"Change Stats" on player?


"Change Stats" on player?

In some leagues, you can click on a player and "Change Stats", choosing a different year for him. Is that expected? Allowed?

Re: "Change Stats" on player?

Yes and it can be a great way to dial-in the team you want to build. For example, maybe you draft Hank Greenberg but want him at 1B. He has a great season where he played 1B. Or maybe you value defense highly, I do. Babe Ruth's 1923 season is as good as his 1921 but his defense was much better. Or maybe you want Honus Wagner to play SS not OF?

If you change stats on a player after you draft and before the season starts, note if you drop out you cannot immediately redraft. So make sure you change the stats back before dropping out.

If you change stats and then sign a player to a contract they are locked into that season while on the contract.

Finally there is a point in the season, maybe Game 100? After which you can no longer change the stats.

Re: Re: "Change Stats" on player?

Wow. This seems like a game-changer. I had no idea. In a "Random" league I was in, one team somehow had an entire roster of "bold" rankings for his players, where most of us had two or three "bold." ... That led to me discovering this "Change Stats" option.

Re: "Change Stats" on player?

I mainly play in ATG. I am not aware of many (any) players you can put into the Bold that are not already there. Maybe I am missing out. Most of the changes I make, reduce a players Rank but just tailors them to what I want. Could be different in some of the other leagues though I guess.
