Is there anything free that lets me put in a player or entire team and get there point value based on league settings? I don't want to pay anything for just that one feature. And I don't want all the other stuff that comes with these fancy "draft-kits". I just want to be able to compare players or teams actual value based on my leagues specific settings. Anyone know of anything like that?

I've seen websites that allow you to enter your league parameters and spit out values that way, and that is a nice baseline, but if you have keepers you are left to figure out inflation/deflation on your own, and the auction is also fluid, if a player goes for $5 above or under their value, the $$ has to be reallocated somewhere, and software packages help you figure it out. Well worth the money, especially if you play in multiple leagues.

Much more user friendly and easier to navigate. More accurate projections (use baseball forecasters numbers). They have a free demo, try them out. This will be the 4th year in a row I use them.


Many would argue against the claim that BF's projections are more accurate than Fantistics'.
