A New Site Tool is History

I’ve wanted to add a Player Matchup History tool to the site for a little while now, and it’s almost a reality. Phase One is done, so I wanted to introduce people to it. What this aspect of the tool does is it takes the 2008 schedule and ranks the players based on their average points per game against their opponents for a given week.

For example, let’s say you need a QB in Week 12. You’d head here and you’d see all the QBs ranked by their average points per game against their Week 12 opponents (you can go back 1 year or as many as 6 years). We default the tool to go back two years, so if you were in need of a QB and checked this tool out, you’d see that Chad Pennington was the 5th best QB for the Week (12) based on his history against the Titans. In his two games, he’s completed 76.9% of his passes and has averaged 21.2 fantasy points, so that would be a good example of the power of the History Tool

    We recently received an email to the website asking us our personal feelings of the so-called “Zero RB” strategy that’s popped up in fantasy circles, but only seems to have exploded in recent years. As an avid fantasy player, I don’t subscribe to just one method of roster construction, but instead remain open to using […]
