Jones hurts Forte…a little

Still trying to get caught up on a bunch of stuff back from my vacation, and I’m working on a large article on this year’s top backup players, but I do have a main topic to deal with today: Kevin Jones and the Bear RB situation.

First up, we added a few more site upgrades. The SOS tool now takes into consideration home/away stats. It’s kind of hard to explain, but this is all you need to know: all the data used, if you decide to use Home/Away Splits (you can choose to view overall numbers or for both home and away) you use only the data for each team’s home and away performances, so it’s even more accurate and can be even more revealing.

We also implemented all the yardage allowed stuff for defensive teams; all we have to do now is actually calculate our projections for each defense and project the number of games each DT will give up 0-199, 200-299, 300-349, 350-399, 400-449, and 450+ points this season and we’ll be ready to go.

If you’re loo […]

  • Poll Result Analysis: RB Sleeper Candidate Targets August 12, 2014
    Over the last week, we posted a poll asking you which RB sleeper candidate was at the top of your targets list. The results varied throughout the week and Falcon rookie RB Devonta Freeman led most of the way, but things certainly changed after a full week of preseason games:                           As you can see, the final results put 49er rookie RB Carlo […]

  • How the New Focus on Defensive Penalties may Affect IDP August 11, 2014
    FantasyGuru.com IDP Analyst Corby Yarbrough can be found on Twitter @Corby_Yarbrough. Not that there is anything we as IDP players can do about it, but I just needed to vent my grief that an already inconsistent aspect of fantasy football has the potential to drive us even a little more crazy in 2014. Week One of the NFL preseason is in the books, and if the […]
