Like Topps used to issue the Topps Traded baseball card set at midseason to account for updates and omissions in its original release, I need to issue an update to the preseason ratings I issued last week. The only correction I have right now is that I included Brandyn Curry in the Harvard projection. (In my dream world, the Shabazz Muhammad situation gets resolved in the next 48 hours, too.) However, there may be a few other errors also. Thus, I am including a link to the list of returning players I used.
Nobody’s under any obligation to check the file, but if you thought I was way off on a team (especially after reading the explanation of how the ratings are constructed), you can check the list to see if I’ve made a mistake on who’s returning, and report to me any errors you encounter by Wednesday.
Each player listed had to appear in at least 10% of his teams minutes last season *and* be expected to play (for the same team) at some point this season. So even players that are going to be out for a few weeks are listed. But players that played, for example, a total of 42 minutes last season are not. Basically, they had to appear in the player stats section of my team page to be eligible for this list. Gracias.
