So just for the 162 game limit, if I am playing say Ryan Howard at 1B and I am putting in Alex Gordon at 1B whenever Howard is not playing, I am going to use up those 1B spots really soon and not get all of Ryan Howard's stats for the season unless I play him at my util spot??
Also, for the 1 game and 1 inning left strategy, do the OFers and pitchers have to be playing at the same time. I ask this because if I have 1 game left and one of my OFers plays at 1pm while the others at 6pm wouldnt they just count the 1pm game??
---- I don't think so, I believe it's a daily thing so the time doesn't factor into the equation, I was curious about that last which was the 1st year I played roto but I got credit for all the stats.
As for your first question, you're absolutely right, the first year I played a H2H league and expected "utility knife" players to be fairly valuable, aka Ty Wigginton, but with the 162 game limit I soon realized it was stupid to stick Wigginton into the 1b or 3b slot when Atkins or Berkman had the day off since I was wasting a game on a guy who was statistically less likely to give me a favorable result.
