You can choose to configure up to 5 Comparison Columns including the following stats:

  • Per Game Value over the selected time period
  • Minimum Value over the selected time period
  • Maximum Value over the selected time period
  • Stdev over the selected time period (the higher the value, the less consistent the player values)

If you'd like to view the comparison column in your lineup area, you can check the box to the right of each column definition.  Also, if the formatting looks odd, you will need to refresh your browser.

Will any of this be available on regular projections as well?

Yes, the extra options will be added to regular too though five may be a bit much.  Would you need 5?

stdev stands for standard deviation

so the higher the stdev (in green) the better

Yes, stdev is Standard Deviation and the higher the value, the more varied the player values.  This isn't necessarily good or bad since you do want to catch the inconsistent players on their up days. It's been included since some members like to use it in their analysis.

For now, I setup my columns as follows:

  • Per Game - Past 1 Game
  • Per Game - Past 3 Games (used for pitchers)
  • Per Game - Past 5 Games (used for hitters)
  • Per Game - Min Past 3 Games
  • Per Game - Max Past 3 Games

I've only been testing with these for a few days so I'm sure they will evolve over time.

You can select Full Season, Past Days, or Past Games for the time period.
