This is part of an annual multi-part series designed to help Fantasy Baseball fans determine on what fantasy rankings and projections to rely. The first part will cover Rankings. The next parts will cover Projections.
Below are the ranking sources that are part of the test. I have hyperlinked to the actual rankings wherever possible. Some of these links, including ours, will override once 2014 rankings are published. Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is part of a two-part series designed to help Fantasy Baseball fans determine on what fantasy rankings and projections to rely. The first part will cover Rankings. The second part will cover Projections. The methodology for the test relies on comparing Razzball Commenter League team drafts (576 teams in 2012 across 48 12-Team MLB leagues using ESPN’s default 5×5 format) and their end of season point totals. Background on the methodology can be found here. Please, blog, may I have some more?
While we at Razzball are content toiling within the modest confines of fantasy baseball blogdom, we occasionally like to flex our journalistic muscles and take on a challenging interview.
Our interview subject is Matthew Berry - the Director of Fantasy Sports at ESPN. His career has taken him from stand-up comedy to Hollywood where he paid his dues with writing gigs like Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles which was up for a 2001 Razzie (unaffiliated to Razzball) as Worst Remake or Sequel but lost to Planet of the Apes. He followed his passion of fantasy baseball and wrote for Rotoworld before starting his own fantasy blog TalentedMrRoto.com that was purchased by ESPN in 2007. Please, blog, may I have some more?
