Seems to be an ongoing argument here but just to chime in... been doing H2H for years and have had a lot of succuess. I have never punted a category bc it makes no sense to give up on any category when it's completely possible to win them all if you know what your doing. My strategy has always been to draft a nice balanced team... 20/20 and 30/30 guys are always high on my list as far as hitters go... never been a fan of guys who offer nothing but HR or SB's, but 1 or 2 on your roster doesn't hurt. But agree w/point above... of all cats to even think about punting, Avg is not the 1... consistent hitters are much more likely to help u on a week to week basis. Pitching I usually don't draft early bc it's soo deep and there are always surprises and let downs along the way, but if you can nail down 1 stud in the first 5 and add a couple solid proven starters by the middle of the draft, your usually in great shape.
