Standard Fantasy Category setup?

Postby Machines3 » Thu May 15, 2003 10:48 pm

Im making a middle season league and i dont like the categories we have in my previous one so tell me what yours is or whats the most commonly used and help me decide. We dont have era or whip or b avg so let me know what you guys think i should do.

The most common ones in a 5x5 league are,

Runs
Rbis
HRs
Steals
.Avg

Wins
Saves
Strikeouts
ERA
WHIP

I prefer a slight variation in which you remove .avg and replace it with .oba

In a 4x4 league you remove runs and strikeouts.

In a 6x6 league, people add holds for pitching, and I don't know what for hitting.

Hope this helps.

With your league setup, your best bet is to trade all your good starters and just do constant waiver pickups. ERA and WHIP don't count, so you can pile on IP, wins and K's by just grabbing waiver garbage. Plus hitting is worth 2/3 of the points so you need a few good closers and constant waiver moves.

This is what we have in our H2H points keeper league with $260 cap.

Hitting:

Total Base 1
Run 1
RBI 1
Grand Slam 5
BB, IBB or HBP 1/2
Stolen Base 2
Caught Stealing -1
Error -3 (includes DH)

Pitching:

Win 7
Loss -4
Save 7
Blown Save -2
Hold 5
Innings Pitched 1
Earned Run -1
SO 1
Walk -1
No Hitter 20

I don't like the Holds much as it devalues the closers but what can you do.

This is done in 95% of all league's ... Wanna have some fun ... change Hr's to Total Bases and BA to Obp. Who leads the league in doubles anyways? ...? for Pitching .. change ERA to Batting average allowed ... and Wins .. to W-L ..
