I know that in many of the roto circles, folks talk about aiming for 3rd in every category and so forth.
One question that puzzles me and that I have been working on trying to solve is trying to create a baseline (for lack of a better word) which would allow me to break each category into units.
For example, we know that 12 inches = 1 foot and so forth. What I would like to do is get an equal unit breakdown for each of the five categories so that I would be able to ascertain how much a SB or any other category is worth in my league.
That's what I did to prepare for my draft. I'm in a 5X5 NL only league. I used as many realistic projections I could find and averaged them. Then I used a 100 point spread for each category to give each player a point value. I totalled these and came up with an overall value for each player. This is what I will use on draft day to make my selections.
For example, if each stolen base were worth 2.5 homeruns, then I know that a guy who puts up 20 SBs and 0 HRs is equal to the guy who puts up 50 HRs and 0 SBs (all else being equal).
Am I making any sense?
Is this possible to do?

Good idea and I'm sure if you use past stats you can get an idea, but it would be impossible to nail due to so many variables.
Good example is steals. Pretty rare commodity for quite a few years, and then all of a sudden last year there were plenty availiable on the wire. Tough to predict exactly, but you can probably get a ballpark figure. Good luck.
