I was asked to join a fantasy baseball league, and the draft is tomorrow, I just looked at the settings and lets just say I have no idea where to begin.
Yahoo 10 team H2H
Hitting stats: H, R, RBI, HR, K, BB, AVG, Slug, SB
Pitching stats: W, CG, SV, ERA, WHIP, K, BB, K/9, BB/9,
Positions: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, UTIL, SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P (5 BN, 1 DL)
Now I have played fantasy baseball before (but I'm no where near an expert), but I have never played with so many categories. My main question is should I deviate from the normal strategy. I feel that in this format SBs become devalued, while overall strong hitters become more valuable. While pitching I'm not sure because K/9 and BB favor RP while K and BB/9 should favor SP. I was also considering just drafting pitcher heavy in beginning and trying to grab High avg good SB guys in the later rounds and punting the power categories (HR, RBI, Slug) while winning H, SB, AVG and remaining competitive in R, K, BB and hopefully winning most of the pitching categories. Do you feel this strategy will work in a league formatted like this? Any advice would be appreciated as I'm sort of lost in what players I should focusing on in this non-generic league.
