It's interesting to see all of the different strategies.

I think it's relatively easy to see in hindsight, which doesn't help you here. But I think you'll find that you often draft similar players in your leagues... Check your season-long ranks in average and slugging. If you tend to rank higher in Average, go with Big Disadvantage. If higher in Slugging, go with Big Advantage.

That said, I've found average to be expensive in drafts and slugging to be cheap. And no matter how much a league values dW, it's undervalued.

My teams always end up pretty high in D plays and SLG/OPS and pretty low in AVE. So I want Big Boost everywhere. Home run or bust on offense with good defense. Try to win 3-1.

Lots of good players disagree, though!
