The player ratings assigned to each player is how the system evaluates their worth compared to others. Their value DOES NOT equate to the points they are expected to average each week. These are two separate things. However, you can check out their fantasy stats and player news by clicking on their names.
There are three lines in the graph. The blue line shows the best performance for a player in the same position each day. The black line shows what the average points a player gets with the same position. Use those two lines as a guide to decide how well the player in question is performing. Ultimately you want the green line to be above the black line as much as possible. Also its important to note that the most recent games are read from left to right. So 1 would be his most recent game.
At times you may notice that the player performs better than the maximum that should be allowed. This is of course impossible. The reason is because he is being compared against the position he plays most often and NOT the position he plays that particular day.
Dozens of things are taken into account to formulate a player rating. I can't give away the secret sauce, but the player ratings are based on raw numbers, player expectations, with a little bit of fantasy scoring considerations. If you would like me to add support for other point systems then please contact me.
A trade is considered fair when the two sides have a similar score. The "winning" side does not neccessarily matter when it comes to a fair trade. If the trade is 1-1, then ideally you'd like to see the numbers within 5 points of each other. If it is a six player trade, then the numbers could range from 5 to 12 points and still be considered fair. Note: The trade analyzer cannot figure out player ratings for injured players (yet).
Also, if someone decides to create a 3 to 1 trade (3 crappy players, for one good player) you will notice that the numbers appear to be fair. Obviously this would be a terrible trade, so please use best judgement.
Absolutely! Every morning the stats from the previous day are added. For football, stats are added every Tuesday AM.
Absolutely. I made sure to include a direct link to each trade. What would a trade analyzer be if you couldn't show the results to friends?!
Contact me as soon as possible so we can work something out.
The trade analyzer is constantly being updated behind the scenes. The engine that powers the trade analyzer also powers the team analyzer and fantasy assistant.
