How much is it to register Fantasy Lineups?
Fantasy Lineups allows you to easily enter your fantasy football roster and many standard scoring rules to calculate the best lineup for the week ahead. The calculation uses statistics from the players past performance and the defense they will be playing against. Naturally Fantasy Lineups is not trying to predict the players exact score, but to provide you with the information to make those tough lineup decisions. Any team owner is going to start Priest Holmes or Marvin Harrison each week; you don?t need a program to help you with that. The program will help you decide between two players like Keyshaun Johnson and Wayne Chrebet.
Fantasy Lineups has included values using historical stats in like situations for rookies and players that missed significant time last year. For players who missed significant playing time last season we used a combination of their replacements points, their previous stats and our own projected stats.
There are three things that must be in place to get your suggested starters. First, make sure the scoring rules are maintained for the players position. Second, make sure the players position is in the max number of starters table. Third, the player must have a projected score greater than the other players for that position on your roster. If the player has no scoring history, it will not get listed as a suggested starter.
This would be more likely to be the case in the beginning of the season. The only stats available are from last year. So suggested starters are based on last years stats and some projected stats input by Fantasy Lineups. As the stats from the 2005 season start to come in, Fantasy Lineups will be better able to make sound decisions.
As a general rule we have used 5 weeks history. Three weeks or less is to finite while 8 weeks or more make any trending almost obsolete. You may need to tweak this for the first few weeks until you find the right number of weeks for you.
Unfortunately Fantasy Lineups has no way to guarantee the results provided by the program. Fantasy Lineups in no way guarantees that by using this programs suggested lineup or cheat sheets you will win your contests or leagues.
You will be able to get the stats to calculate the next week?s lineup by Tuesday evening at 6pm PST. Fantasy Lineups will consider improving this time if users require it.
Sorry the scoring categories are not customizable. The intent of Fantasy Lineups is to provide a tool that will help you decide which player to start this week, not to fully predict the scores. The scoring categories provided should adequately perform this. Please notify Fantasy Lineups with any suggestions for additional scoring categories (Click on Contact Us).
You can use up to 17 weeks of scoring history to calculate a starting lineup or cheat sheet.
The positions are not customizable. Please notify us if you think more positions should be added
