Oh... and one note... I don't know if you took this into account last time, but I figured I'd bring it to your attention for this year if you're planning on doing it again.
Rather than take the average totals from the winners
to calculate how much you need to win the league, it might be more realistic if you take the average totals from the 2nd place
finishers and go one point better in each stat.
For instance, last year you had 120 SB down as the winning threshold, but I sincerely doubt that was what was really needed to win in most leagues. In most leagues the winner of some categories (like SB) are head-and-shoulders above everybody else. It might be more accurate to say that the average second-place finisher had 105 SB, so in order to win you need to get to 106, not all the way to 120.
I'm sure I don't need to tell you, but FBB is usually ruled by dominance in many categories, and by the slimmest of margins in others. It does me no good to try and keep up with those who are completely dominating their league, when all I have to do is beat the second place guy.
Anyway... a small note about an otherwise great article. Thank you very much for linking me to this... exactly what I was looking for.
