Updating the Player Comp Projections App
Updates and additions to my favorite app of re-draft szn
Last year, I introduced my Player Comp Projections tools, which I then condensed into a single app for easier use. The app is back again for 2022, but with a few modifications and improvements that I think will only strengthen it — and benefit users.
The app has the same features as last year, but is tabbed at the top by position. This will allow users to check players at different positions without losing their work.

There are also three new items in the side panel. Unlike last year, where I pre-determined the statistics used for each position, users will be able to customize the variables that determine similarity. The ones pre-loaded are what I currently believe to be best, but I certainly do not claim to be infallible. If you come up with more statistically significant combos, definitely let me know!
Users will also have the ability to customize the maximum number of comps used (anywhere from 5 to 100), and minimum similarity level. This will give control over sample size, but also provide more detail on just how similar the comps are. Note that similarity is measured 0 to 1, but you cannot go lower than 0.5 in the app (not sure why you would want to anyway).
The comparison graphs are back, but since similarity thresholds will vary the number of comps pulled in for each player, I also let you know the number in the legend off the right. Consider lowering your similarity threshold to further populate the sample if necessary.
Now that you’re all caught up, check out the app for yourself! The tool will remain free to use, but consider a paid subscription to help support my work. Any commentary or troubleshooting can be sent anytime to my Twitter.
