Advanced Ownership Percent (Adv% column)

There’s a new column on most pages showing a better ownership percent than that simply from the providers.  Here’s how it works:

  • We only consider leagues being played for money since they’re typically more closely managed.
  • We only look at standard size leagues (12 teams x 13 players or 156 player leagues).
  • We store the ownership percent each day so we’ll be able to display a history.
  • The ownership percent for today is updated about twice per hour so it remains current.
  • Along with the ownership, we also show the change since yesterday.

Other comments:

  • There is a lot of streaming so you’ll see percents jump day-to-day based on who’s playing.  The good thing is you’ll see which players are typically too good to stream in actively managed leagues.
  • For now, we use standard size/scoring leagues since we believe that’s what users are used to seeing.  We may experiment showing leagues that match the user’s size/settings though that will use a much smaller number of leagues.
  • Right now, we show the change since yesterday but plan on adding customization options for past # of days.

We'll be making changes based on suggestions so feel free to post those here.

On most pages, if you check "Edit Display Columns", you can select "Adv Own %".

How do you determine if a league is a money league?

When importing from Yahoo, the league settings will tell us.

Will you add this for DFS projections?

Having the change (+/-) as its own collumn would be great too!!

Yes, a second sortable column does make sense. Thanks

Any chance other league sizes will be accomodated in future?

Possibly.  We use the 12x13 leagues since that's what most Yahoo Pro leagues are so we have a good amount of data.  For other size leagues, the ownership can be useful to see which players are going up/down.  Maybe there's a calculation that will convert standard size percents to other sizes based on probabilities?

Is there any way in the "Team settings" tab to mark your league as a money league? Some of my leagues are money leagues, but aren't considered "cash leagues" in the yahoo system.

Yees to the above. I also have a cash league, that's not in Yahoo's settings. It would be great for us to choose this option under league or team settings.

Sure, we can add this setting.
