Head-to-head leagues: ever wonder your roto performance?

Postby ellenajekalb » Thu Aug 09, 2012 1:43 pm

I created a website called *Mod edit -PM if you want the info* where you can see your leagues rotisserie standings. That is, assuming you're using a Yahoo h2h league. No pressure to sign up -- but all you need to provide is an email address, and all your h2h leagues (current and past) will be loaded automatically.

I don't really stand to gain anything from this site at this point, but I figured I'd share a useful tool with the community.

Blake-
seems interesting, but nobody is going to submit their Yahoo info to someone with 7 posts.
anyway to verify that your site is legit?

Well, actually, you don't submit your Yahoo info to my site. Here's how it works:

Option 1: Enter your league information on the homepage (league ID, sport, year). You will be taken to the Yahoo site itself, at which point you enter username/pass. My site is then authorized to read from your Yahoo leagues, which is how the standings are calculated.

Option 2: Create a separate account on my site, go through the same Yahoo authorization process, and have all your leagues loaded automatically.

It works using the Yahoo Fantasy Sports API, which was created for websites like mine. At no point do I ever collect personal information, which is indicated on the Yahoo authorization page.

If you still feel insecure, then I'm not pushing anyone to use it. Like I said, I don't stand to gain anything. I created this for personal use (computer nerd + fantasy nerd), but figured I could expand it to a wider audience.

And if this helps, here's a screenshot of my past h2h basketball league with my leaguemates' team names blurred.

you can get the data yourself by clicking on head to head stats and then totals. Paste into excel and its easy from there.

Yes, you can. That's what I used to do. It's tedious. There are a few advantages to using the website:

-The head-to-head stats that you mentioned only get updated once a week. Rotocalculator.com updates live.
-Rotocalculator.com shows rotisserie totals for position types (pitching vs. batting) as well as overall totals.
-Rotocalculator.com allows you to view roto totals for past leagues as well as current (head-to-stats are disabled once the league is archived).
-Rotocalculator.com allows you to view roto totals for season-to-date, any given week (including current), as well as the current day.
-It's free, and much simpler.

I guess I'm just trying to get a user base so that I can get some feedback and possibly expand the site to include some new tools.

And I wish you good luck in getting that user base ;-D

...just know that coming to a site and your only contribution to said site is, "hey, come check out my site"...you may not get much feedback.


Welcome to the cafe! ;-D

I went to your site. Thank you! I have for years been pulling head to head stats into excel and measuring it that way...yours saves serious time especially if checking multiple sites. I
