Good strategy for H2H league.

Postby LUV2BBQ » Thu May 20, 2004 11:54 pm

I'm new to Fantasy Baseball this year. What's a good strategy in playing in a 12-team H2H league?
Thanks!

Thanks!

Depends what the scoring is. It is pretty basic in the one I am in and have learned that top notch pitchers and big power hitters can carry your team a long way. Your pitchers generally have to be more stable and pick up K's, innings, and have a decent WHIP and ERA. You can then get by with lesser names for the hitters as long as they can generate some HR's and extra base hits for your team.

In a CBS H2H where its 1 for a single 2 for double so on and so forth I ALWAYS get offense first 5 rounds.Then in the 6th I usually grab a stud closer like this year I got Rivers.Then I grab a good pitcher if tehy are there.If not I get more offense with the thoughts of trading for that stud pitcher.

I like to have a solid lineup on offense with no holes.

1 stud closer and one with high up side but forgotten like Benitez and one junker like Graves

Then I fill in with Peavys Sheets Pineiros and them types and mix in there 2 start weeks.

There's a guy in my league that rotates one or two SP's in and out of his lineup every day. Is that a wise thing?
Also, due to a terrible autodraft and me not knowing to pre-rank players (It was my first team, after all) my Closers are Smoltz and Rhodes. Should I just punt the Saves stat and pick up a Otsuka-type RP for low ERA and WHIP?

I am right with you LUV with this being my first H2H season (although I've played roto for 13 now). So far the most effective strategy I've seen is tons of power starting pitchers with a rotating off-man (a guy you drop each day to pick up the best available start). Hitting is much closer to roto style where balance counts but it again leans more towards the power hitters that can get you three categories weekly.

Would love to hear from those more seasoned in the H2H style their experiences on H2H winning strategies.

Scoring is standard 5x5.

Been lots of good discussions the last couple months. Search on "H2H" AND "strategy" (all search terms).

To start:
http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=59483&highlight=h2h+strategy , and
http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=56135&highlight=h2h+strategy , and

Maybe more than you wanted to know, however....
