Anyone have an idea how the yahoo "evaluate" button works on trades. How is the algorithm like? What does it do to come up with the trade numbers. Does it just average out all the players at the positions? What are people's thought on this "new function"?

Yahoo's trade evaluation is just making ppl to veto the trade more, every trade is uneven according yahoo
and as previously mentioned is is a "steaming pile" which might be a bit nice in it's description...It is REALLY bad.

I don't use the Yahoo! trade analyzer. What I found in football is that it uses projections that were made well in advance of an event (e.g., an injury). I recall that with Greg Jennings it was still predicting 12 to 14 points per week even though it was clear that he was going to be out for an extended period.

I also agree, it's probably more destructive for people who like to do trades because it creates a 3rd GM (Yahoo) to say it's fair. The more decision makers, the harder to pull trades.

My league moved from yahoo to espn and I think it's much better. I use bbm for trade analysis sometimes and it's good. I really like espn's player rater over yahoos straight numerical rankings. Espn's shows you how many standard deviation a player is above or below the league mean for each category. Much better than a simple number rank.
Where are you seeing the standard deviation for the player rater?
