Note: Filters and sorting in the table below apply to the output!


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.

    Do you have these projections split by pitcher handedness?

  2. hankp says:

    Will you guys be doing the Steamer/Razz ROS projections again this year?

  3. Andrew Winters says:

    How often do you update playing time projections for the rest of season projections? I see Starling Marte still projected at 119 games even though he is suspended for half the season. And you have Thames at only 90 games, which needs an update since he will presumably be an everyday player.

    • @Andrew Winters: There are some automated updates to playing time based on DL stints and playing time but, otherwise, updates are made whenever something comes to my attention. I had a hack in place for suspensions but had to go in there just now to make sure he stays out for 80 games. Good call on Thames -updated him accordingly. If you stumble upon anyone us, let me know…

  4. Keith Herrman says:

    How do you foresee Villar being a top 5 SS the rest of the way? He’s produced in the line of Addison Russell the first half.

    • @Keith Herrman: I’m more bearish on villar than the player rater. I like him as a potential 15 SB guy who could be bought on a discount.

  5. Paul Switzer says:

    Acknowledged my sign in, but no access to anything

  6. Mark Hvezda says:

    How come Kiki hernandez of the Dodgers is not in the ROS projections?

    • Mark Hvezda says:

      I see that he his listed as Enrique Hernandez.
