First off, Ottoneu is great. So thank you. Here’s my wishlist item:
One feature of most other fantasy baseball/sports sites is a “roster trends” section where you can see, for all of your players, % ownership across other leagues on that site. Ottoneu has this information in both downloadable form and on the Free Agent search on the Players tab. However, I don’t think there is anywhere to easily access this info for your own team (though maybe I just don’t see it). Right know, I’m pretty sure you either have to do a hack where you hit the “include my team” box on a Free Agent search (and do it twice, once for batting and once for pitching) or you can download salaries and rosters and manually match things up in Excel or Google Sheets.
I think it would be great to have this info on the “Rosters” page or on the “Lineups” page (as one of the drop-downs). Even better, I’d love to have it on the “Cut Players” tab. The reason to put it there is because when you are forced to cut players (i.e. when you are over cap or roster limits and are limited in what you can access on the site), it’s really nice to know who your least rostered players are as a means of at least whittling down your cut decision.
If I could go further on this concept, I would redesign the “Cut Players” tab further to include as much info as possible to help inform who you should cut. I would move the “your recent transactions” table to the bottom of the page, allowing you to include many more columns on the roster table on that page. In a perfect world, I’d want to know (in addition to salary, position, and cost):
- The roster trend info on the Free Agent search tab (Roster %, 7 Add %, 30 Add %, Avg $, Med $)
- Some info on their performance. Perhaps P/G (or P/IP) for the season and in the last 30 days.
Even if all of this info was not on there or it would be a big lift to include, I think the simple addition of the “roster %” to the “cut players” tab would make a big difference.
Thanks for the great site and for reading community feedback.
