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

  • Position Battle Playing Time for First Full Week of Preseason Action August 13, 2014
    We continue to update the position battles around the league, but in this blog, I thought looking at preseason playing time would be interesting. The depth chart doesn’t always tell the whole story and it’s certainly worth noting when players get in the game and who they get to play with, whether it’s with the first-team offense or the backups. 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 […]
