My Special Blend projections take data from a variety of free projection sources on the market and also use xStats and stats from previous years. For years, I have been running linear regression analysis with all of these sources each year to figure out what has the best impact on the actual results in a given year.
I’ve been running my own analysis of baseball projections since 2012. It’s been an educational process to better learn what works and what doesn’t work, and I consistently share my results with you each year to help educate you as well.
It’s obvious that the best owners, time after time, are the ones who don’t panic once it gets later in the draft and the familiar names are off the board.

Fantasy baseball draft season is approaching! Scrap whatever you were doing because I officially welcome you to the eleventh year of Mr. Cheatsheet. I’m here, once again, at your service to help you win your fantasy leagues aided by the craziest Excel spreadsheets in the land.
