Fictional Rookie pool


Fictional Rookie pool

Hello sports fans
I’ve just created a pool of rookies ( fictional names) and if anyone wants to borrow (import) feel free to do so from the “Fight for October “ in the Rookies Rookies team. There are over hundred which makes for a good rookie 3 round draft

Cheers

Thats awesome, When my league gets started, I probably will.

If they look like most FFO players, their Real Stats are too loaded for most "realistic" customs. Careful. There's tons of stat monsters in that league, more so than any other PC Custom that comes to mind. So it's player pool is definitely "unique".

Re: Fictional Rookie pool

Actually I took actual teams which had a cross section of rankings and simply renamed the players. So, they are fairly balanced although could use some more tweaking - the tweaking seems never ending. I Imported to another league I am babysitting and their rankings look pretty good there.

I also have draft classes in my sandbox for my custom league if people care to use them. They are historical classes, but can also be used for fictional classes by changing names, etc. I have 2003-2018 and will have 2019 players done soon. Players are real players and their real stats are based on MLEs.

You'll need to change some things like progression types and pitcher stamina since they are set based on what my league uses. but thats easily fixed with bulk tools. Our draft classes also include players up to age 27, so you'd likely only want to use the younger folks in each class.
