I don't mind playing the hot hand at times, but I mostly stick with my big guns. Yes, I'm currently starting Brian f'ing Giles right now, through his huge slump.
Anyway, I'm curious what y'all out there do. Especially the owners with slumping stars, like Giles, Delgado, A-Rod, etc. In H2H leagues, I know the hot hand is usually the hand to play. However, I don't really like missing out on ANY of my studs' stats in roto leagues.

This is an interesting statistical study that basically says that hot and cold streaks are nothing more than random chance. I'm not convinced that its definitive by any means, but there is a good point to take away. The point is that its impossible to predict when hot and cold streaks will stop and start and I think in the long run you're much better off playing studs over hot players.

In my outfield, I drafted Brian Giles, Ken Griffey Jr. and Austin Kearns to start.
I have Jermaine Dye and Moises Alou on my bench.
About a little over a week ago, I decided to sit Giles and Kearns for Dye and Alou. My team has been on fire ever since.
As soon as Giles and Kearns get hot, I'll throw them back in.
Ride the hot hand but don't overdo it. Know when to get your studs back in there.
