  1. Is there a way to show the total points for all league winners this year in Ottoneu points leagues to compare? Three teams in our league (almost four) scored 18,000 points or more, and it would be interesting to see where those numbers stack up against the rest of the leagues.

  2. Could we show the PPG and PPIP numbers as well?

  3. I would expect that the winner would have fewer points in the FG staff league considering the skill of the managers. I won with about 17600 but someone in my league spent $82 for Matt Kemp, which should tell you a bit about the overall skill level…I bet the FG league has among the most overall combined points for all teams in the league.

  4. In reply to all the comments above, I don’t think we have a way to get all of the stats into one place and, if we did, I am not sure it would be telling, as per Matt Hunter’s comment, as well as some other factors. Yes, a high level of competition in the league should bring down high scores, as players should be more evenly distributed. There is also an impact from how trade-happy a league is – I am in multiple ottoneu leagues and in some you can safely assume any $40+ player on a team in 5th or lower will be up for sale while in others, owners are far less willing to sell. A league in its first year should have lower high scores than a league in future years, as a team that enters a second or third year auction with a lot of good values can spend big on free agents.

    The recipe for a really high scoring individual team (not counting my fake team above) would be a great owner, in a weak league, entering the season with a few great values in place, and with a bunch of owners willing to sell their stars.
