Dynasty Tools/Age Category (free article)

August 25, 2021 by Josh LloydView Comments (15)

We are working to have some dynasty tools on the site this year and more dynasty content, but for the time being, we have introduced something that can help with dynasty evaluations. In your league settings, you will notice that 'AGE' is now a trackable fantasy category. Now, obviously, this isn't a stat that is used in fantasy leagues, but if you turn that on as a stat in your league, it weights more value in projections to younger players. I have been playing around with it, and I gave the Age category a weighting of 2.0 and the projections for dynasty value make quite a bit of sense. It's far from perfect and there and a number of other factors to be looked at, but I think it s a solid way, f you have a dynasty startup draft or are considering dynasty trades, to evaluate the players and the impact age can have on their value. If you are in a win-now build, you can turn the weighting down to 1.0 or even 0.75 to reduce the impact of age of the players' value.

@joshlloyd48 just a suggestion what about a "Dynasty" Category instead of/as well as the "Age" category where the higher the the value is, the higher the players dynasty upside etc.?

Good to know. I have just been doing my own in the head analysis with the age "stat" when considering players.

It isn't ideal and my dynasty rank show was based on trying to figure in upside in future role etc. We are working on some other dynasty stuff.

Thanks Josh this is good for THIS year but not sure it really helps 3 - 4 years down the track? I saw your video a couple weeks about about Dynasty Rookie Rankings e.g. You had Trey Murphy in Tier 8 (#26-32) BUT the with this "Age" Catrogor on at a value 2.0 as you suggest he ranks 11th (when punting TO)? Can you a page out for your Dynasty Rookie Rankings (like your video) BUT perhaps keep it updated as season goes on and players impress or struggle etc. and put less value in to their projections this year and more where you expect them to be in 2, 3 or 4 years down the track?

the biggest thing from a dynasty perspective is trade values and pick values. a Trade Monster that can accommodate that would be huge.

I've had a play around and we are going to do more with dynasty, but for now, I don't mind the results from having age set as -1.2 points in a standard format.

This is helpful. Thank you. Is it possible to add a info box to the league settings that shows what the default is for each cat? Probably asking too much but in the future it would be cool if there was a Contract cat so we could take that into account for NBA real salary leagues. Although, I guess that would also depend on the other salaries on the roster so prbly more difficult to assign to an individual player.

How would you implement this in a points league setup? Give it a score/weight of -2?
