anybody know the average roto scores to win (overall and by category) from last year and/or historical?

I remember reading something from espn last year which was kind of nice during drafts to ballpark strength/weakness in cats.

I've seen it change dramatically from league to league. Just depends on how active and astute the other owners are.

How many teams is also a big factor in the equation. ;-)

78% of the total points usually wins, or puts you real close.

Sounds like a good estimate to me for competitive leagues. Any reason for the exact figure? (HOOTIE always has good reasons. :-) )

In sharks & minnows leagues, on the other hand, you might have to aim for the high 80s, or even more...

Thanks. I was hoping for a by category breakdown. Let's 12 team 5x5 league winners averaged:
.300 BA 170 sb 1250 rbi 1100 runs 270 hr (just an estimated guess from one of my leagues.
Also want:
whip, era. k, sv, w


my league is set as below but guestimates are fine.
1b 2b 3b ss ci mi 5of utl sp sp rp rp 5p

Everything plays into it but I'll give you the top 3 category finishers from my league:

10 team 6x6 mixed (40 Man Rosters)
start 1 each (C/1B/2B/3B/SS) 3OF & 2U
start 5 SP 2RP 1P (1000 IP min - 1500 IP max)

RUN: 1088/1033/984
RBI: 1075/972/955
HR: 305/267/264
SB: 156/140/135
AVG: 297/289/288
OPS: 875/871/863

WIN: 100/98/96
LOSS: 63/72/72
SV: 118/113/111
K: 1310/1256/1221
ERA: 3.27/3.34/3.40
WHIP: 1.18/1.20/1.20

The top 3 finishers scored 92/88.5/86 (of 120 possible) or 76.7%/73.8%/71.7%

I had a link to this kind of info about 2 years ago, but I'm not sure what I did with it. I'm at work right now, but I'm gonna check my computer at home and see if I can find it again. I checked last night and couldn't find it, but I'm interested in finding this kind of info myself, so I'll check again.
