For example, if you have two players of equal OPS based on your projections one playing for the Yanks and the other playing for Arizona who do you think will be more valuable for fantasy baseball? The guy in the Yankees lineup will be more valuable but according to ranking them based on individual metrics they will have equal value.
As far as Dunn's plate discipline: the guy has a lifetime .382 OBP and averages 4.26 pitchers per plate appearance. I don't see his plate discipline increasing by any significant amount.
Isn't the whole point of fantasy baseball to see who can get the best REAL baseball players on their team? Production in real baseball = a good fantasy team. I've been winning fantasy baseball leagues for 5 years using variations of my methods.....I can see that some of you guys aren't very open to new ideas....there isn't any one right way do to this. If anyone is interested in logging into my some of my leagues, I'd be happy to let you see the results. My methods work.
