DUPR Data Deep Dive Post MLP Shuffle Draft



This August 5-7 MLP returns, this time at Newport Beach.


Every team in the league had the option to put one player on waiver and draft a replacement. They also had the opportunity to make trades before the shuffle draft occurred. More than half of the teams elected to do so.

Trades:

  • Maggie Remensye (Florida Smash) traded for Michelle Esquivel (Team Clean)

  • Maggie Brascia (Ranchers) traded for Jackie Kawamoto (Jackrabbits)

  • Corrine Carr (Team Lions) was traded for Olivia McMillan (Mad Drops)

Drafted:

  • Pablo Tellez - Team ATX Pickleballers (Altaf Merchant was waived)

  • James Ignatowich - The Ranchers (Austin Gridley was waived)

  • Wes Burrows - The Bus (Eden Lica was waived)

  • Etta Wright - Team Lions (Bobbi Oshiro was waived)


With these new changes made, BLQK is still predicted to be on top at the end of Newport Beach with Florida Smash as runner ups again.




Last season, DUPR Team Power Ratings accurately predicted the top four team and the winning team. A player's Power Rating is the average of their singles and doubles DUPRs. A Team's Power Rating is the sum of all four players' Power Ratings (P4). If a player does not have a singles DUPR, they are assigned the gendered minimum singles rating of the field (5.04 for women and 5.82 for men).





Two women's teams have women's doubles lines with two players in the top 12 for DUPR Power Ratings.

  • BLQK with Parris Todd (#3) and Irina Tereschenko (#5)

  • Jackrabbits with Mary Brascia (#11) and Maggie Brascia (#12)

Team ATX Pickleballers has two men in the top 12 for Power Ratings: Dylan Frazier (#4) and Pablo Tellez (#11)



Make sure to tune in August 5-7 to see these teams battle it out!
