6X6 league

Postby NY Yankees Fan 2004 » Mon Feb 21, 2005 5:08 pm

I have only done Standard 5X5 roto leagues before, but this year I am thinking of making one of the leagues that I am Commish of a 6X6 league

It would be holds and a different Offensive Cat.

For those of you that play with Holds, How are league with Holds?

Holds would be a cool category...it adds players who usually aren't in the mix (mid relievers) into the equation. should i try it? i commish a 6X6 with OBP and Losses, should i do holds instead of losses?

Do yourself a favor and stay with standard 5x5 Roto. Holds? Come on. I just finished drafting a Holds league and you get into stunning debates over the value of Ray King, Steve Kline, Antonio Alfonseca and JC Romero among others. If that rocks your boat then by all means. Putting 4 MRs on my roster for no other reason but for Holds is something I find absolutely silly.

Except that it's not simply for holds. Top MR dominate #3-5 starters and second tier closers in WHIP and ERA, and are competitive in wins. I've explained elsewhere why I like holds, so just search on my name and "holds" and you'll find it. But, holds make you create a more realistic pitching staff, reward managers who stay active and watch the waiver wire, bring a very good group of pitchers into the mix, and are just as valid a measure of pitching performance as wins or saves (in other words, not very good, but fun for the league). Why duplicate pitcher value with K/BB, when you already have WHIP and Ks? Bring something different into the mix.

Holds isn't a bad category for a 12-team mixed league. But in deeper leagues, MRs have no problem finding their way onto fantasy teams.

I don't think there is a consensus pick for the 6th category for batting. I would vote OPS though.

I would go with OPS and holds. Holds lets players into the mix that would have never been drafted in a normal league to shine. Ray King, for example. OPS is one of the best ways to measure a hitter because it covers nearly anything.
