Basicaly the differenece in roto, is that you have to draft for balance, and more so than H2H. In roto, you do not want to dominate any single cat, instead you should aim to barely win, or be top three in most cats. So to implement this to your strategy what would I suugest?
The answer takes a few steps.
1: Make your target totals for all stat cats. Hopefully these totals are realistic and put you top three in each cat.
2: During your draft, do not punt a cat. Here what I maped out for myself, for each round. These are not written out in stone, because in ever draft players slip farther then you expect. Also keep in mind that you should also try to take the best value i each pick.
Round One and two: I try to draft the best balance of hitting available. Preferbly I would like to draft two 5 cat producers, but If you draft a Tex make sure to draft a player with steals in the next round to balance your team: a Reyez Figgins type.
Rounsd three: I draft the best Sp available.
round four: I try to draft the hitter available, unless one of the very Elite pitchers slips. This happens often in many draft this year.
Round five: If you drafted a hitter in round four Draft a closer, if you drafted a pitcher draft the best hitter.
round six: Draft whatever you did not in round five: a closer, or hitter.
By the way, as the draft progresses keep your targets in mind as you draft players. For the rest of the draft, select the players that fill your a=category needs.
Now on to the season. I only have a few things to say.
1: Trade away strength for weakness
2: Buy low sell high early in the season. For example, last year at the allstar break I traded Brian Roberts for Todd Helton, this trade was the defining moment in my season, as Helton went on a tear.
Hope this helps ';-D'
