Looking for Help w/ 12 team H2H 5x5 Weekly Rosters.

Postby kswiss » Thu Mar 22, 2012 4:56 pm

Hello,

I'm drafting for a 12 Team 5x5 H2H league with weekly roster changes instead of daily. This would be my first league with weekly changes and I was wondering if anyone had some good advice for drafting a team? I am particularly with pitching. I really haven't figured out a good plan for how to set up my pitching staff. Should I stock up on stud pitchers to try and carry strikeouts and wins, stock up on closers to carry saves, or focus mainly on batting and draft value at pitching in later rounds?

The league starts C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF, OF, Util, Util // SP, SP, RP, RP, P, P, P, P

Thanks for your help.

That last one. Early rounds draft the best player available. That includes a pitcher if what ever pitcher is the best player still on the board. But I would try to load up on hitters and look for pitchers a little later. Don't completely ignore them but pitching is very deep so there is plenty to get later in the draft. I usually like to get one "stud" and then I look for a lot of guys with upside or solid veterans who you can pretty much count on what they will give you.
