Point Shares – The methodology behind our Fantasy Baseball Player Rater is known as Point Shares. The estimated difference in a team’s points if they were to substitute a given player for the average player at his position. Two players can be compared against each other – e.g., substituting Cliff Lee for Zack Greinke would mean an average of 6.64 points (6.40 for Cliff Lee, -0.24 for Greinke).
