No, my team is made up of guys who are consistant and are able to produce consistant numbers on a weekly basis, which is the time-frame within which we work. Seven times out of ten (or so) that beats people who have flashy numbers but are less consistant. So far it takes my guys about five days to pile up the same stats that most of the other teams in the league are putting up in seven. (at least in enough categories to win, anyways).
That being said, Pujols and A-Roid are bonuses. I dont usually have to worry about them as long as they keep being average or above. I'm talking about players like Scutaro and Abreu. They are the real core of my team and when they don't perform, I am in trouble.
I hope this little chat will make you a better fantasy baseball player. That being said, I kind of doubt you are willing to put in the man hours to familiarize yourself with things like mechanics (for pitchers) and plate discipline and approach (for hitters) that I feel gives me that little bit of extra information that raw data doesn't give. Plus I just like watching baseball.
