOW TO USE

Batter Independent Fantasy Points (BIFP) - Projected Fpts is based on Batter Independent Fantasy Points (BIFP) and BIFP allowed by starting pitchers. BIFP is a measure of fantasy points produced solely via the individual batter vs. pitcher matchup (assumes no baserunners or subsequent batters). The only RBIs and runs scored counted are in the case of a homerun where the batter is assumed to score and register an RBI for batting himself in. BIFP is based on the hitter’s last 50 plate appearances versus L or R.
