Beyond that, a good starter would pitch 200 innings, those guys will combine for about 130 innings. That being said, there ratios will probably be unbelievable when compared to starters, so their impact on your ERA could be like that of one great starter.
OK I'm new to this, but isn't this the idea, especially H2H - you use your great starter on the day he starts. Then, you put in these MR guys. You're going to have WHIP and ERA locked down if you've got, like, Shields, Zumaya, Broxton, let's say. If you've got a decent closer, you're likely going to win that as well with vulture saves. So now you've got three out of 5 cats owned, and since you're already using your starter on the day he starts, you're probably going to win Ks as well. Since you have all these MRs because you emphasized hitters in the early rounds, you're going to win the majority of hitting cats as well. Tah dah?
