*****EXPERT GRADES*****

Grades are the result of a three step process.

First, the field is sorted by raw points achieved and assigned a grade 0-5, with 5 being best.  Roughly the top 3-4% receive 5 points, the next 13-15% receive 4 points, the next 13-15% receive 3 points, and so on.  In weeks with a cut, almost all MCs receive 0 points.

Next, we follow the same method described above, but we replace raw points with salary ($) / fantasy points (pts).

Finally, we weight the two results (2x raw points grade + value grade / 3) and assign a traditional letter grade.
