and would like to give different weights to each Roto category that
you select, you can with our player projections software. Within the Setup|Edit
the Rotisserie scoring option and check the Advanced
option located above the scoring grid.
This option will allow you to weigh each
category according to your preference.
Although most leagues use an equal
weighing for each Rotisserie category some leagues do not. Even if
your league uses an equal weighing system, it's important to
understand that not every statistical category has an equal
predictability standpoint, here is the revised 3 year correlation
forecasting for each of the following player stat categories :

statistical terms of correlation, 1.00 is considered a perfect "fit",
the better the fit the more reliable the forecast. Based on this
information we know that there is more predictability in
forecasting Homeruns, RBI, Stolen Bases, Pitcher's strikeouts and
WHIP. WHIP in years past had shown a slightly poorer correlation,
but it's possible that the shift towards pitching, post steroids era,
has since normalized this category.
Pitcher's Strikeouts and Stolen bases are by far the most
predictable on a year by year basis. Categories that offer poor
predictability year over year include Batting Average and
those who would like to play the percentages, for 2010 we suggest the
following weighing within these typical categories.

Overall, the tweaking discussed above
won't change the rankings dramatically, but you will be be increasing
the odds of predictability for your team...and whenever there is an
statistical advantage to gain, it's something worth exploiting.
