You may recognize Derek Carty from his role on Baseball Tonight, his articles at ESPN.com, or his occasional SportsCenter appearances. He’s also been published by FOX Sports, Sports Illustrated, NBC’s Rotoworld, FanDuel, and Fantasy Insiders, among many others.

Prior to DFS, Derek honed his statistical chops as the Fantasy Manager of two of the biggest sabermetric outlets, Baseball Prospectus and The Hardball Times (now the nerdier branch of FanGraphs — yes, that’s a thing), and holds an elite track record in year-long expert leagues (6 titles while finishing top-3 over 50% of the time). He’s also the only active fantasy writer to have graduated from MLB’s exclusive Scout School, which he blends with his statistical background to form a complete picture of a player.

What am I missing? I just downloaded the CSV and calculated points based on the formula and compared it to the points given. They're all very close, just rounding errors. "(player-popup)Madison Bumgarner":/players/madison-bumgarner-10932 52.63 52.57 Jac... Read More
1) Pitchers have been fixed. I was just checking some things late last night and had it set to the wrong date and forgot to set it back to today. 2) Hmmm, there's no reason why it should be anything other than a small rounding error. Can you give me an e... Read More
