I will add one amendment:
DO NOT NEGLECT BATTING AVERAGE. As you do all you said above, pay super duper attention to batting average. Don't *just* go for the 40HR guy, grab the 30HR .310AVG guy instead.
If you're playing ROTO, then yes
If you're playing H2H..absolutely not...in fact, make a conscious effort to ignore batting average and you'll have an awesome lineup that should win a majority of offensive cats and maybe sweep on a fluke average week
Way to volatile of a category from week to week to put too much weight on in H2H
I agree. In H2H leagues you don't have to worry about BA.
I still wouldn't completely ignore BA in a H2H league, but I would place less importance on it. If you draft several low BA guys (ex. Reynolds, Uggla, Pena) one of these guys going on a streak won't do you any good. The impact is still there, so I wouldn't go crazy drafting low avg guys. It's annoying to start each week at -1 in average.
