FYI, I'm going to hold off for another week before updating MDPs in hopes that Yahoo, ESPN, and/or CBS post their ADPs. Expect some big changes... ;-D

Edit: Just noticed Yahoo has ADPs. Interesting...

What is the total number of players that you will use? 300?

I'll eventually go up to 350 or 400. The latest version I have actually goes up to 300 but I don't trust the numbers near the end.

Right that is what I figured since at the end there is a lot more variances.

I'm not sure how to interpret this. I don't think it means what I thought it meant, and I'm not sure it was discussed.

B.J. Ryan RP

MDP 124.00
Low 122.87
High 126.9
SD 2.08

What is this telling us? At first I thought it was the draft range based on standard deviation, but this seems too narrow a range.

Right now, I have 3 ADP sources for Ryan.

The median of the 3 = 124.00
The low of the 3 = 122.87
The high of the 3 = 126.9
The sd of the 3 = 2.08

Essentially, what it is saying that all 3 ADP sources are consistent in indicating B.J. Ryan's average draft position (123-127).

Thanks. Just added him to Tier C.

Note: Tiers were last updated early January so things have shifted. I will be updating them shortly.
