Converting Mixed $$ to NL- or AL-Only

Postby NCAARules » Fri Feb 04, 2011 4:12 pm

Does anyone have a solid method for converting mixed league auction values to AL- or NL-only leagues? I'm thinking there should be a ratio or a methodology to correct for the size of the player pool and for positional scarcity - i'm just not sure how to go about it.

Anyone have a suggestion or proven method?

I'm not looking for these values to be an end-all, be-all. Rather, just one very small piece of my pre-auction pie.

You really can't apply any sort of formula to the translation. Certain players at the very top will go for as much as 3 times what they would in a mixed league. Others will go for around double. Some of the players who would have been about 15 dollars in mixed leagues might go for 40 in NL Only. Some who you might have stolen for a buck will go for 7 in NL only. I think you pretty much have to start from scratch and look at a totally new set of tiers and dropoffs to decide where those differences are.

It's not possible to do a simple conversion and get meaningful numbers. You have to calculate from scratch.
