There are three things I look for in my fantasy baseball projections – cheap, early, and accurate.
So I’m excited to announce that we now have 2013 fantasy baseball projections available on Razzball for free – courtesy of Steamer projections – before both the groundhog and other projection systems have popped their heads above ground. Steamer moved up their number crunching a couple weeks from last year and we helped by providing playing time estimates (up to and including the Justin Upton trade).
As for accuracy, Steamer projections – created in 2008 and maintained and operated by Jared Cross, Dash Davidson, and Peter Rosenbloom – tested as one of the best (if not the best) in my review of 2012 baseball projection systems.
We will update these projections periodically throughout Feb/March as MLB depth charts stabilize and Scott Boras finds a hefty contract for his last overpriced client. The projections can be accessed via the ‘Stats’ menu or by clicking the below links. (Note: Grey’s projections will be available in the same menu very soon.)
In addition, the first release of our $ Values + Point Shares are available. They cover 5×5 leagues with 10, 12, and 15 teams using the ESPN and Yahoo roster formats (AL/NL-only $ values will be available later in February) These leverage the Steamer projections as well as CAIRO projections which performed well in the aforementioned 2012 projections test. These can be accessed via the ‘Player Rater’ menu or by clicking the below links and will be updated periodically throughout Feb/March.
