Bless you, Todd. In the original draft of my post I wrote that "we'd need someone handy with a spreadsheet and impartial to do it," but that description fit you so perfectly that I deleted it because I didn't want to put you on the spot. That is really awesome that you volunteered. :)

Thanks Brian, but you know how this works.

Wouldn't it be neat to take the halfway point data for all the Main Event leagues and generate second half data for them to see in general and compare? Game theory is the next area to help gamers advance their play and this tool can maybe provide a little bit of info in that area.

I think anyway.

So what is a nice favor to you guys is also a tool for me to aid in some research :)

Guys,

When does the second half contest start? Was it this past week or after the ASB?

Hey Brian

Sorry guys I've been totally consumed by the LeBron saga the last few days -as a Cleveland fan it's been rough.

We could start it after All Star game unless everyone thinks it should start this week (the actual fantasy midpoint). I'm fine either way - but admit to not getting it all together. I'm sure Todd could help me get started based on this weeks stats if we want. What do you guys want to do?

Logistically, you should start at the beginning of a scoring week. I'm not sure if you think giving everyone enough notice to "plan" via free agency is necessary.

I'll grab the stats after tomorrow's games in case you guys decide to start it right after the ASB.

You may want to wait a week, giving everyone ample notice -- not my call obviously :)

Thanks Todd - I think after the All-Star break is the best place to start - so let's go with that.

Best let everyone know so they can ramp up using tomorrow's free agent period.
