I've been able to tweak my formulas and run entire season, game by game simulations that I hope prepare this system to do much better this year.
I ran this system here on this forum last year. You can find the thread here:
If you read the first couple posts, it explains a lot, however there are a few big changes to how the system will run this year so I'll give a "short" explanation taken from last years thread with some modifications.
