Ten Hitters Worth More in Rotohog

The following ten players should benefit from some of the categories that are included in Rotohog's point scoring system, but not in traditional fantasy baseball leagues. I came up with the list by looking at the 5 hitting categories that Rotohog includes that a traditional 5X5 Rotisserie Scoring League doesn't consider in any way: doubles, triples, walks, strikeouts, and caught stealing. I used 2007 ZIPS projections (available from The Baseball Think Factory) and weighted them based on their value in Rotohog. These were the top ten:

1. Todd Helton
2. Albert Pujols
3. Grady Sizemore
4. Jimmy Rollins
5. Nick Johnson
6. Mike Lowell
7. Garrett Atkins
8. Luis Gonzalez
9. David Ortiz
10. Jose Reyes

While you can question my choice of ZIPS projections, and some of these guys would fare well no matter what scoring system is used, names like Johnson, Lowell, and Atkins may be worth moving higher on your draft lists, since the Rotohog scoring system appears to be favorable to them!
