Non-power hitters get pushed down because they won't hit a grand slam. In the long run, none of those stats will matter. They might gain you 4-5 wins over a long season.

I think the real brilliance of it is that it's a 6 team league, so while the other 5 teams are loading up on hitting, you get all the best pitching while still getting to draft the 5th-7th best hitter at any position. In H2H this could pay off really well if you also get lucky with a few bats. It would also be nice to get pitchers like Lincecum, Scherzer and Moore for the bench as your 6th thru 8th starters, and you could play them when they get hot/have good matchups.

I would suggest to concentrate on guys who give good ratios and ignore wins, think about guys who go deep into their starts as having bonus value over those that K 10 per 9. You should aim to win ERA/WHIP/SV and the W/K and others will fall into place.
