During the summer months, I try to predict the rotations and minutes allocations for each team. Then, I go to each player and figure out the per-minute production in each category. Multiply those numbers by the minutes played projection and…POOF! Per-game value of each player. That’s only half the battle, though. The man of Razzball Hockey, Viz, lends a second pair of eyes and we go over everything together to note and address any discrepancies and anamolies. Finally, the sheet is sent to the Wizard of Razzball, Rudy, who packages all the data and produces the aesthetically-pleasing and user-friendly sortable table that you have all become accustomed to at Razzball.
You can find the table by clicking on the RANKINGS tab on the basketball homepage or Preseason Projections (Per-Game Value).
Since the game of fantasy basketball incorporates field goal percentage and free throw percentage, I calculated the z-score for each category in order to derive overall value for each player. Z-score is the number of standard deviations from the mean a data point is. The z-score table shows where a player stands in relation to others for each category.
You can find that table under the RANKINGS tab on the homepage or Preseason Rankings (Z-Score Edition).
