# Win Shares-Based Projections, v1.0

**1. Give Y-1 a weight of 5, Y-2 a weight of 4, and Y-3 a weight of 3 and calculate the weighted sum of minutes played.**

**2. ****Use the same weights as above and calculate the weighted sum of Win Shares.**

**3. For seasons in which a player had zero MP, assign him 5000 minutes and WS with a per-minute rate based on his draft position:** WS/min = 0.001425 + (-.00000569 * DP#). (DP# for undrafted players = 61)

**4. ****Calculate the player's projected per-minute WS value.** To do this we will find the sum of (2), (3) (if applicable), and 9.4, and divide by the sum of (1) and 5000.

**5. ****Calculate and apply the age adjustment.** If the player is younger than 27, then the age adjustment is equal to (27 - age) * 0.059. If the player is older than 27, then the adjustment is equal to (27 - age) * 0.01.
