Since I started playing in H2H leagues last June I have gone 23-1, with the one loss coming my first week before I used the strategy that bleach mentioned of sacrificing pitching to build a great offense and then loading up on spot starters to assure victory in W and K every week. This strategy is almost unbeatable unless your opponent uses it too. In H2H leagues it is absolutely critical to play matchups and have a few roster spots you can use to rotate in spot starters, fill empty starting spots on offense on Mondays and Thursdays and bench slumping sluggers for hot FA bats.
It's also important at the beginning of every week to form a strategy based on your opponent's strengths and weaknesses. I always map out who his starters are facing vs. the teams my starters are facing. And then on the weekend, especially Sunday, you have to check all your cats to know which ones are won/lost and which ones are still up in the air. Like say it's Sunday night and you have Jason Giambi left and your opponent has no one. If you have already won HR, RBI, have no chance at SB or R and are 3 points ahead in BA, you've got to bench Giambi.

Lofunzo wrote:I respectfully disagree with some of what you said. IMHO, roto is about the best team over the course of the season and H2H is about the best for that week. Saying that H2H isn't about luck is wrong, IMHO. You can dominate the whole year but if you get bad luck, 1 week can kill your season. 1 or 2 injuries or bad starts and your season could be over. That's luck
