Good Points League Fantasy Source

Postby MrBaseball76 » Sat Feb 12, 2005 4:02 pm

Does anyone out there know of a good source for points league players? It seems like everything is geared towards 5x5 leagues.

We use CBS sportsline for our private points league...they let you customize it any way you want. We been very happy with their service and the site...but they are expensive!

I'm selfish. I'll be keeping my projections site to myself.

Okay, okay... Baseball Notebook isn't too bad.

If it's an auction, you'll have to figure out your own method for dollar values (I'll briefly describe that at the end), but if it's a draft, just grab the projections from a site like RotoTimes and put them into Excel format. You can use simple formulas to calculate total points for each player. Give an overall ranking for each player. Tally up the average points for each position, or figure out average rank, and divide normal rank by the average points/rank... sort by that number, and rank again.

If it's an auction, do this: Figure out the best $1 player at each position. Figure out how many pts/game (or whatever your scoring period is) the guy is likely to score. Say it's 1/game. The top guy gets you (random number, here) 6/game. So, the top guy is worth 5 pts/game. Figure out those point values for all the players worth more than $1. Divide the total amount of money the league has to spend by the points-above-minimum total, and that's how much each point is worth. So, if that point is worth, say, $5, then your 5/game guy is worth $30.

Simple, but it works.

I'd like to note that my position-scarcity system in the previous post is oversimplified. You'll have to make adjustments, or you'll find some odd things going on. In fantasy football this past year, such a system resulted in Tony Gonzalez being the most valuable player in the NFL, by far.

You might want to do something like average the base rankings with the positionally-adjusted rankings. (Though, in football, that still resulted in Gonzalez being over-ranked. He was a bit of an anomaly, though.)

Toward the bottom of the sheets, you'll notice some huge changes. On my sheets from last year, Rocco Baldelli dropped over 50 spots due to position scarcity; probably not particularly accurate.

I agree CBS Sportsline's private site is good. Is there anything else out there?
