Fantasy Baseball Season 2017 Summary

Well, the playoffs are in the books, and the Makers lost both of their “consolation ladder” games. The first was a close contest between myself and the former league champion, and for most of the two week session I was in control of things. But as my star players (those not DTD, which was a ton of them) started riding pine, my scores started to drop. The Makers took the loss 591 to 609. The second game was the same story, though the Makers were in the lead until the last weekend. They lost to their nemesis from the final week of the regular season, 458 to 519.

Roster Performance

Here’s the roster I drafted, by pick number and overall number, and their projected lines. As you probably know, I made a lot of adjustments over the season. I’ll take those into account in a later update.

24 277 Manuel Margot, OF 341 318
25 300 Francisco Cervelli, C 211 167
Totals 9,748 7,746

Quite a performance difference, wouldn’t you say? 2002 point deficit between projected and actual during the course of the season. I made 35 roster moves, which I will talk about in a later post. But overall the Makers ended up with 7,070 points total. So all my machinations resulted in nearly 700 points less than if I had stood pat over the year. Of course, it matters when you score those points, as my 8-13 record shows (and our new league champion proved, with an 11-10 overall record).

Thanks for reading!
