Yeah, I don't like that strategy either, but this year I'm trying one in which I actually punt steals and batting average.
It's the first team on my signature. I had Kershaw as a keeper and focused on grabbing top relievers to anchor my team (reached for Chapman and Jansen on rounds 4 and 5). As for the hitting, focused on high HR guys, some of which can be picked really late or even from the wire.
Working fine so far as I'm currently 1st with 18-6, where I had a fluky first week in which I actually won SB and AVG, but lost in saves (7 to 8) and wins. Ended 10-2.
My second week went 8-4, in which I lost AVG and OPS (another fluky SB win, but OPS loss I also consider fluky). And lost QS and K/9 this time, 'cause I tried streaming some SPs to get QS and W, and ended up lowering my K/9 in the process, starting Koehler and Richard.
It was a CSB, but the bottom line is that, in this strategy, drafting the top closers was one of the most important things to do for me to have a strong foundation in 4 of the 6 pitching stats, not just saves.
