QS is probably better than W, but also more common, so while there is overlap, it's a decent add.
I also like straight innings. Innings eaters have some positive value. If it's a weekly format, and/or there are transactions limits, innings should work well. Since you have both WHIP and ERA, you'll be punished for using crappy pitchers by bad percentages, but you still have more incentive to replace an ace who gets hurt.
The goal of a pitcher is to get outs, and innings are just outs times 3!

It would be kinda weird to say, "You should try to pitch as many innings as possible, but I'm going to cap you at 1250, and every team that gets there will tie for first". And if you remove that setting and make IP a category, you are implicitly allowing/encouraging streaming, which is something lots of people don't like.
