If you're punting SB, you'll probably have to move guys like Sizemore down in the OF rankings.

I don't think it's a bad idea to not go for a Podsednik, Reyes, or Figgins type at all (especially in H2H), but avoiding SB completely and intentionally isn't the best idea I don't think.

i think its dumb in either...look at the 2b rankings. why would you ever take figgins that low? regardless of punting sb or not why wouldnt you take figgins over someone like placido polanco or some bum when if you take a willy taveras later on in the draft and have a few combo guys, you'll be fine and at least win sb every other week or get a few pts in roto.

I think that the general opinion that I've heard is this: going into the season intentionally punting a category is a bad idea. Keep in mind you have to be the best or at least near the top in EVERY other category to contend and that is very difficult to do because I assure you there will be at least one team in your league who is getting around 9 or 10 points out of 12 in each cat.

What I've been told is that punting a category is for midseason and you have no chance of even moving into the top half of a cat like saves or steals. Then you trade your best contributor to that category to someone who needs the points there so you can improve in all the other cats. Basically, I think to win you need to be a player, or at least competitive in every category so punting is especially bad at the beginning and bad at any time really. That's just my opinion though.

on the other hand, i just looked back at the standings from my cafe league here from last season and the winner finished dead last in steals so who knows. I just think it's hard to do.

I only play 1 league every year - a buddies H2H league, and most of us employ the conventional strategy of having confidence in one's managing skills that we try to win all the categories from week to week.

There is one manager who really tries to dig deep and figure out which categories he can take to theoretically win the week, maybe by as narrow a score as 9-8, but to try to select the categories and corresponding players to make that 9-8 a regular occurance. He won one year doing it, as it can be quite effective in the H2H playoffs.

Almost certain death in roto if you punt a category. It's so hard to make all those points up, and it's just as easy to draft 10-15 SB guys then punt the whole category.

If you were going to punt any cats in roto, it would be Saves. Don't draft any closers and hunt for them on the WW.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike
