Daily, Weekly, and Rest of Season Projections

I know it's been a while since I've updated the blog.  A lot has been going on that will make the site better that you all should start to see over the course of the next few months.  But in the meantime, we're adding a really cool feature for the start of Baseball season that we're hoping will add to your roster management experience.  We've partnered with AccuScore to bring you in-season projections for all of your Fantasy Baseball players.  In the past we've given you our own pre-season projections for every player.  And these are very useful in making decisions around drafting and pre-season pickups. But as the season wears on, we all know that things change.  So looking a pre-season projections becomes pretty useless after a point. 

AccuScore has a unique system, explained in detail here , but basically they simulate every play from every game 10,000 times to determine the best probability of what will happen.  Through this method, they will be feeding us daily, weekly, and "rest of season" projections for every player.  So, on your sortable stats pages, you'll now find selections for the projections for the upcoming day, scoring period, and a players projections for the rest of the season (or from that day on).  Also, on the player pages, you'll now see projected points for a player on the Fantasy Trend component for Head to Head leagues, and projected stats for a player in Roto leagues.  You'll also notice a 'Next 7' as an additional lineup view on your Set Lineup pages. 

So, as always, your feedback is welcome and encouraged.  It is the only way we'll know if this is useful for you and how we can make it even better.  We're excited about bringing you this additional data and hope it helps.
