Do you know in March if you'll be in the top or bottom cluster in October?

This is a GREAT post that I stumbled on 7 years after the fact and it's still very useful. I do want to throw in one wrinkle: How does this change with keeper values?

Do the $ amounts the same, just add a category for age, and if two players are similar, go for the younger player

You're thinking of the problem of draft inflation. A Google search will help you but here are some quick links.

Step 1: You run the values of all hitters/pitchers as if there are no keepers. Say the sum is $1000.

Step 2: For those players who are keepers, exchange their values in Step 1 for their keeper values. Your total sum of all players in Step 2 is now, say $900.

Step 3: For those players who are not keepers, you now need to evenly inflate the players who are not keepers a certain percentage, which will be HIGHER than ($1000/$900) because you are not inflating the keepers. You will have to play with that percentage so that total value of all players (keepers and non-keepers) equal $1000.

Has anyone come up with the baseline numbers for this season yet? I went through and did mine roughly but they seem off and I was wondering if anyone had done it and I could compare.

When I do it I get a range then go deeper and look at the data then choose the number that best fits. The one that jumps out to me is the 100-110 RBI baseline for 1B but every time I look at the data it makes sense.

Is that looking at the top 12 per position? How does it deal with multi-position players? And CI/MI/Util spots? Separating the cutoff by position for each stat seems like it's doing more harm than good to creating player values and is putting way too much emphasis on positional value.

Its top 12 based on position. Our league doesnt include MI CI spots so I didnt. For the Util i just do best remaining available players. Multi position players I handle differently. Its not the way that most people probably do but its how I always did it in the past. What I do it is I use players at their most valuable spot. If they have multiple valuable spots like Zobrist I include him in both 2B and SS but not OF. Someone like Carlos Santana or Joe Mauer I dont include in the first base calculations.
