Well I am in the finals but I have to rely on a bit of luck.
Head to head points league.
My opponenet is loaded with 2 start guys, and I am thinking of countering with heavy closers

Here's his lineup:
Prior @FLA @NYM
Vazquez TOR @BOS
Peavy LA, ARI
Garland MIN KC
C. Silva @CHW @CLE
Lackey SEA, OAK
F. Cordero (6 games)

Who do I counter with?
L Hawkins
W Alvarez (2 starts) @SD @SF
J Affeldt
B Lidge
J Fogg (2starts) CHC, CIN
J Patterson (2starts) NYM, PHI
R Clemens
K Foulke
C E. Hernandez (2 starts) @SF, @MIL
B Penny
R Harden
M Mussina
R Oswalt

Here is what I'm thinking
Oswalt @SF
Clemens @MIL
Mussina @BOS
Lidge (6 games)
Hawkins (8 games)
Foulke (7 Games)
Affeldt (7 games)

My everyday players are decidedly better than his. Can this lineup compete?

Sit back and laugh as the crooked numbers hit the board. ;-)

You pitching rotation looks pretty solid, I wouldn't worry too much. If you have a bunch of counting stats then there isn't much you can do to compete with a guy throwing up 6 2-start guys. Go with the relievers and take the categories you can and hope your offense can carry you.

Bury me a Royal.
