Cheat Sheet

Postby jruiss01 » Wed Oct 04, 2006 2:16 pm

I have been playing Fantasy baseball for about four years now. Last year I think it finally clicked. I had a good team and finished up 5th in my league which has 12 teams. Before this year I consistently showed up at the bottom.

This year I am preparing a cheat sheet with the last three years for each pos. and the avg between the three years. I want to know if I am headed in the right direction.

Comments on what I can do with my cheat sheet aslo.


Thanks.

That's a good start. If you want to take it one step farther, you can always take things into account like trends, age, things of that nature to project what each player might do next year. Some players are obviously on their way up, while others on their way down. You've also got to consider injuries and things of that nature. Anyway, there are reasons that just a three-year average may not tell the whole story.

Good luck. ;-D

This is good advice, but in reality, unless you're in a league with super knoledgable, competetive guys, using a three year avg. is probably going to give you a major advantage over the average owner.

If your in a league with a lot of new people, simply having a list of rankings for each position to refer to during the draft will give you a huge advantage.

If you play with the same people from year to year save a copy of the draft results. Maybe you'll identify trends that managers have during a draft. Might help you safely pass or jump on certain people. I do this in my leagues and definitely doesn't hurt to give it a try.
