The process is flawed; there are many reasons for this. Chief among them is the absence of firm, objective criteria for what constitutes Hall-worthiness. But we muddle through every year, passing over deserving candidates and sometimes inducting some who are less-deserving.
There can be a better way.
Using Rotisserie dollar values and strict, objective criteria, the fantasy community can create its own Hall of Fame. Steroid use and bad behavior are irrelevant. All that matters is whether a player’s statistical accomplishments helped his fantasy teams during the course of his career.
Here is how we can fix the Hall:
Above is a scroll of the current Rotisserie Hall of Fame members, listed alphabetically. Each is displayed wearing the uniform in which he had the most impact on fantasy teams. Clicking through to each player’s page, you will see his year-by-year career record including his Rotisserie value, and some summary statistics.
Thank you to Todd Zola and David Kaplan for their early contributions to this area.
