h2h managers question

Postby FantasyJunkie787 » Tue Feb 07, 2012 5:40 am

i have been playing h2h since 06, and have had some success but still don't have a concrete idea on how its won, should i draft high avg to avoid hitting slumps and also what about pitchers?

Avoid hitters with low OBP.
I like sports with balls in them.

When you add OBP you have to pay more attention to both AVG and OBP, since they are related. You'll need to avoid the low AVG, high K guys more than most. Otherwise, the advice I've seen around here is applicable - don't draft for speed early, get power early, don't punt categories, don't draft bench bats.

Pitching is where I've found h2h to get more strategic. I don't know from your post what the 6th pitching category is, and that makes a big difference in strategy. If your league adds holds, you need to think through your RP strategy. If it adds L or QS, that matters more to your SP strategy.

Generally, drafting your bats first, high-K SP next, closers and speed last should set you up to be competitive all year.
