tiobueno,

 

Of course you can use any method you like for choosing your favorite players - but I'd caution you against using total score / number of picks.

 

The reason is that had this been a measure in CAPS all along, many, many players would have behaved differently from the beginning. Judging players by a set of rules other than those they are playing under is quite likely to lead to some suspect results. My personal situation aside, Seth (TMFBent), is a *much* better investor than average score per pick would indicate - and it'd be my very strong suspicion that his average score per pick would be much, much higher than it is right now had he been judged against that metric all along - because he would have behaved very differently.
