Early 2021 TGFBI ADP

It is that time of year again! TGFBI has started their drafts and twitter is buzzing with draft boards and TGFBI chatter. If you don’t know what TGFBI is, it stands for The Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational. It is a collection of 29 15-team leagues with an overall component run by yours truly. To get into TGFBI, you must either be producing fantasy baseball related content, win a satellite league, or win a raffle that I put on during events like Podapolooza.

These are 15-team 5×5 leagues run on NFBC with an overall. They are 30-round slow drafts with 4-hour clocks. Thanks to the genius of Smada and my guys at FWFB there is a live ADP running, along with live projections and historical standings. It is a pretty amazing sheet that Smada has run for the last four seasons.

AMR stands for “average manager rating” and is simply an average of rank adjusted points (explained in historical section on Smada’s sheet) for a given player. New managers were assigned a value of 53.4 (average of returning participants)

So higher AMR = “better” owners drafted them?
