We run an 11-team mixed keeper roto auction league with weekly rosters.
Our current categories are: Runs, HR, RBI, SB, BA, OPS, K's, Wins, Saves, ERA, WHIP.

Our starting roster settings are: 2xC,2x1B,2x2B,2xSS,2x3B,UT,5OF, 3SP,2RP,4P + 10 reserve slots

Hitting still seems to win the day in our league and most of the auction dollars are spent there. (16:9 starting slots and 1 extra roto-category)

I'm wondering if we need to add a roto category to the pitching side to help increase the value of pitchers.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I lobbied for QS instead of wins, but nobody wanted to make that change.

Would adding something like IP help? or would a rate category like K/9 be better?

You should have even cats for hitting and pitching.

Adding IP would just make people grab all 2 start pitchers more then they already do in weekly leagues. On the other hand adding k/9 would not change the way people draft since everyone already goes for the high K guys since you use strikeouts for pitchers. I also hate quality starts since 6 IP and 3 er's is a quality start yet a bad pitching day. If you can adjust what a quality start is in your league to something like 7 IP and 2 runs or less then I like it. Maybe use a cat like W/L. Or just losses by themselves. This stops the streamers just using two start guys like crazy. I use that in a few of my weekly leagues.

Streaming isn't a big issue in our league since all FAAB moves are subject to our salary cap system.

We have $300 to auction our starting rosters + 10 x $1 reserves and each FAAB player picked up incurs a $1 charge against our salary cap.

We have a provision to that allows teams to go into salary cap debt (up to a hard cap of $330) with a corresponding penalty the following year - ie. if you ran up $312 of salary cap charges in 2013 b/c you picked up 15x$1 guys through FAAB, you will only have $288 for the 2014 auction and faab salaries.
