The Process: The Next Evolution in Fantasy Baseball by Jeff Zimmerman November 21, 2018 The Process is done. After months of writing and disagreements, the fantasy baseball guide I wrote with Tanner Bell is for sale. Simply, we researched and created the guide we would want. It’s not going to contain player capsules or positional rankings. Dozens of sources provide them. Instead, it’s going to give the reader the ability to create their own and the 2017 NFBC Main Event Champion and my podcast mate, Rob Silver wasn’t happy about the end results as he states in his intro. Jeff Zimmerman and Tanner Bell are both awful people. Thanks Rob. Before Rob gets to explain himself, here is the general flow of he book. The book starts as a comprehensive guide from creating projections (e.g. Holds), … … turning those projections into player values, … .. how to use those values to come away with a loaded team from the draft (e.g. using ADP to an advantage), … .. and in-season advantages (e.g. two-start pitchers). Besides over 200 pages on procedures, we added dozens of pages on stats including all Steamer projected splits, … … standard Standings Gain Point calculations, … and those formulas incorporated into the projections. I learned a ton putting all my ideas together logically and we are just getting started. Going back to the intro, Rob sort of redeems himself later in his intro. The Process is one of the biggest steps in the last decade or so to bridge that strategy gap. While I claimed that this is the book I would have written if I got my act together to write a book, the reality is there is some new, cutting-edge research that I would never have been able to include. Read this book, learn from this book, take parts of this book and add your own research and analysis to go even deeper than this first edition of the book was able to go. Sadly, as people read this book, winning leagues will get even harder for guys like me. Jeff Zimmerman and Tanner Bell are both awful people. Hopefully, you find the book useful and please let up know how it can be better in the future. And we aren’t as awful as Rob makes us out to be.
