Kicking it in the Cold
Kicking it in the Cold
PUBLISHED: Thursday, December 15, 2016 05:22 PM EST
It's a common observation in fantasy football that we don't want to play a kicker in bad weather. But I wondered if it's the cold temperature or something else that we should be worried about. So I went to Pro Football Reference and dug around in the indices to gather data on the rate of made fie...

Desperation TE Plays
PUBLISHED: Friday, December 9, 2016 01:23 PM EST
Several years ago, I wrote an article on this topic. Right now many owners are struggling to find a fantasy playoffs replacement for an injured stud TE, with Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Reed both hurt, I thought I'd update my research. My goal is to use TE statistics through Week 13 to find like...

RB Matchups: Rushing or Receiving
PUBLISHED: Friday, December 2, 2016 01:37 PM EST
This week I wanted to look at running back matchups for the remaining (for most leagues) four weeks of the fantasy season through the lens. But I wanted to focus on whether upcoming defenses give up more points to RBs on the ground or through the air. And I wanted to use lots of colors.   The scor...

Once again, the topic of poor football games on Thursday has been a topic of discussion on the message boards. I addressed this back in 2012 when TNF was first a thing, but we've got several years of data now, so I thought I'd look at it again. And it's particularly topical this week with the most-T...

Many, if not all, of you are familiar with the idea of using Vegas odds – the over/under and spread – to identify games where a lot of fantasy production is expected. The thought process is that high-scoring games will have a lot of offensive TDs, and the yards needed to get those touchdowns, and th...

In most leagues, only about 12-14 D/ST’s are on rosters leaving owners with a palatable amount of options if they are in need of a defense. Streaming your defense based on opponent strength and expected game script can give fantasy owners untapped upside on their roster. (Author’s Note: This column...
