### Do any of you use this method of player valuation ....??

I need some help trying to determine the gap for my 5x5 categories due to lost standings from last year. If anyone still has theirs can you please let me know the gap between the winner of the league and the loser of the league in all the cats. For instance how many homers seperated the #1 ranked roto team in that Cat from the last place. I am seeing that an average of 70 or so it the norm but I need to see more before I set up my valuations on the players for my league.

I would be greatlful if you can take the time to do this for me anyone

### PERFECT

THIS IS PERFECT. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM LOOKING FOR.

IF YOU PREPARE YOUR DRAFT USING THE VALUATION METHOD BY DETERMINING HOW MANY HOMERUNS IT WILL TAKE TO MOVE UP 1 POINT IN THE HOMERUN CAT. YOu can the translate this over to the hitters projections and determine a rough idea of the players worth.

There is much too this than what I have time for, however I can give you a small part of how it works.

A-Rod for example based on projections of:
47HR 118RB 20SB 0.298 124runs

By dividing the gap of homers by teams you get a unit per point.
for instance in your league it take 10 homers to gain 1 point in the homers cat. So by just having A-rod on your team all year he would give you 4.7 points higher in the homer cat than not having him. Like I said before there are many more factors, however this is a simple way of explaining it to you. Let me break downyour units first.

It takes 10 homers to gain 1 point in the HR cat.
It takes .0017 to increase 1 point in the AVG ct.(harder to predict)
It take 21 Rbi to gain 1 point in your runs cat.
It takes 22 runs to gain 1 point in the rbi cat.
It takes 12 sb to gain 1 point in the sb cat

Now lets see what A-Rod is really worth:

HR is worth 4.7 points
AVG cant be determined because its the team average. Cumulative is tougher to use.
RBI is worth 5.6
Runs is worth 5.6
SB is 1.6

If you add this up then A-ROD is valued at 17.5 roto points in your league. The key is to do this for all your players to get a ranking. Once you get a ranking you can see how a player helps or hurts you team if he is plugged in. They can also have negative points per cat. Take a guy like Pierre who hits no homers. He may have a negative point total. So if you have a spreadsheet you can determine th league average and base it on this.

### oops i forgot

If you league had large gaps between the winner and 2nd place and the last place team with the 2nd last then you can throw out the two end teams and use that as a gap to base off of.

Unfortunately, I don't have my stats from last year, but I'd be interested in seeing your ratings based on this method.

These numbers seem pretty extreme for a 14-team lead. Are you telling me that the top team in HR's averaged more than 38 HR's for every single hitter? And the top SB team averaged over 25 SB's per player. For runs and RBI's they'd have to have averaged 142.

Probably had some extra positions in there...MI, maybe an extra Of'er or two, or extra util positions, I would guess (?)

EugeneStyles:

There are a couple of other steps that take place after you have these figures. These steps then convert your players with a dollar figure. It is amazing to see how everyone is so fooled by the experts when they figure out a \$\$ in the books. If you want to know more I advise purchasing

the ADAPTIVE VALUATION does all of this for you. Its very simple and worth every penny.

Here are my top 5 rankings for each position given my league numbers.

*Vlad was ranked lower because I lowered his projections due to concerns with health.
