Innings pitched in H2H

Postby greenandgold » Sat Nov 11, 2006 2:47 pm

1250 IP limit is common in Roto leagues and I use that in calculations to make rankings for pitchers. It seems that in H2H leagues there are a lot fewer innings pitched per team over the course of the season then in Roto.

What is the average number of innings pitched per team in H2H leagues?

I am guessing 3 starters @6 innings + 3 relivers @ 3 innings = 27 innings a week. So, over 26 weeks (including all playoffs) that is 702 innings.


Do you draft your pitchers differently in H2H or Roto? Because of these differences, do the top pitchers have more value in H2H then in Roto?

i've never added it up but i know i have quite a bit more than 27 innings a week. i usually set the minimum at around 20. i generally have 5-7 starters and 3-4 relievers. plus some of the starters may have two starts a week. i think there are at least as many innings if not more in H2H due to the tendency of some teams to pick up some starters at the end of the week if they are behind in some stats.

Yahoo doesn't allow for maximum innings in H2H. They have minimum, but not maximum which I'd like to have to combat churning.

wow, I guess my strategy is a lot different and I really underestimate the number of innings thrown. I just try to start a few guys who will put up a good whip and era and hope for the best.
