Re: 2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

I added a few more inputs (Zips, Steamer), so now I have 10 and won't be doing anymore.

And yes, you can download the spreadsheet from google doc if you go under file ---> download as

Re: 2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

fantasy pros now has some consensus projections, not just rankings.

http://www.fantasypros.com/

But they're still not including anything from Razzball! What gives?
Awesome. I'm glad that someone else is doing it. This has been a pretty time consuming project for me each year.

Re: 2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

Making the ability to remove certain projections would require far too much work than I'm willing to put in. And I don't really see why everyone hates ESPN projections so much. The same could be said for Bill James overly bullish projections, but I would include them in here if I had them - as the m...

Re: 2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

edited to include CBS, ESPN, and Davenport projections (now up to 9 sources). And also included the 5x5 "value" metric.

Still need to update ZIPS once Dan gets around to doing the Pirate projections.

Re: 2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

Not that hard. Just running an average & standard dev calculation vs. batting average instead of OPS.

Next time I post an update (once the full ZIPS projections come out), I'll add a column for "5x5 value"

Re: 2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

this website does all of that work for you http://www.fantasypros.com/mlb/rankings/overall.php Grey, why aren't they including your rankings? I like that it lets you select which of their experts you use in the composite. That's an awesome site, but it does rankings, not projections. What I did was...

2012 projections - Wisdom of the crowds

I have been doing this for a few years, figured I would post it in case anyone finds it valuable. Essentially, the premise is that no one "expert" projections will be as valuable as if it you aggregate and average the projections from multiple "expert" sources. So I downloaded a bunch of free projec...

Re: Which 10

Yes, Broxton in the 19th has significant value, while Howard has no value being kept in the 1st round, and actually probably negative value since I would rank him 8th out of the list you gave.

His peripherals have steadily gone down every year.
