To do it or advise it is simply incompetent fantasy baseball managing.
That is just silliness. I've seen it happen first hand. One guy in my 10 team H2H league went an entire season without a C on his roster. He made it to the finals but lost. We changed the rule in this league that you must carry all starting positions.
Why change the rules? He was hurting no one but himself. He made the finals because he had a decent team, not because he didn't start a catcher.
Honestly, in a 10 team league, yes I agree that he was absolutely hurting himself. However, he was hoarding all the closers and other members were pissed off by this.
I think it could make sense in a larger league. Using my 20 team example, regardless of what Towles did, I would still hold the lead in R, HR, RBI while gaining 3 pts in AVG .270 vs. .264.
