I'm a H2H FP player personally. I like the reward of all aspects of the game (including more points for extra base hits, pts for walks, etc.) is better than 5 categories. I find it more fun than, like you said, having to rely on some no hit/good speed guy to get me an extra steal.
I understand that 5x5 is more "traditional", but I find that FP scoring is better for the H2H setup.
You may remember him as Joe the Policeman from the "What's Goin' Down?" episode of That's My Momma! Please welcome, Jackson Heights' own, Mr. Randy Watson! Sexual Chocolate!!!
