LOL.... The idea had actually crossed my mind before, but I do not have the time, nor the inclination, to worry with such an undertaking... I'm perfectly content to share my ideas with the cafe faithful free of charge....
I really don't know how to express to you how grateful I am for your work. I used your analysis last year and it really helped me alot. Defense is such a tough position because of so many variables that this tool gives a real advantage.
Having said that, last night I was actually thinking one thing you could add to your reporting if you have the time and inclination. I know that your total score consists of the offense and defense added together (although now it has some modifiers). It would be great if in the thread discussing the formula results you could also show just the raw scores for offense and defense seperately. That way it would help us know which defenses are the most consistent at the repeatable scoring scenarios (sacks, points allowed, int's). It also allows us to see which offenses are worst at those things.
Right now I use your formula to decide who to start and if there is someone on waivers that has a good matchup. BUT, by having seperate columns for offense and defense scores I could actually go beyond just picking up a defense off waivers, and may look to invest in a trade for defenses that put up good points and have a lot of games against week offenses. This could yield a huge advantage. Knowing the scores I may be able to get a defense cheap because the owner isn't familiar with the strength of schedule as it pertains to fantasy defense in repeatable scoring scenarios that your formula tracks.
