*WHAT IS A SCOUTSCORE?

It's the final evaluation metric that gives a fantasy owner a feel for a player's value based on his current projections and even past results. A player's SCOUTscore shows an owner how much a player impacts a fantasy team's roster when drafted. The theory is built on each fantasy owner drafting average player stats for each remaining position. So, if you drafted Mike Trout in 2014 (.287 with 115 runs, 36 home runs, 111 RBIs and 16 stolen bases in 602 at bats), he finished with a SCOUTscore of 11.24. By drafting him, you gained 11.24 points in the standings in the five offensive categories if you were able to draft average player stats for your 13 other offensive positions.
