Has anyone ever been part of a league where you were able to completely exploit its rules and use them for your advantage? Currently i'm in a 10 team H2H league with absolutely absurd stat categories. The stats are this
offense- runs hits HR's RBI's SB's total bases batting average on base % slugging %
pitching- Iinnings pitched wins saves strikeouts ERA WHIP WIN%
as you can see this league is extremely offensive dominant. On draft day I drafted predominately offense. In fact, I didn't draft a pitcher until the 8th round (which was Chris Young). Because my offense has been so good, i'm winning every single offensive category every week, which in turn is giving me victories because there's more offensive categories than pitching categories.
now here are some notable rules in the league... no Waivers no max IP max transactions per week is 5
Because of these shoddy rules i'm streaming pitchers and loading up on closers to net me the innings pitched, wins and saves categories. I'm doing this because of a lack of a IP cap and no transaction max. There's also no Waivers, which makes adding/dropping players easier. Is this the most exploitable league you guys have ever seen? What are your experiences with exploiting a leagues rules to win the league?
Were you aware of these rules and scoring categories going into the league? You're strategizing, not exploiting or cheating. My advice is to, in the future, simply not play in leagues of this nature and look for things that are more tailored to suit your ability and competitive nature.
