Pricing Players

Postby rw_26 » Mon Feb 06, 2006 5:16 pm

I'm having a little trouble pricing my players for my auction league. What is the best way to go about this? In most of the magazines they price players, but isn't this contingent on how many hitters/pitchers each league has? I realize that most traditional leagues use $260 cap and 23 players. My league is using the same, but we have a deeper bench and less active players. How do you factor in the bench players?

Also, does anyone have experience using one of those player ratings calculators? 2 of the categories you have to enter are # of pitchers and # of hitters. Again, how do I factor in the bench players? Do I just enter the active players and omit the bench players?

Here is what I am referring to with the calculator: ... type=rater

I appreciate any advice or comments. Please go into as much detail as you wish.

RotoSpin has a feature where you can enter the # of players at each position. For your situation, I would consider the bench players as just DH or P. You can mess around with the distribution however you like.

With the RotoSpin calculator and the rototimes calculator, you will be getting values based on the projected stat line. This is not an Auction value. Auction values tend to skew high on the high end and low on the low end.
