How to Draft these League Settings....

Postby joepig » Thu Mar 21, 2013 2:02 pm

I'm in a 12 team, 2 keeper league.
Stat Categories:R, RBI, SB, OBP, SLG


Does the fact of having a weekly lineup change affect importance of pitching. I would think it does. If I can't draft a bunch of solid hitting in the early rounds and fill up pitching later, knowing I'd be able to change it daily like most other leagues, I would think pitching would become very important in this league. How does having OBP and SLG affect your draft strategy as well?

Pitching is important but you really can't predict 2-start pitchers at the beginning of the season. When drafting, you may want to consider arms that will face bad teams (Houston!) throughout the year as well as getting a few more arms than usual for your bench for those lucky 2-start weeks. Since there are many pitchers to choose from and your bench may be filled up with pitchers, I would try to shore up on strong offense guys that you don't have to worry about week in and week out. Then you can get those SP4/5 types later in the draft that will give you some depth.

It's interesting that your league counts OBP and SLG but not home runs. I guess go for those under-the-radar doubles hitters?

Draft hitters heavy. Weekly lineup changes lead to more streaming to take advantage of 2 start pitchers.
