Head to head vs Roto strategy?

Postby BrewCrew6 » Sun Feb 25, 2007 9:20 pm

ANy differences? I have a head to head draft in about an hour and I am just wondering of any differences between the two types of leagues I may be unaware of.

in H2H it's more important to try to get guys who are consistent throughout the year, as opposed to streaky. in roto, it all evens out in the end...

I disagree. It all evens out in the end regardless of how streaky your players are or aren't in H2H. If they slump for two weeks and then go off for two weeks, they've hurt and then carried your team.

I think the biggest difference is in punting a category. It's much easier in H2H than roto to punt a category and survive. Starting a season with one or no closer is nearly routine in H2H, as is throwing stolen bases.

Big key, stay away from big name players that have up and down seasons. Anytime you have a high draft pick in a cold streak it really hurts in head to head. If especially something like BA where guys can go on 2-17 droughts and kill of any chance of winning the categorey.

Also as the other poster stated steals are less important because they aren't consistant, a guy might get 5 steals one week and 0 the next, single handley win you the cat then do the exact opposite.
