When FN aggregates rankings and projections, some sources are more aggressive with their projections and some are more conservative.
The Line-up Assistant lets you choose which set of projections you'd like to use. The Aggressive option lets you apply the upper limits of projected player production to your optimal line-up while the Conservative option applies the lower end of each player's projected potential.
The Consensus option uses the final calculations from FFN's NerdRank algorithm.
Please Note: After changing Rankings/Projections Preference, click on the Suggest Lineup button to recalculate an optimal line-up.
Bang for your Buck
In the player list below, you'll find a column entitled "Bang". Here's what that means.
FantasyNerds.com compares its rankings and projections to the weekly salaries from Yahoo looking for the best values for every dollar that each player costs - hence the name Bang for your Buck.
The first thing we do is calculate the cost per point for every player. How much will each projected point cost you?
Next we calculate the percentage of cap room that each player will cost you. In the end, we want the most points for the least amount of money.
We use those numbers in our final calculations to produce a Bang for your Buck score for every player. The LOWER the Bang for your Buck score, the better.
