Playing with the numbers: Revisiting PGP
I can smell what's going to happen in my fantasy league. I have the best pitching staff going. I'm currently in first place, and I might be OK. A number of my pitchers were abused in July (Matt Morris, Daisuke Matsuzaka, Joe Blanton, Oliver Perez, Chris Young), but the effects of this overpitching appear to be wearing off, and I might be able to sustain success if these guys don't get abused too much more.
Please pay careful attention to the data I present here. If you have the flexibility to demote overused pitchers and replace them with solid options, you could seriously blow away the competition. In my league, it's hard to do that because almost everyone with a pulse is on someone's roster.
