I had to decrease the value of some statistics more than was mathematically logical because it is pretty obvious that Trevor Hoffman was not 50% more valuable than A-Rod last year, which is what was happening because of the high value I placed on saves. The current model has been tested extensively and should provide a decent measure of how valuable a player is to his fantasy team.
