Comparing Fantasy Docs and Rotochamp - A few players

Postby The_Idiot » Tue Feb 15, 2005 1:45 pm

In comparing Fantasy Docs rankings and Rotochamps I noticed some large discrpencies in the following players:

Aaron Rowand - RC 16 Docs 103
Dave Roberts - RC54 Docs125
Justin Morneau - RC63 Docs127
David Wright - RC 57 Docs 119

Mariano Rivera - RC 128 Docs 57
Trevor Hoffman - RC207 Docs 133
Jorge Posado - RC206 Docs 115
Francisco Cordero - RC197 Docs 101
Juan Encarnacion - RC587 Docs 129

Anyone have an insight on the disparity in rankings? Thanks.

yeah i do.... I think what rotochamps did was this: They found a few guys who they thought would expload this year and have abnormal numbers. So they adjusted for it. The other site was way more conservative i would imagine.

Rotochamps appears to be viewing the youthful, up and coming stars as more preferable than older veterans players. Docs appears to endorse the older, more established players.

I have no Idea to how you use Docs but just ranking the players to a standard 12 team 5x5 league I would go with...

Mariano Rivera - RC 128 Docs 57
Justin Morneau - RC63 Docs127
Francisco Cordero - RC197 Docs 101
David Wright - RC 57 Docs 119
Jorge Posado - RC206 Docs 115
Aaron Rowand - RC 16 Docs 103
Trevor Hoffman - RC207 Docs 133
Dave Roberts - RC54 Docs125
Juan Encarnacion - RC587 Docs 129

Are these players ranked by position or are these numbers their overall rank as hitters/pitchers at all positions?

I will go with this, but I have to temper my excitement on the young guys. A few years ago I got real excited about some "young studs". I just knew they were going to bust out. Let's just say I was serching the waiver wire for lots of replacements. That said, I really like Morneau this year (but Rivera is the man. I mean, come on his is the missle mask or some crap like that in the new nike commercial.)

Mariano Rivera - RC 128 Docs 57
Justin Morneau - RC63 Docs127
Aaron Rowand - RC 16 Docs 103
Francisco Cordero - RC197 Docs 101
Jorge Posado - RC206 Docs 115
Trevor Hoffman - RC207 Docs 133
David Wright - RC 57 Docs 119
Juan Encarnacion - RC587 Docs 129
Dave Roberts - RC54 Docs125
