If you trying to decide between two players with similar 5x5 numbers in the draft, and I can see from the past 3-5 years stats, one consistently has 3 multi homer games a season and the other has never had a multi hr game - who are you going to pick?
It maybe be a waste of time, the players that I might have to decide between may end up with similar multi HR games too, I don't know.
I got in the league last year and got killed on the bonus bombs, so I was trying to at least break even or get into the black if I could this season. I tied for 1st in the 5x5 roto stats, but lost $70 on the bonus.
I'd probably end up just focusing my draft on power hitters in general, then. Get as many big boppers as possible early and often. I know this isn't some revolutionary tactic, and I'm sure you've already considered it. I just think the 'skill' of hitting multiple HR in a game isn't something that can be analyzed statistically with the intent of making a decisions going forward of one player vs. another. If you get the data, though, I'd love for you to share it if it ends up not being the case.
