Player Stat

Player Stat

I joined a pro league and I'm trying to do my research before the draft. How come I can't see the player season fantasy point average? I can only see how many shots, points, reb, etc. for the players. I'm used to seeing the current season and past season fantasy point average.

Football is different, since they really don't use percentages in scoring. 

 

Hoops has FG%, FT%. Baseball has BA, ERA, WHIP. 

That's why there is no generic "fantasy points" in those sports. 

 

Hope this helps.

Different leagues use different scoring systems. 

Roto, for instance, does not use a point for rebound, assist, etc. 

In categorical H2H, shooting percentages are involved. 

 

It would have to be a straight points league to tabulate any "fantasy points".

Unable to get Game Played stats through Fantasy API

Hi,

I'm new here and I'm currently trying to use Yahoo's fantasy API to get Game Played stat that is not set in our league's scoring settings. The Yahoo Specialist told us that we need to delete another stat inorder to enable the Game Played stat. We don't want to do it right now, but is there any way I can get the Game Played stats using the API without having it on our scoring system?
