Poll – The Numbers Game

Written by Schwarzwalder on July 27 2017

For anyone that has been following SCT this year, you’ll know that Forum regular, Adam, has been busy crunching numbers for us since the early pre-season.  While we have Nath’s Stats as a permanent fixture on the site, Adam has been providing us with his personal research stats on a ‘pro-bono’ basis.  For this we are extremely appreciative for all the numbers he’s been providing all year long (I cannot say that enough!).  For a recent example of Adam‘s research, check out this very helpful answer from MJs Fallen Premiums yesterday.

Adam is already looking ahead to 2018 and wanting to streamline his operations to help us even further.  He’d like to know your thoughts on the following polls:

How would you define ‘Premium’ status on each line?

 

How would you define a Premium in DEF?

Should Adam ‘combine’ his categories in future? (eg. Rory Laird – Adelaide Oval Avg in Wins or Adelaide Oval Night Avg or Night Wins Avg)

 

Should Adam intertwine his categories (as example) for his analysis?

  1. Found the numbers a bit overwhelming early but like Bruce above, I have used them regularly for captaincy candidates in the past 3 months. Thanks for all your work.

  2. Obviously I’d like to thank Adam for putting these stats together – they have been very helpful over the past few months.

    One potential alternative to having a set cut-off average is to define a premium as being within the top x percentile of players in their position. This has a couple of advantages:
    #1 It’s not perfect, but it is less arbitrary than picking some cut-off number out of thin air.
    #2 It’s self-adjusting. This means that if, say, the forward stocks are good one year and crap the next, you don’t need to change the cutoff.
