Smallworld Hoops - Dream Teams
(stats and prices as of 12/15)

Just for fun, I like to try to put together the best teams that can be assembled for a given total value. For this purpose, I define "best" as the team with the maximum Smallworld Points (SWP's) per game, where for each player, I use that player's SWP/game average (SWPPG) for the prior ten games. Rosters must satisfy the usual position requirements. Players who are currently injured are not eligible for inclusion (see list below).

I'll try to update these teams weekly. Using prices and stats as of the previous weekend. If anyone can find a better team for the money, email me (see link below), and I'll post your roster and give you credit on this page.

Three teams follow: The best team $50,000,000 can buy, the best team $75,000,000 can buy, and the best team any money can buy. While this is primarily just a fun way to play with the concept, it is also a useful way to identify the most significantly undervalued players or high performance players.
