Razzball now has a fantasy basketball trade analyzer! and it is free!

What makes ours worth using vs the other trade calculators out there?

  • We show the projected points AND our projected stats for the players while many fantasy basketball trade calculators just show a ‘black box’ projected point total.
  • Our quality Rest of Season projections are updated daily throughout the season.
  • Easy to use on desktop or mobile with autofill on player names and auto-calculating totals.
  • Accommodates both NBA and Yahoo fantasy point projections.

If you like it, share it! Also, check out the fantasy baseball trade analyzer, fantasy football trade analyzer, and our in-season fantasy basketball projections (free 3-day trial, starts at $5.99/month)

We call our daily projection ‘bot Stocktonator because he’s programmed to assist season-long and DFS fantasy basketball players all while wearing uncomfortably short shorts that barely conceal his ball bearings.

I’m pleased to announce that the Razzball family has a new baby bot. We’re calling him Stocktonator and he’s programmed to assist (motherf***in’ pun!) season-long and DFS fantasy basketball players all while wearing uncomfortably short shorts that only just conceal his ball bearings. (Shoutout to JB for the Stocktonator visual)

The methodology behind Stocktonator’s projections (today’s games + next 6 days + a 7 day total) is as follows:

  • Create ‘per 36 minute’ rate stats for each stat category using past performance backtested to determine proper weighting – e.g., yesterday’s game has higher weight than 80 games ago.
  • Use a Player Reference file updated hourly to determine a player’s status – e.g., Healthy, Questionable, Out, etc.
  • Model likely starters based on active players and project player minutes using previous games and starter/bench role. Adjust/redistribute player minutes so that team minutes sum up to 240 + an OT adjustment (closer games more likely to go to OT).
  • Replaced modeled starters with actual starters if the lineup has been posted. (Shoutout to malamoney for his invaluable help on this task!)
  • Adjust player rate stats based on opponent defense.
  • Adjust player/team possessions based on team’s average possessions/game and opponent possessions/game.
  • Adjust player rate stats based on deltas between Vegas projected team points and Stocktonator’s projected team points.
  • Apply rate stats to projected minutes.
  • Tiny adjustment to player points based on deltas between Stockonator’s team point projection and Vegas point projection.
