Dynasty Fantasy Baseball Trade Calculator: August 2023
Chris Clegg updates his 3-year projection model for the Dynasty Trade Calculator
We have continued to evolve and upgrade the trade calculator app since we first unveiled it in February in a Google Sheet. I just spent way more time than I am willing to admit refining the projections to have updated trade values for prospects.
If you want to know more about the system and how to access it, keep reading below!
Are you looking to see how much draft picks are worth in a trade?
How do your players project to perform over the next three years?
Playing for 2025 and want to look at specific values then?
Making a 3-1 trade and need to add replacement level value?
What players should you add to make the trade fair?
The Dynasty Dugout trade calculator will help you make decisions based on my three-year dynasty projection system.
This system has been a long time coming. I had the vision to build a 3-year projection system for dynasty baseball leagues to help managers understand how to value players over several years.
With dynasty trade calculators being popular in the fantasy football community, I always wondered why we did not have any for the dynasty baseball fanatics.
To build the system, I began by using ZIPS projections. ZIPS not only projects for the current season, but they also have projections for two future seasons. So, I took ZIPS projections for 2023, 2024, and 2025.
From there, I modified them in an SGP calculator, changing playing time and innings pitched projections for future seasons, especially with prospects. Top 500 Prospects are all in the system.
The trade calculator is designed to help you make decisions in trades. I have modified prospect projections to help give a more accurate projection on them. I have also added a tab for “prospect trade value.” Basically, this looks at players just drafted or signed internationally that may not provide any on-field production by 2025. Does that mean they don’t have dynasty value? No. Therefore this column helps add the perceived value these prospects carry in trades in dynasty.
