Churning pitchers is a favorite tool of weaker fantasy players. Using a cap forces them to try to be selective and make good decisions.
Actually "pitch and ditch" is used by some of the best fantasy players in tout wars. It's a very good and successful strategy if used correctly. Looking at matchups and being able to predict good starts by "bad" pitchers based on who they face, batter matchups, ballpark, etc. But if someone just picks up anyone at random hoping for more wins, then they will likely hurt themselves in ERA and WHIP. By limiting the supply of pitchers by capping starts, wouldn't that making teams be less
selective because they have less options?
