2019 FAN Projections!

The 2019 FAN Projection ballots are now open!

Before you can project any players, you’ll have to select the team you follow most closely towards the top of the screen. If you don’t really follow a team, just pick one. You’ll only have to do this once.

After you’ve selected a team, you can begin projecting players. There are nine categories of interest for pitchers and 10 categories for position players. Pick the values in the drop-down boxes closest to what you think the player will do in 2018. Hit the submit button and you’re done! If you made a mistake, you can always go back and change your selection at any time.

Please note that everything is a rate stat. You’re projecting 2B+3B, HR, SB, and Fielding as a measure of 150 games (basically a full season). The player’s previous stats are shown per 150 games in the projection ballot, too. This will make changing playing-time projections much easier, as you’ll only have to change the games played portion.

That’s really all there is to it. You can filter players by team or, if you go to the player pages, you can project players individually. If you want to see all the players you’ve projected, you can click on the “My Rankings” button, which will show you only what you specifically projected a player to do.

FAN Projections will appear on a player’s page after five ballots have been submitted for him.

If you do notice any issues, please let us know.

Any consideration to widening the K% scale? – Willians Astudillo & Joey Gallo.


Or the avg scale? – I’d like to project Gallo, Davis and maybe Dozier for sub .200’s..

Davis and Gallo will almost assuredly exceed 34.9% K rate. I’d also like to add Moncada.

Trout might be a projection breaker – but I’d like to put him above the 19.9% bb/rate.

.19 point ranges for avg seem way too wide as well – big difference between batting .260 and .279. IMO, they are not the same hitter.

Really might be good if the scale was widened on every category and more buckets were provided – at risk of sounding ungrateful for the chance to contribute to fan projections, these seem a little overly generic.
