Finishing ahead of them one year means nothing. I finished second-to-last in my money league this past year, because it was a head-to-head league and I got unlucky draws, while outscoring my opponents by a wider margin than anybody else in the league.Valman wrote:Amen Dark Knight!! I played in a league with two so-called pro's. Writers and stat predictors. I finished ahead (3rd), in a 15 team league, of both. Luck, injuries and waiver wire is part of the process. Don't care who you are or how much time you spend on projections.

I got tired of doing all this work because projections are just opinions of a players future performance, based on his past performances, and every year half the good players from the past year bomb big time the following year due to poor performance or injury. I have been playing fantasy baseball, football, and basketball, for over 10 years now, so I am familiar enough with the players names and stat numbers to have a great draft without having to bring pages and pages full of my hopefull projections to the draft with me, and it saves me a lot of written guess work as well.
