2016 In-Season Valuations: Third Edition
There is only a month left in the season, but already many of you (well, a few of you) have been asking questions about player valuation for 2016. With this in mind, I thought I’d provide one final in-season valuation update before we close the door on this season.

The formulas used to derive these valuations are not based on last year’s statistical formulas but rather on 2016 statistics year-to-date. Average salaries are based on the auction rosters for the CBS, LABR, and Tout Wars AL- and NL-only expert leagues. The formulas are SGP-based off of the aforementioned auction rosters for CBS, LABR, and Tout Wars.
Last time, I looked at the Top 10 hitters and pitchers from each league 81 games into the 2016 season, 54 games into the 2016 season, and through the entire 2015 season. There is no reason to mess with a successful and winning formula, so I thought I’d roll with the same familiar format.
