From this article (and how I think you should evaluate keepers also):

I'd break it down as something like 75 percent the player's 2009 projection, 25 percent the player's prospects for 2010 and beyond


Good luck soty. ;-D

That philosophy is pretty sound, but those rankings are pretty rough.

I think a pretty good rule of thumb is looking at average draft position with some tweaking for youth. You need to be careful to not reach too far for a guy who you could redraft.

And once you figure out some candidates, create a post in the Keepers forum here at the Cafe. You'll typically get some great advice there. ;-D

I didn't even look at those rankings. Now that I have they are pretty poor I would agree. The advice though (75/25) still holds true IMO.
