FTBOTR is For The Back Of The Room, that’s who this post is for. Our 2009 fantasy baseball projections have been posted. These 2009 fantasy baseball projections are not quite like every other site’s fantasy projections. Ours come in the form of Point Shares. This is a very basic system to understand, this is our Player Rater. Let’s look at David Wright, who comes in first on the 10-team 2009 projections list. David Wright will give you 5.49 Points in your ten team league over the average third baseman. So if you have Kevin Youkilis (.05 Point Shares) at 3rd and you trade him for David Wright, you’ve essentially gained a bit more than 5 points in the standings. That’s not too hard to understand, right?
These specific 2009 fantasy baseball projections use Marcel’s stat projections from the site TangoTiger.net. Rudy uses these projections because they are free. He will also be putting together 2009 projections for Point Shares using a few other free services. Then he will do one cumulative Point Shares spreadsheet using all the projections systems. If you run a site and would like Rudy to use your projections, I’m sure there’s some way we can work this out. Finally, a bit of good news for those in auction leagues. Rudy added dollar amounts to the Point Shares spreadsheet, so go check it out. For those who want projections in the form of stats and not Point Shares, I will personally be going over every single worthwhile player in my annual top twenty posts in January and giving you some of my own 2009 fantasy baseball projections. Stay tuned for those. In the meantime, have a great holiday and hopefully whereever you are the Heat Miser and the Snow Miser are on speaking terms.
