Notes on the rankings:

Strikeouts/injuries - Points league rankings have an increased focus on strikeouts, as each one costs a hitter anywhere from -.5 to -1 points, and on injuries and plate appearances. Essentially, the more a hitter strikes out, the more likely he is to rank lower in a points league and a player that misses weeks at a time or in constantly in and out of the lineup is not very valuable as each week in a points league is its own mini-season. Therefore, when a player like Nelson Cruz is out of your lineup for the entire month of June, your chances of winning those weeks takes a big hit.

OBP - Also, while a lot of roto leagues have made the switch from AVG to OBP or turned to a 6x6 to incorporate the stat, it isn’t always the case in standard scoring. In a points league, a BB is just as good as a single, making hitters with a keen eye at the plate even more valuable than they might be in a traditional 5x5 roto league.
