Total points league strategy?

Postby JC » Fri Mar 26, 2004 7:06 pm

Any suggested strategy for a total points league. Not roto and not head to head. This is a weird way to do a league but are there any suggestions on the upcoming draft? i.e. draft all pitchers or draft all hitters.

I play total points (not Roto), but it's head2head.

Whatever your point system is, go to, input the scoring system is into the projections engine as best you can, and run the projections. Use that the base your list on. You'll need to make adjustments based on your own judgements, of course, but that is a better starting point than cheat sheets based on the 5 x 5 assumption.

I'm in a points league that penalizes batters for each strikeout. A player like Rocco Baldelli, who would be fine in a 5 x 5 roto league, becomes very mediocre because he strikes out one hundred times more than he walks in a season. A trade like Baldelli for Mark Loretta, which i would do in roto, I wouldn't touch in points. Same with Preston Wilson, Jose Valentin, etc. The big strikeout guys fall and the unexciting good strike zone judgment guys rise.
