Is there a way to see how accurate projections are?

Yes, there is. To analyze how accurate your projections are, click on the "Analysis" tab at the top of the page. Data for analysis will be available around 3:00AM ET the following day for MLB/NBA/NHL and by Wednesday for NFL.

On this page, you will find a Pearson Correlation between actual results, your own uploaded projections, as well as other stats.

Pearson Correlation (r) is a measure of the correlation between sets of data to see how closely related they are. An r value between 0.5 and 1.0 indicates high correlation, where a higher r value indicates a higher correlation.

We can compare the Pearson Correlations between different sets of projections to see how closely related they are to actual player performance. By doing so, we have a useful measuring stick to indicate which projections are better than others. We can also learn how correlated different sets of projections are with each other.
