A new option for the printable fantasy baseball cheatsheets is available who prefer them to the Excel customizable sheets. I’ve put out two cheatsheets for the ZiPS projections (one for standard ESPN rosters and another for standard Yahoo rosters). There are three main free projection systems for the season available here and this is my brief explanation of the ZiPS system so you can see whether it’s your flavor:
Similarly to Marcels, ZiPS is a system that has been around for a long time, developed by Dan Szymborski. This system mostly uses 4 years of statistics (a weight of 8, 5, 4 and 3 respectively for each year) but uses 3 years for pitchers and younger/older players. A player’s growth or decline is determined based on player type (locating large groups of players with similar statistical characteristics). So, while the other systems are somewhat designed to find averages and regress to the mean, this system finds similar player types and follows their own regression or progression.
So, without further ado, feel free to check out the PDF cheatsheets that have the ZiPS projected stats and their converted values for roto leagues.
