    Hey is there a way you can add BB/9 for pitching? And I suppose for a league that uses singles, doubles, and triples I can just use a counting stat category like HR to input those?

    That’s awesome! You have combined to spreadsheets that use the same input into one easy spreadsheet. Now, I can see “what it takes to win” point-wise, plan my strategy to get there with stats category by category and have my SGP factors to plug into my rankings ALL IN ONE PLACE. Thank you!

    Tanner, is this the same as the What It Takes to Win Calculator? It looks like it.

    Nevermind, it has the same inputs but gives you SGP calculations.

      Exactly. It’s the WITTW file with something I should have added a long time ago.

    Tanner, any idea where to get historical standings for other stats? My 12 team league had been a standard 5×5 until this past offseason, when we decided to switch to OBP over AVG and QS over W. Your methods have been awesome in helping me, but now I’m finding SGP difficult without any past data… Thanks for all your help!

    One piece of advice I would give you when switching to QS…You’re probability for getting a QS out of a pitcher you stream is much better than trying to get the W. I load up on hitters and grab 1 or 2 stud pitchers early in the draft knowing that my average to scrub pitchers I grab at the back end of the draft are actually place holders for streamers throughout the season. Just something to think about. I would recommend Razzball’s Stream-o-nator as a great tool for knowing who to stream. http://razzball.com/streamers/

      One thing to keep in mind is that by streaming you will take a hit on your ERA & WHIP because you will be streaming the pitchers that are not owned and there is a reason why they are available. You have to play the matchups (MIA was a great team to stream against last year!). It is important to have strong middle relievers in your lineup on the days you are not streaming to help negate the hit on ERA & WHIP and also add to your strikeout totals. With streaming starters, my goal for the end of the year is to be in the middle of the standings in QS, ERA & WHIP but then be at the top in Ks, Saves and as many of the hitting categories as possible.

    Tanner, great site and another great resource! Quick question about the SGP Calculator. What would you recommend doing with a league that has expanded or contracted over time? I’ve been in the league three years. We had 13 teams in 2012 and 2013, but only 12 teams in 2014. I’m not sure how to make this work in the calculator. What do you recommend?
