It is called "ZiPS" have any of you heard of it?

Is it a trust-worthy Projection, as is is "hogwash" ?
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I've heard about if from quite a few people. Most take it totally to heart and others couldn't care less about them.

As is any set of projections...the are projections. ;-D

you are talking about projections from:
http://www.baseballprimer.com/to/

and to be honest I think they are pretty low on their estimates. As with any projections though you need to look at them AFTER you have done yours so you can compare and adjust. Not the other way around or you values might be skewed.
