Rest of Season Fantasy Baseball Player Rater – 12 Team MLB (ESPN non 5×5)

Updated: | Maintained by

To calculate hitter dollars for your league, add up all the categories used in your league, multiply by 5/(Categories in League), and then add 1. To convert to 10 team, multiply the sum of $ by 0.95 and subtract 1.33. To convert to 14 team, multiply the sum by 0.9 and add 2.75. To convert to 15 team, multiply the sum by 0.85 and add 3.88. Click headers to sort.  Use text boxes to filter results and < or > to filter data (e.g., <30).  View multiple names/data with | and wildcard with * (e.g., *Ruth*|*Aaron*).  See more in footnotes.

$ Methodology/FAQs/Definitions:  The foundation behind these player values is our Point Share methodology.  WTF is a Point Share you ask?  It represents the estimated difference in an average team’s points if they were to substitute a given player for the average drafted player at his position (same in concept as Alex Patton’s Standings Gain Points).  So if a player has a 1.0 for Runs, he would, on average, increase a team’s standing points in Runs by 1 point.  Thus, a completely average player is worth zero Point Shares.  These Point Shares are converted to dollars at the total player level as well as for each category.  The sum of a player’s category $ plus $1 (for replacement level) equals their total auction $ value.  Converting Point Shares into $ is covered in the FAQs that I had put together as part of the Historical Player Rater.

Filtering Results:  You can filter multiple fields at the same time.  The text fields below the column headers enable several methods for filtering the data.  Here are some examples:

Function Symbol Example Explanation
ANY MATCH ‘B’ in Pos Typing B in Pos will filter to any player with 1B, 2B, or 3B eligibility.  Type in more details to filter further – e.g., “1B’, “1B, 3B”, etc.
OR | Ruth|Aaron in ‘Name’ All players with Ruth or Aaron in their name
NOT ! !FM in ‘Halls’ All players who are not in both the Hall of Fame and the Hall of Merit
NOR ! | !F|M in ‘Halls’ All players who are not in the Hall of Fame NOR the Hall of Merit.  Just use the ! once.
GREATER THAN > >30 in $ All players whose $ is greater than 30
LESS THAN < <30 in $ All players whose $ is less than 30
GREATER THAN OR EQUAL TO >= >=30 in $ All players whose $ is greater than or equal to 30
LESS THAN OR EQUAL TO <= <=30 in $ All players whose $ is less than or equal to 30

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.

Steamer Projections – Created in 2008 and maintained and operated by Jared Cross, Dash Davidson, and Peter Rosenbloom and widely respected as one of the best MLB player projections systems available. Steamer provides rate stats (e.g., HR/PA) and Rudy Gamble of Razzball projects full-season projections based his playing time estimates as well as Runs, RBI, Saves, Holds, and Quality Starts.

Hitter/Pitcher Split In Auction Values  – $ values are based on a 67/33 hitting/pitching split to better mirror draft behavior. 15-team Standard format is set to 63.5/36.5 to reflect NFBC draft behavior.

Position Eligibility – 20 Games in last season for ESPN and ‘2 Catcher’ formats.   5 Games for Yahoo.

ESPN Roster Format – C/1B/2B/SS/3B/CI/MI/5 OF/UTIL/9 P.

Yahoo! Roster Format – C/1B/2B/SS/3B/3 OF/2 UTIL/2 SP/2 RP/4 P.
