I don't normally do this, but i joined a 12-team H2H league (re-draft). typical 5x5 scoring with BB and Holds added in.

With Head 2 Head i normally punt batting average, and so i went ahead and did the same with this league. I focused on SP a little earlier than normal and then had Reynolds/Dunn targeted b/c of their high BB totals.

C: JP Arencibia
1B: Adam Dunn
2B: Rickie Weeks
3B: Mark Reynolds
SS: Danny Espinosa
LF: Bryce Harper
CF: Desmond Jennings
RF: Giancarlo Stanton
UTIL: Jay Bruce

BN: Andrelton Simmons
BN: Kevin Youkilis
BN: Starling Marte
BN: Juan Pierre

SP: Cole Hamels
SP: Gio Gonzalez
RP: Rafael Soriano
RP: Sergio Romo
P: Kenley Jansen
P: Vinnie Pestano
P: David Hernandez

BN: Matt Moore
BN: CJ Wilson
BN: Marco Estrada
BN: Matt Harrison


There's so much power up and down my line-up, it is hard for me to imagine losing HR/RBI very often at all. i think SB might be a weak spot for me at times. I think my pitching is well-balanced though.

BA will hurt you in exchange for the HRs and RBIs.  Between Dunn, Reynolds, and JP, and Espinoza, they will be lucky to hit a combined .220.  And you need to get on base to score runs.  Look for some contact hitters with a good EYE in FA.  I would put in Simmons for Espinoza right now.

Yeah, with BB as a scoring category i targeted Dunn (100+ BB) and Reynolds (75ish BB) specifically. I think Reynolds is going to bounce back this year in the power department.

.220 is fine for me as long as i get the HR's and RBI's that come with it.

And my plan is to platoon Simmons and Espinosa. Let Espinosa sit against tough pitching match-ups

Yeah...I can see you're not worried about the BA.  I have Dunn on my team and have for years now, so obviously I like him.  I think you end up going with Youk in your line up rather than Reynolds, he goes through some vast stretches of goose eggs and KO's.  It gets painful to watch good stats sit on your beach while waiting for his 4-6 days volcanic island of power, followed by another ocean of crap.
Nice outfield.  Hope you didn't reach for Weeks.
 
Overall, pretty good solid team.
