Determining value of players in roto

Postby JustAnotherYanksFan » Sat Feb 26, 2005 4:03 pm

Is there a way to actually compare the values of two different players in roto? Obviously, there are times when one player is clearly better than another. But when it's not as clear, how would you determine the value of a player?

Obviously, it depends on what the rest of your team is like; a player who gets 100 steals, 50 R, 5 HR and 50 RBI isn't very valuable if you're already in the top 3 in steals. But let's say you're talking about early picks, when you don't know what the rest of your team is going to look like. For example, look at Bobby Abreu vs. Manny Ramirez. If Abreu hits 110-22-105-35-.300, and Manny hits 110-42-130-0-.315, which one is more valuable? (To clarify, I'm not asking for people's projections; I'm just trying to figure out how to determine which player is better, both in this example and in general.)

There are several excellent posts that go into great detail on assigning value from statistics. If you use the search function up top you'll find em ;-D

Here's one that starts off with a quick 'in the ballbark' scheme, but some even better ones were discussed somethime in Jan 04

I just came across the one I was looking for. IMO it's one of the best explainations I've ever seen...
