Update 3/15: Added one last source: Marcels. Also added a column showing AL/NL, and removed any players that didn't show up on at least 3 lists.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... TJ2M3ctRnc
Update 2/25: Added one more source (Steamer) and also completed the ZIPS projections. 10 sources now. I've removed any player who wasn't on at least three lists to prevent weird projections from getting on the list. There may be some duplicates on third tier players, but the 400-600 players should all be unique. I likely won't be importing any new sources, but may do some more small cleanup. And thanks again to those who are donating. It's made me compelled to make more edits and improvements.
Update (2/17): Added 3 new sources (ESPN, CBS, Davenport), also tweaked the "value metric" a bit to make it more accurate to recent stats, and included both a "5x5" and "OPS" value for those in different types of leagues. I still wouldn't use the "value" as a be-all; end all, but it's better than sorting just by name or AB/IP
updated link (2/6): Here's the link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc ... TJ2M3ctRnc
Update: 1/31. Made some cleanup edits cleaning up some pitchers that were missing, and also added the paypal link for those willing: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c ... ostedGuest
The concept is to aggregate/average out a bunch of projection systems to come up with a a new projection. This is based off the "Wisdom
of the Crowds
" mentality where predictions of wide range of lay people are typically more accurate than any single prediction of experts. Fangraphs has been doing a lot more of this the last year, (see today's post on Yu Darvish: http://www.fangraphs.com/fantasy/index. ... 5x5-stats/
), and I think that eventually Fangraphs will eventually have this as part of their site, but they don't right now, so I will do it.
Currently, I only have 4 inputs, but as projections come out from CBS, Yahoo, ESPN, etc, these will be a bit more refined. Very early stage, but I figured I would post them anyways. I have only included those people with at least 2 sources of input. As I get more inputs, I will increase the minimum. If you have links to any other freely available projections, please let me know.And if anyone is feeling generous: here's a paypal link: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?c ... ostedGuest
edit: note, the "value" is based on OPS leagues, and I wouldn't really pay much more than "directional" attention to it, and I especially don't recommend using it to compare hitters to pitchers - it's overstates the value of pitchers (and steals) a bit is my assumption, but I just haven't spent much time trying to fix it.
