I'm trying something new this year that I got out of the Fantasy Baseball Blackbook. It's called relative position value. It involves a players 3 yr fantasy points avg and the 3 yr fantasy points avg of all the (relevant) players at his position.
(Player avg-position avg)/position avg
Does anyone else use this or something similar? If so, how much weight should I give this number? If I get first pick, I'm guessing I should take Cabrera even if there is a 2B or catcher with a higher RPV. In other words, how much should I look at position scarcity?
Finally, what are your methods/processes for ranking players? It's a lengthy question I know... Any thoughts?
