The Rotisserie 500 game was introduced last year and taken out for a test run in two high-level leagues, in New York and Toronto. During the course of 2011, several of us wrote about the experience extensively, we surveyed the participants and analyzed the final results. In the end, we decided that Roto500 was a promising new format but needed a few tweaks.

Back in March, I gave our writers the task of coming up with some out-on-a-limb projections for 2011. We run into trouble every year when we ground our future expectations in past realities, so it is an important exercise to create some possibilities that we would never have considered. Let's look back on the 20 bold projections we floated out on March 18. Remember - these were all pretty far-fetched back then.

The underlying concept of XRD is that year-to-year player performance does not inherently follow a smooth trend. Rather, surges are followed by declines, and declines by surges, even as overall growth may still occur. What this means for us is that we need to significantly downgrade players coming off of peak or career years, and carefully target those who are coming off of down years. In fact, we might want to build our entire draft strategy around that. So did it work?

We cannot predict the future; all we can do is provide a sound process for constructing a "most likely expectation for future performance." All we can control is the process. As such, if we've captured as much information as is available, used the best methodology and analyzed the results correctly, that's about the best we can do. We simply can't control outcomes. What we can do is analyze all the misses to see why they occurred.
