First Time Playing a Points League

Postby Yanks_Baby » Mon Mar 26, 2018 11:49 am

BN Tyler Chatwood
BN Alex Cobb
BN Mike Clevinger

Never done a points league before, much less one with weird point configurations like the above. What do you guys think? I sorta got screwed with Samardzija getting injured last minute. Bumgarner I knew about and stole at 130 overall. Especially for a H2H league, I feel like injuries matter a little less assuming there's a solid bounce back.

Obviously pitching is a little weak for the first month or two. Any suggestions of who to look out for? Also, am I better off running 3 closers with Saves worth as much as they are, or should I swap in Chatwood with his double eligibility, since we have no IP/Starts cap.

Also any thoughts on just forgoing a catcher altogether to stash an up and comer? The 1-2 points per game the catcher will typically net me hardly seems like it will be that big of a difference maker.

For pitching stopgap, perhaps 1 of the Braves young guns, or Jack Flaherty. In a 10 teamer, perhaps you can get by with a matchups guy every week for a while. I still prefer swapping pitchers every week looking for easier offenses each week rather than locking in on 1 guy and running him out there vs everybody. Still have to wonder how many AB's Santana is going to get the way their roster is right now
