Been thinking about this and wondering about properly using the CVRC tool to create my cheat sheets. The problem is that when you review the values they don't make match up to what I would consider a realistic draft sheet. Let me start by saying that I agree with the projections being used ( we all have opinions that players might outperform a projection but I like the across the board baseline they create ) So if I agree with the projections why if I run the tool does it not create a cheat sheet I can use with little to no manipulation on my part? I'll give an example I ran the CVRC on the default 15 team 2 pool setting. When I look at OF I see the following ranks/$$ figures
21 Pierre, Juan $19 .283 1 44 88 46
22 Bruce, Jay $18 .258 31 95 88 8
23 Hamilton, Josh $18 .274 27 94 80 7
26 Pagan, Angel $17 .277 8 61 88 31
30 Heyward, Jason $17 .260 25 75 86 17
So out of the following players the most valuable is Pierre at $19? Am I miss using the tool or looking at it the wrong way? If I agree with the projections how is it that Pierre is worth $2 more than Heyward? Part of why I'm asking this is that I'm trying to eliminate name bias out of my player ranks and valuation. Too often I feel like I over value a player based on who they are and not soley based on the counting stats they will bring to my team.
As Todd says you need to discount the steals a tad which moves Pierre and Pagan below the three good hitters.
I also think Hamilton should get an adjustment up AND if your first few picks give you any BA ballast that you would move Bruce and Heyward up a little.
