What are your thoughts as to the accuracy of fangraph's Zips(RoS)?
I plugged them into my league's scoring system, and got a couple of surprises.
Have you used these projections, and what has your experience been?
Thanks for sharing...

Have you found any projection maker that can accurately predict busts? I guarantee if you found a place that had accurate projections for what Hanley Ramirez is doing right now, it would be absolutely terrible for the other 99.9% of players. The point isn't to predict outliers, obviously.
