Haha...jerk :-b .


Yeah, I play in a sim league and a league that tries to mimic actual player value (don't have a good defensive method yet). So I'm not trying to decode Roto 5x5.

nothing but love ...

if you really want to test your projections, you need to test them against former years.

pull out the 2002, 2003, and 2004 years and project them to see how close you are to 2005.

I would still bet that Marcels comes closest ..

Player ranking/evaluation formulas are science, player projection formulas are witchcraft.

Just use VORP. You'll account for only offensive aspects and won't be bogged down with position scarcity or anything like that.

Yeah, I like VORP. I just like creating my own stuff too. I'm graduating college next week, so I'll have a lot more time to fool around with this stuff soon.

Thanks for sharing your work greenandgold. I'll look over it in detail soon.
