Any fantasy baseball enthusiasts here? I have two drafts this weekend. One is a redraft league and one is a dynasty league. The redraft league seems to have a major flaw in the rules that I intend to exploit. I'd like opinions on my exploitation strategy.
The redraft league has daily roster spots for 2 SP 3 P and 2 RP. The thing about starters is they start once or twice a week. If I daily fill my roster with 3 starting pitchers who aren't even pitching then they're a waste of space. However, if I have 5 closers I have a good chance of having some activity from those 3 P spots on a daily basis.
The other piece of information is there is no cap on starts or innings on a weekly basis. Rosters can be changed daily and matchups are determined not by categories, but rather by points. My goal, without streaming pitchers, is to get as many innings pitched on a weekly basis as I can. So much so that I intend to draft nothing but pitchers for the first 10 or 11 rounds.
In my dynasty league we had a setup just like this in the first year it ran. The person with all the closers dominated. The next year there were spots for 5 SP and 2 RP. The following 3 years the person who found the closer who was eligible as a SP did very well. Last year Aroldis Chapman was eligible as a closer and as a starter. In addition to Chapman I had Kimbrel and Rivera as closers. I had ~50 saves more than the next guy in the league and ended up 17-1 in the regular season. I'm wondering if any of you know of any dual eligibility closers at this point this year.
