Player Search:

Make use of PlayerGroups to make better use of your time

by ja on 8/14/2012 1:58:50 PM

One of the more common tasks that fantasy basketball managers need to carry out is analyzing a group of players against another group. This is required during drafting, trading, and tweaking of one's fantasy team management so it's important to be good at this and to have quality tools that make it as easy and convenient as possible.

At SignAndTrade, we allow you to make use of "Persistent Player Groups". These grous are named, persistent groups of players that you build and save and then reuse over and over. You can even import leagues from other services like Yahoo! fantasy games. PlayerGroups, once created, can bed used all over the site within various analysis tools. This saves you time and makes things much simpler to run comparisons.

Maybe you are analyzing a particular trade at work during your lunch hour, but you run out of time and then want to continue analyzing it later. Maybe you think you'll want eventually want to look at something very similar, but might want a couple of players different. Player groups allow you to save the collections of players that you are working with and to pull them up again later. Right now, there are two main places on SignAndTrade to use Player Groups:

  • Comparing one group to another using our Player Group Comparison Tool (aka Fantasy Baskeball Trade Analyzer) in which you
    can also view their stats as a collective and individually


  • The Fantasy Team Analyzer has player group functionality built in and it can be used to determine how well a particular group
    of players would stack up versus an "ideal" (or target) fantasy basketball team. Use it to figure out which players can be swapped away to help the team as a whole.


Soon, we will provide tools that allow you to see how groups stack up schedule wise as well as allow you to view the most recent news for all of the players in the group (rather than having to search for each one indivually).

Here are some ideas for potential ways you can make use of PlayerGroups within our tools:

  • Store the fantasy teams in your leagues hosted on other sites. Use our group comparison tool to see how they stack up.

  • Store your own fantasy teams. Then you can see before/after stats to run "what if" scenerios for trades and waiver moves.

  • Store the winning teams from previous years in your leagues. These serve as a baseline. If you build a team that would beat that team then you know you have a good team. Find out using the Fantasy Team Analyzer


In order to make use of PlayerGroups all you have to do is login (create a free account if you don't have one). Once you have an account you can create groups, manage them, import them from other services, and crunch data like never before using our extensive collection of fantasy basketball tools. I hope you enjoy using them and please feel free to let us know what you think!

What do you mean by simulations? Yes you could, but we ccuallate the projected points a different way than your current site. The more information you have available to you, the better right?

above . Remember this is a tool that assumes you are sttairng everyone involved. If you have Tom Brady and you are trading away Carson Palmer, the Trade Analyzer does not know that you have Brady and may give you results you didn’t expect. Use this as a tool, not an end-all-decision-maker. You have to use your own common sense to use the information for your team. Its just giving you an idea of what you are giving up and what you are potentially getting.In your scenario, since you are giving up 2 (RB & WR) and getting 1 (RB). It would make sense to make the trade despite losing pts if you had someone to start in place of the WR you are giving up. My guess is Brown is a situational play for you and you have some depth at WR, so this trade would probably leave you with 2 good RB's and 3 startable WR's. In that case, Accept! However, If it leaves you with 2 good RB's and only 2 Startable WR's and noone to use for your Flex, you may want to think a little bit about accepting. Depth and Consistancy out way having one Stud.With all of that being said, I think offloading a injury concern RB on a struggling offense with a WR 2/3 for a fantasy stud RB1 is probably a no brainer for you http://fauwjmdegbc.com [url=http://kyywejfwp.com]kyywejfwp[/url] [link=http://aizdujccqn.com]aizdujccqn[/link]
