Figuring out projected dollar values for a custom league

Postby Frappy » Mon Feb 21, 2011 7:28 pm

Hey cafe,

So I've started with my preparation for my first auction-style draft, and I've run into a bit of trouble. I've been customizing a projections spreadsheet to get rankings tailored to our settings, but I don't know how to even start applying dollar values to this list. Example: Pujols is projected to rake in 650 something points. I have no idea, however, how to value that in terms of auction dollars. It seems like there are too many variables to make this possible. I need to consider our custom cap ($370), whatever our rosters must look like, and how our scoring system may be different than others (though points, ultimately, serve as some sort of definitive value).

So should I even worry about attempting to figure out dollar values here? It would be to my advantage to know what type of points-per-dollar I could get come draft day.

Is there some kind of master calculator out there that considers these many variables? Is there some sort of formula I could use in Excel? Any help is greatly appreciated as I've never dealt with this type of draft before. Thanks!

Ohh, I noticed Elijah's post on this matter. Seems like a pretty good starting point to multiply your starting positions by total teams. This weird cap is a monkey-wrench however.

Nevermind! It's a salary cap, not an auction. :-/
