Fantasy basketball - going old school, who's interested in help?




Ok so I have a couple days to kill.  Here is what this post is about- I used to be a big time fantasy basketball player and wrote freelance for Sportsline back in the day.  Anyway, the reason was because I invented this scheduling/scoring tool-chart I used which really enhanced a team's overall performance by taking advantage of players who had more games per week.  This will not work in a league where weekly averages are used- which kinda tells you how advantageous it can be.  Essentially, the tool takes advantage of a small sample size.  If team schedules were spread over, say, a 10 year period, it would be reasonable to expect the number of 4 game weeks to be about the same.  When the time period is only one season there is a great discrepancy in the number of 4 game weeks.  So this is great for points in roto, in head-2-head where weekly averages are not in the scoring mix and to make trades/pick ups or drafting.  Since most drafts are already completed the last category may be of little use.

 

If I could post a screenshot of an older pic of the chart I would but the images on this board can only be from hosted sites/url's.  My old pic is in pdf format and it would just be for getting an idea what it looks like.  

 

Anyway, things have changed a bit since I used this last- mainly that there are 30 teams now as opposed to 29 when I used this last. That could figure into the sample size discrepancy.  But if anyone is interested in me putting this thing together and then kinda breaking it down just let me know.  Maybe if it goes over well we could post it here in kinda a perma link for NBA fantasy?  I am game and bored so now's the time to ask.
