You may do well in K's just on picking up the extra innings, but wins are unpredictable. I just don't see why you would do it...Is it me?
It really only makes sense in H2H. Actually, one of the main pitfalls of H2H. You trade all your pitchers for hitters, so you likely win all the hitting cats each week. Then you just pick up garbage off the wire every day, and collect as many RPs as you can. You do well in saves, punt ERA and WHIP, and run enough SP's through that you win W's and K's. You end up 7-3, 8-2 most every week. It's cheap, it ain't baseball, but it wins.
