OPS is just another category. Though you should be using it at least somewhat in your projections/rankings etc if you have OPS as a category or not. But no, OPS is just another category.

Thanks J35J -- Would you use it as the deciding factor between 2 vastly different players? For instance, I will have the option of choosing between Reyes and MCab . I was leaning towards MCab because of his dual eligibility and greater power numbers. Would this be faulty logic if we use OPS instead of AVG in our league?

A sleeper of mine who I really love in an OPS league is Ryan Spilborghs. 15/15/.300/.850 is very attainable IMO.

an ops sleeper of mine is rick ankiel. he had 25 hr in only 413 abs, and posted an .843 ops. a full season hitting in front or behind (+/- a few spots) is always a good thing and a 30 hr season is definitely a possibility. he also doesnt kill your avg like a cust, giambi, jacobs.

Makes perfect sense...if you have two players close in value and then you add another category to the scoring and 1 is quite a bit better in that category you will go with that player. MCab is borderline a better option than Reyes as it is...adding OPS for sure puts him above Reyes, IMHO.

How far up would you move Howard and Dunn with this format? Does Howard deserve consideration that high in the draft?

I have yet to look at rankings based on OPS yet....the leagues I'm doing at the moment don't use it as a category so I haven't looked much into it yet to say how much Dunn moves up....others can probably say better than I at the moment. Howard is already a first rounder as it is so he may move up a couple spots but he can't get much higher than he already is.

I ran the numbers for my league replacing AVG with OPS (so 5x5 with OPS) and Howard was ranked #4 using Chone.

Who were the top three? Pujols was #1 I'm sure.

I deleted it, but it was Pujols and ARod 1/2. I forget 3.
