    Pids are you mentally slow

    ANother thing to consider is that Yahoo ranking also takes into account per-minute values.
    So if a player players 5 mintues per game and gets 5 points and 2 rebounds. He will likely be ranked higher than a player who plays 40 minutes per game and scores 20 points and 10 rebounds.
    So although statistically the guy playing 5 minutes is 'better', if you fill your fantasy team with those kind of players you will never win. Because the statistics don't take into account that if that guy playing 5 minutes actually played 40, his stats would not increase at the same rate.
    Although it would be pretty cool if they did. Then Greg Smith would be a MONSTER!

    But I do have 1 quesion for pids. I get what your point is from a statistical perspective, but although JKidd is statisically better right now in 9 cat leagues according to Yahoo's algorythms, you wouldn't rather have him than some of the players he's ranked above would you? Such as Russell Westbrook, Al Jefferson, Mike Conley, Lamarcus Aldridge, Rondo, Gay, etc etc etc.
