Rotisserie Goals

Postby Mike_nyc » Mon Feb 09, 2009 12:47 am

Has anyone come across any recent articles on benchmark stat totals necessary in standard (23 man roster) rotisserie leagues? How many homeruns or approximate era to sit atop the average league.

I came across some dated material, but am interested to see how that has changed given the hr and sb trends.

Take a look at rotoauthority series, what it takes to win.

That's not as easy an answer as you may think. You can have 500 hr's but have a low BA and sb total and be sunk. The answer also depends on the number of teams in your league. I would say for a general idea about 350 hr's is pretty solid for 13 hitters.

Juhlz I think the question was referring to what it takes to come in 1st in each stat category in average leagues. Not necessarily what you have to have to win your league, but what you can shoot for to be at or near the top in each category.

If you played in previous years you should be able to pull up the info. I've been doing this for my keeper league for years.

Correct. I've been playing h2h solely the last couple of years but am now getting back into roto. Rotoauthority was a decent starting point

I do the same. I pretty much take an average of 3rd place in each category over the previous 3 seasons. That is my benchmark or goal. Since each league is unique, this is the best way to do it.

In my roto league with 14 batters 290 HRs won it in 2007 and 310 in 2008.

I also keep track of my previous years stats for the same league. Then i use a weighted average to get an approximation on what i should aim for this year.

ok, well let me take a stab at some average numbers of what my roto league categories have looked like to take 1st in each:
BA: .295
Hr's 310
rbi 1150
runs 1150
sb's 185

era 3.20
k's 1300
w's 120
saves 120
whip 1.12

...something like this for 5x5, 13 batters and 9 pitching slots
