  1. Any chance you could post the actual numbers? I’d like to
    a)do a variance of the projected points minus the actual [Julius Jones in Kubiak versus actual] and
    b)do a sum of the differences of the points gained at that rank [JJ picked at 6 versus the ideal of Portis at 6]. With only the ranks, you don’t really know how bad the mistake was. For instance, KUBIAK put Julius Jones at 6, whereas he ended up at 22. If this represented 10 points, who cares? If it represents 100 points, its a big miss. Similarly, if JJ only got 100 points, and Portis got 200 points, KUBIAK lost 100 points by choosing him there.

  2. thanks for the update. formatting-wise, the non RB posts over run with the right hand table of contents. I don’t see an obvious way to fix this– the table needs to be a lot smaller to fit.
    If you have the raw data of the different site’s projections (in yards), I’d love a copy — mlibbeymail-blogs at yahoo (that’s dot com). Thanks!
