I'm in a 10 team league, where the scoring for pitchers is based off of K, W, Save, ERA, WHIP, and Pitcher Team Win.
We are only allowed to have 12 starts total for the week of play, and until last week I haven't really had to worry about coming near that. What's the best way to decide who should start, and who shouldn't through out the week as to make sure that I get the best 12 starts. So far, I've just put in which ever pitcher is probable for that day, regardless of matchup, and let it ride. Its got me in 2nd place in my division, and 4th overall in the league. But after last week, I realized I needed to be more careful about who I start. Again this week, I will hit that 12/12 starts mark, but I didn't pay much attention to match ups as I did quality of pitchers. What's the best way to tackle this type of situation?
Thanks for any advice, I really appreciate all the help, including the advice I've recieved thus far!
