Head 2 Head Strategy

Hey guys, my first year playing in a H2H league.
Seems to me that punting a category will affect you alot less. What you guys think about punting wins and running with good K, MR's and Closers each week. Foresee problems?

It's a lot easier to punt in H2H, especially when there are more cats than just 5x5. I like punting saves more than wins, but either way is ok. The only problem with punting wins is that it might affect your K's as well.
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

i agree with rynman. MR's get less K's than starters along with IP. So by replacing starters with MR's, W's, K's, and IP can go down. Another thing is that middle relievers can have bad outings just like any other pitcher. Except when they have a bad outing they get pulled after an inning (maybe less) while starters tend to be kept in for more innings. Therefore, a MR's ERA and Whip can bolster more significantly than a starter's after one bad outing.

you'd be better off replacing bad closers with top notch MR's and punt saves.
