Process

At Kenjas Fantasy Sports, we don't believe in trusting one expert’s opinion. Even experts can and will be biased. So we compare the rankings of several experts. After looking up the player rankings of an expert, I copy the list to an excel sheet then go through the long process of placing the rank of each of his players into a column next the same player on my own list. After getting the ranks for each player from five to seven different experts, I will create a formula to find the average of each player.

The next step I take is to look through each players rankings and find where one expert might have ranked a player far different than any other experts. If even two experts were within a logical range of each other, I will leave their rankings as they are. However if only one expert ranks a player much higher or much lower than anyone else does, I will eliminate that particular ranking. In doing this I eliminate the biased opinions from the experts. I do not hold my own rankings any different. If my own ranking of a player is far different than any others, I eliminate that rank as well.

Finally, any players who did not rank in the top 250 by at least 4 of the 6 experts were given less importance than a player ranked by at least four or more experts. For example, WR Josh Gordon has an average ranking of 144.7 but is dropped down to an overall ranking of 215. This is because he is only ranked by three experts while the others above him with a worse overall average ranking are ranked by four or more experts. I believe this in turns eliminates experts not hearing or remembering news releases like Reggie Williams being moved to fifth string by his coach. Since you can count on at least half of the experts to have this knowledge, it would explain why only three experts rank him at all. Thus lowering his level of importance even though three experts still have him ranked like he was before he was moved to 5th string.
