Week 7 Kicker Recommendations

Kickers averaged 8.1 FP, sa little over their season average of 7.9. The system had a relatively poor week. "Starts" did pretty well, averaging 8.2 FP and posting a good winning percentage. But "Sits" confounded the system, outscoring the "Marginal Starts" and reversing my target W-L. "Neutrals" were the highest scoring group and were more reliable than their expected 50-50 W-L record. "Marginal Starts" were just bad:

As a reminder, the table shows the Average FP of the kickers in each category. A “Win” is if the recommendation is right, relative to scoring 7 FP. For example, three kickers who rated as “Start” last week scored over 7 FP, so there were three “wins.” One “Start” scored under 7 FP, so that was a “loss”, and one equaled 7 FP, which is a “tie.” Remember, a “Sit” kicker who gets less than 7 FP is a “win” for the system (one of those last week) and over 7 FP is a “loss” (two of those); a tie is a 7 FP day (none).

The algorithm's record on the year is pretty good. "Sits" have been generally bad options (if sometimes obviously bad ones) although they have fallen off the "two-thirds right" goal. "Starts" are also...
