Daily, Weekly, and Rest of Season Projections

Posted on: April 2, 2010 3:26 pm
I know it's been a while since I've updated the blog.  A lot has been going on that will make the site better that you all should start to see over the course of the next few months.  But in the meantime, we're adding a really cool feature for the start of Baseball season that we're hoping will add to your roster management experience.  We've partnered with AccuScore to bring you in-season projections for all of your Fantasy Baseball players.  In the past we've given you our own pre-season projections for every player.  And these are very useful in making decisions around drafting and pre-season pickups. But as the season wears on, we all know that things change.  So looking a pre-season projections becomes pretty useless after a point. 

AccuScore has a unique system, explained in detail here , but basically they simulate every play from every game 10,000 times to determine the best probability of what will happen.  Through this method, they will be feeding us daily, weekly, and "rest of season" projections for every player.  So, on your sortable stats pages, you'll now find selections for the projections for the upcoming day, scoring period, and a players projections for the rest of the season (or from that day on).  Also, on the player pages, you'll now see projected points for a player on the Fantasy Trend component for Head to Head leagues, and projected stats for a player in Roto leagues.  You'll also notice a 'Next 7' as an additional lineup view on your Set Lineup pages. 

So, as always, your feedback is welcome and encouraged.  It is the only way we'll know if this is useful for you and how we can make it even better.  We're excited about bringing you this additional data and hope it helps.

Daily, Weekly, and Rest of Season Projections

I know this isn't the place for this question, but when will Brandon Beachy get added to the player pool?  Bryce Harper was added the night he signed.  Beachy is long overdue.  Others, too, I'm sure.

Was Average Draft Position removed recently?

I suddenly can't seem to find it, and it is a feature that I use regularly as kind of a
gauge to how players compared at the start of the season.  Can I get some insight?

Hey Mike

Can you guys please change the posting schedule for the "Weekly Planner" page, found under the STATs drop-down?  Currently, on Mondays, the Weekly Planner cycles to the next week.   Mondays, before the roster deadlines for the current upcoming week.  So, for example, it's May 3rd today, roster deadlines aren't until 7 PM tonight, but the Weekly Planner has already moved on to the week of May 10 - May 16.   If the updated Weekly Planner sheet could wait until Tuesday to be posted, I think that would be very helpful. 

Another option would be to allow the users to go back to the previous weeks Weekly Planner.  Right now, I don't believe that's an option, unless I missed something.  

I like the tool.  I think it's a nice, clean, simple presentation and because of that, it's a big help in decisionmaking.

Haven't really gotten used to the Next 7 data yet.  It definitely sounds good in theory, but I think that so much of the data being in
decimal format makes it a little difficult to compare and comprehend quickly.  Don't really have a suggestion for a better way to show it though, as obviously most players don't project for more than 1 HR, 1 SB, or 1 W a week, for example.

What I DON'T like though is that the 'Next 7' took the place of the 'Projections' link.  I used that all the time!  It was a quick and easy way to see the season projections for all my players, or another team's players without having to click on each individual player page, or setting up a Compare Players or Trade to see season projections.  Any chance you could bring that back?
