Edit: if you don't want to read this whole thing the questions are in capsule form in the first reply.
I have several questions for those that keep their ear closer to the ground when it comes to fantasy football than I do.
In baseball the number of at bats and IP is so large and the data accumulated over the past 100 years or so is so vast that people have devised various sorts of formulas to project player stats based on various factors about the players and historical precedence for similar players. Does such a thing exist in football? or is stat projection essentially a set of completely educated guesses?
I am totally fed up with all the "ranking sites." Those are all fine and dandy if:
1) The scoring system used to make them is the same as the scoring system that you're using in your league
2) The scoring system for the ranking is actually given.
I am in several leagues that use non-basic scoring and for me stat projections are a lot more important than someone's rankings. Where do you get your stat projections? are there free sites?
Anyone have any scientific treatment of draft strategy? I have some ideas about this, but I'm wondering if anyone has done any calculations... i was mainly looking at falloffs in player production at various positions. For example, suppose you want to take a WR and RB in the next two rounds, can you quantify/estimate, for a given point system and set of projections which order will net you a larger number of points?
