Something as simple as a team saying "screw Holds" in H2H can have a huge disparity between their H2H ranking and their Roto ranking, and won't mean their team isn't as 'good'. It may not be as well rounded, but you don't necessarily need that to win H2H. You also start/sit players differently in H2H than in Roto, especially on weekends with categories up for grabs, ratios, etc. It's a decent exercise, but it doesn't really show a whole lot.

spot on.
Another category people love to tinker with is SB's. A number of rosters in the H2HWS have a SB specialist that sits unless they have a 'fast' match-up for the week, as your SB specialist will kill your OPS.

It lets you know if you're being more unlucky than bad. I did this after a month in my H2H 18 tm league where I was languishing near the basement despite my team looking good on paper. I was something around 6th place, so not as bad as my team was performing, let me know I should stay the course. Last week I ran it again and I would be in 1st by 16.5 points, and this week I took over 1st in the H2H standings as well.
