Scoring

What is the NBA Standard Scoring?

Points = 1

Rebounds = 1.2

Assists = 1.5

Steals = 3

Blocks = 3

Turnovers = -1

 

Can you explain the custom scoring for NFL?

TDO - Refers to the Scoring-Only System, where players get fantasy points only when they reach the end zone. Yardage is meaningless.

PPR - Same as Standard FP Scoring, but adds a point per reception. This scoring system rewards pass-catching Running Backs and Receivers that can pile up the catches as well as yards.

FP - Refers to the Basic Fantasy Point scoring system.

Why does the custom scoring differ from the rankings?

Expert rankings may include things like injury risks, potential to grow, reliability, trade prospects, ease of replacement in other categories, and whatever other factors and biases may affect their outlook on a player.

Calculated rankings, on the other hand, tell you mathematically how much a player will contribute to your team assuming that every player in the league gets exactly the stats they are projected for, without taking any other factors into consideration.

The main point is that editorial and custom rankings are two related, yet independent methods for evaluating a player’s value, and it’s up to the users to decide how much stock they want to place in each method.

 

Can you explain the custom scoring for MLB?

If your league is a head to head league and awards specific values for each category (Ex. 4 points for homeruns, 10 points for a win), then you would select fantasy scoring. Select the categories and enter the values.

If your league is a head-to-head league and you win if you win more categories, then you would select rotisserie style scoring and select the categories your league uses.

If your league is a standard rotisserie league (a rotisserie league is a league in which teams are ranked in the production of the league's scoring categories. In a 12-team league, a team that comes in first in any of the categories earns 12 points, while the team that comes in second gets 11 points, the third place team 10, etc. ), you would select rotisserie style scoring and select the categories your league uses.

This is how the custom auction values are determined:

You will need to enter a salary to get values for the players if you select rotisserie scoring. If your league does not use salaries, you still need to enter one. It doesn't really matter what the salary is so long as the number is big enough to allow for a wide variety of dollar values, but in general, using 12 * (number of total players per team) should work well, and about a 65/35 hitter/pitcher ratio.

This is how the values work:

The dollar values vary with league setups. Ex. If your setup is for 10 teams, and each team has 25 players with a salary cap of $260, the total league salary is $2,600. This amount is divided among the number of players in your league which is 250. This means that only 250 players will be ranked. If you want more players to be ranked, then you would increase the player roster.

MLB Auction Values:

We set the values based on 12-team leagues, and people in leagues of different sizes value players differently. Also, position scarcity plays in. If you are talking about an outfielder, since there are many outfielders available, this would be a factor.

The value shown in the 4$ column is the value for a 4x4 scoring league and the value shown in the 5$ column is the value shown for a 5x5 scoring league. 4x4 uses Batting Average, Home Runs, RBIs and Stolen Bases for hitters and Wins, Saves, ERA and WHIP for pitchers. 5x5 uses Batting Average, Home Runs, RBIs, Stolen Bases and Runs for hitters and Wins, Saves, ERA, WHIP and Strikeouts for pitchers.

 

What are the Player Rater numbers, and how are they calculated?

The Player Rater numbers are based on standard deviations in statistical production above or below replacement players in the specified categories. The default uses full season projections, but it can also use recent actual production values. It’s a 0-sum formula, and the way it works is by setting a player at the mean in each category to 0, with players below the mean negative and above the mean positive.

It’s straightforward for basic stats like HR, SB, etc.  However, averaged stats such as batting average are a bit different, since you don’t want a rookie who’s gone 1/1 in his only at bat to be valued 3 times as high as a player show has gone 93/274. Another way to think about it is that a player who went 1-for-3 has the same batting average as a player who’s gone 100-for-300. However, although the batting averages are the same, the 100-for-300 has contributed to his team (both actual as well as fantasy) 100 times as much as the player who goes 1-for-3. So, while the batting averages are equivalent, the numbers behind them are vastly different, and the player rater scores reflect that. It uses your custom scoring as far as what categories to display.

 

Can you explain the projections, rankings and tiers?

Projections -  Based on the stats the writers believe the players will get for the season.

Rankings -  Made at the expert’s discretion; they may include factors beyond the raw numbers, such as reliability and injury-proneness, team dynamics, opinions of a different expert, etc.  They’re completely different ways of viewing the players, and this is exactly what we want, as there wouldn’t really be any point in having the experts rank the players if they would always be exactly the same as the calculated versions anyway.

Tiers -  Players grouped per position based on how our editors feel the players should be considered. They group players that are similar together. The purpose is to highlight the major drop-offs in value at each position.
