I just want to make sure I got this right....

the Proj. Bal for a player is what he is expected/projected to do the rest of the way, so this is what I should look at to make future decisions(for the rest of this year) on things like a possible trade, or the value of 1 player over another, etc. So, if Player A has better YTD stats and/or better Proj Total stats but the Proj Bal of Player B is better = I should go with Player B, because he will (projected too, I should say) do better from this point on?

Also, is this just a some kind of subtraction of YTD stats from the original Proj for a player, or do you take other considerations?
