Using the Grid: To sort, click the column header. Clicking once will sort in descending order. Click twice for ascending order. The Name field does not support sorting. To filter, type within the text box underneath the column headers. For text, it looks for any match (so ‘John’ under name would include Johnny Cueto and Chris Johnson). For numbers, you can use greater than and less than signs as well (so >1 in Runs would filter to only players with at least 1 Point Share in Runs). You can use multiple filters at the same time.

Methodology – Our $ methodology is based on our Point Shares (PS) – a SGP variant where we create a universe of rostered players based on the position constraints and value the difference per stat of the player vs the ‘average rostered player’. These differences are then divided by the modeled amount that represents a standing point in that format (e.g., 7 HRs, 15 RBIs). These Point Shares are then added up and divided into fixed dollar distributions for Hitters (67%), starting pitchers (usually around 23%) and relievers (usually around 9%). The sum of the category dollars + $1 equal the players total dollar estimate. $/Game represents a player’s value when he starts a game.

Roster: For ‘ESPN Roster’, this is C/1B/2B/SS/3B/5 OF/CI/MI/UTIL/9P. For ‘Yahoo Roster’, this is C/1B/2B/SS/3B/3 OF/2 UTIL/2 SP/2 RP/4 P. For AL/NL-only leagues, this is 2C/1B/2B/SS/3B/5 OF/CI/MI/UTIL/9P.

Pos / MVPos: ‘Pos’ includes every position the player is eligible. ‘MVPos’ is the position that was used for their Point Share rankings and is the position where the player is judged most valuable. The order of most valuable to least valuable for positions is: C, SS, 2B, 3B, OF, 1B, DH. Note that the position eligibility rules for ESPN and AL/NL only formats is 20 games previous season / 10 games current season while Yahoo format is 10 games previous season / 5 games current season.

Owned%: Based on ownership within the Razzball Commenter Leagues which consists of 80+ 12-team MLB leagues using the standard ESPN roster format.

    @Rudy Gamble:

    A couple of questions if you don’t mind, sir.

    For an 8 team H2H 5×5 dynasty (forever keeper) what should I be looking at? I think the answer is 10 team (since 8 team isn’t available) and then sort by $/G, is that correct?

    Also, what is the best way to compare players for a trade if they play different positions? For example, I have been offered Joc Pederson for Jose Altuve.

    My roster is healthy with OF talent (Trout, Bryce, Mookie, Gardner and Pillar, plus I technically can use Zobrist there although I am mostly using him at SS since Ian Desmond has been a bum, and as my backup 2B behind Altuve with Rendon being on the DL most of the season.)

    This almost feels too complicated to ask via a message board, but how do I correctly weigh all of my options and use this tool to its fullest benefit?

    This league starts 3 OF and 2 Utility spots with the normal C, 1B, 2B, 3B and SS. My current roster is:

    Buster Posey
    Anthony Rizzo
    Jose Altuve
    Manny Machado
    Ian Desmond
    Mike Trout
    Bryce Harper
    Mookie Betts
    Jose Abreu
    Brett Gardner
    Ben Zobrist
    Kevin Pillar
    Carlos Santana
    Anthony Rendon (DL)
    Byron Buxton (DL)

    Here are my pitchers just for S’s and G’s, in case you see something I should change anywhere:

    Carlos Carrasco
    Jake Arrieta
    Jose Fernandez
    David Price
    Noah Syndergaard
    Anibal Sanchez
    Alex Wood
    Jesse Chavez
    Craig Kimbrel
    Drew Storen
    Andrew Miller
    David Robertson
    Steven Matz (DL)

    As you see I have 3 DL players at the moment, but the league only has 2 DL slots, so I am floating one of the guys because they are just too valuable to drop. I won the league last season and I am currently in first place, with a 5 game lead. I want to win now, but I also don’t want to jeopardize my future.

    I feel like MI is my weakest spot and that Altuve is easily my best player of that bunch, especially with Rendon being out so much this season. I’ve been trying hard to trade Desmond, but have had no luck whatsoever. I am pretty meh on Zobrist, but SS is so shallow even in this small 8 team league. Now I kind of feel like I may have answered my own question haha.

    Thanks for all the hard work you and the other guys put in. This site helped me win my league last year and has me in great shape to make a run at winning it back to back. I have the season subscription to the Hitterton and Streamonator and use them both religiously.

    My apologies for this post being so long, I kind of got on a roll and couldn’t stop. Any and all tips, strategies and advice would be greatly appreciated.


    • @Chadaristic: 10 team MLB is the closest thing to 8 team we’ve got. I look at total $ and $/G. Total $ factors in playing time expectations which could be important.

      I’m not worried about your MI. Altuve is rock solid. Desmond and Zobrist are fine as SS and Zobrist provides good depth at other positions. Nothing jumps out as a ‘must do’ move but clearly Pillar and Chavez are players that could be chopped if a better player is available. For H2H, I do like Chavez for home starts though. I could see dumping Pillar for another SP to maximize matchups.

        @Rudy Gamble:

        Thank you, sir. So it sounds like it would be wise to pass on the Altuve/Joc deal then, eh?

        • yes, their $/G aren’t even close (Altuve much better)
