I wouldn't do this if I were you. Points leagues are pretty awful at least for what I prefer in my fantasy.
To me standard leagues are still best. As much as people talk about better representing real baseball I think the best part of fantasy baseball is juggling the various stats. You want a league set up so the maximum number of players are useful and you are constantly trying to juggle the different stats to find the perfect balance. That is why for example I don't like OBP or SLG replacing AVG. You end up with a smaller useful player field since you streamline the game towards power hitters who tend to have a higher OBP and SLG and away from the speedier types who tend to hit for a higher AVG.
If you dislike SV I would suggest you move towards SV+Hold. It makes the field of useful RP much much larger and makes bad RP who happen to be closers mostly worthless like they should be.
Since you control the point system, you can set it up in a way to maximize the usefulness of different types of players. Also, by allotting a preferential ratio of points to saves/holds, it helps with the RP quandry above. Also, you can allot points for innings pitched (or outs made), subtract them for things like H, ER, HRA and BB, and do a good job of de-emphasizing wins/quality starts -- while they still account for a few points each, the most important thing is going deep into games and not giving up a lot of negative plays.
The best thing about points leagues is that they're not a cookie-cutter as H2H/Roto leagues with the same cookie-cutter stats. You can come up with a points system that better reflects the value of each player, which is what it sounds like the OP is looking for.
