Imagine finding out your crush actually liked b.o…..Nasty, but hey…everyone has their thing. If you didn’t shower for weeks and asked him/her out, would that guarantee anything? Of course not, but it would put you in a better position for success. That’s what this post will be. Another piece of information to help you solve the fantasy puzzle.

Last season, we ran 17 RCLs (Razzball Commenter Leagues) on Yahoo. These were all 12-team leagues. The year before that, there were seven leagues. We moving up in the world! Anyways, I took the winning number for each category, and for each matchup, then averaged each one. The sample size is in the thousands of weeks, so no small packages here. Hope that’s not what she said. For full disclosure, during the playoff weeks of 22-24, I only utilized the scores from the championship bracket. I did not include the data from the consolation bracket, as I assumed most of those teams weren’t setting their lineups.

Here’s the data:

FG% FT% 3PTM PTS REB AST ST BLK TO
AVG .483 .804 62.36 638.96 247.56 143.54 42.42 29.46 64.33

For those curious or just want some shits and giggles in their lives, below are the fewest and most points scored in a category per week.

FG% FT% 3PTM PTS REB AST ST BLK TO
MIN .379 .574 5 95 39 14 6 2 7
MAX .748 .929 123 1001 429 245 67 54 100

These numbers should help you maneuver the waiver wire and strategize for upcoming weeks. Hope they help!

    Thanks for the data! Just wondering how many active player slots there are in the leagues, is it the standard 10?

      Yes, 10 slots. We used Yahoo for all the RCLs the past 2 years

        Whats up son! Howvya been? Ive just a few questions!

        With regard to yahoo settings:

        1) ‘standard’ scoring type is the same as espn’s head to head category am I correct?

        2) my weekly deadline is: daily – tomorrow

        3) I so want to take Booker over Butler and Kemba, am I going nuts?

          Sup, my man!

          I haven’t played on ESPN, so not sure how it compares to Yahoo.

          Not crazy, but I think Jimmy is better. We all have different perspectives, though, so go with your gut

            Last question bud: how do you set your draft into randomize order? I cant seem to find it

            • Son

              It’s set to random already

      Not sure if you can, as the benchmark numbers will likely be off. I guess you could divide the target number by 8, then multiply by 11 to account for the 3 extra spots? If anyone else has a solution, please chime in.
