I'm sitting here at work procrastinating, so I decided that I'd use whatever spreadsheet I could find that would make some projections on final standings for this league. I found something on Razzball called the War Room which uses their rankings to project standings.

It looks like they haven't updated the projections in like a month, so some of the injuries and changed roles are not factored in. I also just used everyone's starting rosters for this (except if one of your players was not in the sheet, so I went to the next player). So with some people having different mixtures of SP or RP in their P slots, the pitching side isn't that comparable. Plus, I know that anything that has me finishing anything close to 1st has to be WAY off.

I'm assuming the order in the top table is how it expects us to finish?

If you're really "procrastinating" and want to do it again, try www.drafttracker.net as well! It has projections based on multiple sources.

I went team by team from the Rosters thread so it is in that order. It doesn't automatically re-order them, so it's just in the order that I entered them.

The 2nd to last column is total points and last column is team rank (albeit team rank is backward - the higher the number the better).

Maybe I'll work on another one when I have time, but I can't procrastinate ALL day. ;-7

Again, some issues with some picks left to be made, and also some players who are not in their spreadsheet. Some similarities with the results. B-)

Madsen goes down for the year with TJ. ;-)

I see where the issue lies. :-b I forgot to make your trade with Aqua. I'll update it and see where it ends up.

Edit: Makes quite a bit of difference. You drop down to only 4 points in R, but you climb up to 10 in HR and 8 in SV. It now has you at 67. It also drops Aqua down a bit, but that's also because his roster now has one less player.

I also just realized that it gave Oopah 0's for two categories. It projects him to be the worst in both categories, so it doesn't change the standings, but everyone should get 2 extra points on their total.

The first one listed me as the 5th worst team, the 2nd one as the 2nd best team. That goes to show just how wide a margin of results you can get with projections :). I like the 2nd one though I fear the 1st one might be correct! As for my actual feelings for my team I think the 2nd one is closer because me being almost last in SB and R makes no sense, if I have a weakness it is HR for sure.
