    Is this only for Rotisserie leagues? My H2H league rolls over, but all I can seem to find is plain “Standings”, which is just W-L-T, which lacks stat data. You know where accumulated stat totals can be found for past seasons of H2H leagues? Thanks!

      Hi Sean. You’re right. They do delete the underlying statistics data. I know they track it during the year and it is available during the season, but it appears that it is destroyed at the end of the season. Unfortunately, I don’t have a resource to provide me with this information either. If your league H2H categories are close to standard 5×5 categories, I think you can still use rotisserie standings as your baseline.

      H2H does have the added curveball of teams not necessarily trying to compete in all the categories to win. A number of teams will try to focus on 7 out of 10, for example, and that is a legitimate strategy in the H2H format. I have not been able to figure out a way to account for that and include it in a ranking. For the H2H leagues I play in, I don’t even try to factor this in. I pursue a completely balanced team at the draft and if I determine in-season that punting a couple categories will be advantageous, I’ll adapt as the playoffs approach.

        Thanks, I learned of SGP this offseason. My plan now it to record the team stats before they delete them at the end of the year. It won’t help me now, but at least I’ll have data for next season. My league uses 9 hitters, so I’m not sure standard league SGP values are accurate.

          I would agree. You might get some misleading results with the smaller roster sizes.

    I’ve always historically recorded final team stats (actually, do it monthly to track trending) to keep record of this data.

    Another suggestion would be to use http://www.rotocalculator.com (if you use Yahoo as your platform), you can dig into your entire league’s performance back to 2010 (including weekly data). It’s got some nice analysis that you can use to trend league performance.

    Thanks, Another Sean. That site looks extremely interesting. Thanks for passing it along. I’m having trouble getting my Yahoo account to authorize the site, it’s just loading a blank page, but I am very intrigued. Looks like it could be a great resource.
