Two more to add that aren't really under the radar, but have incredible K/9 rates are Joba Chamberlain and Rich Harden. They have a very good chance to be undervalued in leagues that count K/9.

Does OPS replace AVG or is it a 6th category? JACK CUST!

You could consider going with a couple of middle relief pitchers over a starter too. It'll take an extra roster space and probably get a few less wins but there's lots of them that get 9+ k/9 while there aren't that many SP who do.

Daniel Murphy ;-D

Good average hitter, with decent power = sweet OPS. Plus he's hitting behind reyes and infront of Beltran Delgado and Wright. Tons of RBI's and R's. ;-D

Russ Branyan... .250 or less BA, but could have Cust like numbers OPS and HR-wise (with 3B eligibility)

The league still has AVG - it's actually a 7X7 league: R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS, W, SV, K, HLD, ERA, WHIP, K/9

Gil Meche had a career-high K/9 last year with 183 strikeouts in 210 and 1/3. Not sure if that's an outlier, but you don't have to spend a relatively high pick to find out.

Later than that, I really like Manny Parra, Jonathan Sanchez, and Wandy Rodriguez.
