We play in a 12 team H2H points based league. We score points (like +1 per single, +1 per strikeout) and total them up for a final score that determines the winners. I've included our full scoring system below.

I was wondering just how different of an approach I should take when drafting or ranking my players? Which types of players should I try to draft and avoid? Should I target Hitters or Pitchers early? Its frustrating that everyone else seems to play in a more traditional Roto League or perhaps a weekly H2H roto league - and therefore the sites talk more about this strategy.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Looks like staff aces are very valuable in your league. I'd go heavy on good pitching. Also, looks like average guys (Polanco, Ichiro, etc) are more valuable in your league than in roto. So I'd try to get well rounded players and good pitchers.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Thank you Grey. Do you feel that way because of the +10 for wins? I've sort of taken your approach (that you generally talk about on this site) and have tried to acquire batters in my first 2-3 picks because they are generally "safer" and waited to take 2nd tier SP's because there is a greater risk that pitchers break down (see: Brandon Webb).

Last year I didn't draft a pitcher until round 5 (I went Pujols, Pedroia, A. Ramirez, Quentin, Dice-K, Dempster). Luckily, I got Greinke, E. Jackson, Danks in rounds 8+. I later traded for Nolasco and was pretty set at SP. I finished with the 2nd best team overall and came in 3rd in the playoffs.

I was thinking that this year I can't wait that long (the top 17 pitchers were taken through 3 rounds) this year. I was thinking of going Batters in rounds 1-2, and then alternating Pitcher/Batter in the next few rounds based on player availability. I already have Tulowitski, Nelson Cruz and I. Stewart (as keepers) so I was thinking of looking for power 1B, OF and 3B.

What do you think?

Yeah, your league's points are weighted towards good pitchers.
