We are back for another installment of the #FridayFantasyFocus! Last week's segment on Curtis Samuel not only helped me gain a clearer perspective of how to approach him in upcoming fantasy drafts, bu...
Can one simple trick earn your Fantasy Defense an extra point? Yeah, you know it's not exactly like that. But a little bit. If you've been here all off-season, you know I've written quite a bit about ...
Similar to yesterday's exercise in vacated targets from the previous season, finding which teams have unaccounted for carries can help us unearth some potential fantasy goldmines. Outside of major coa...
How many NFL coaches typically use a fantasy-relevant receiving back? This is important because of two trends in fantasy football. First, the growth in the fantasy value of "receiving backs." Second, ...
An annual fruitful exercise, finding where teams have lost targets from the year prior can be the skeleton key to finding fantasy value in the upcoming season. Outside of major coaching changes in off...
Welcome to the inaugural installment of the #FridayFantasyFocus! Each week I plan on zooming in on a particular player that has caught my interest for any number of reasons. Perhaps they've seen a sha...
Tyler Buecher's article on the red zone efficiency of running backs reminded me of some work I did last season but didn't publish. Here's a couple of quick charts (PPR scoring). While they are from 20...
A couple of weeks ago, I published my cheat sheet chart that translates WR targets into fantasy value. Today, I want to look at how many targets a typical team's WR corps sees: A #1 WR is the wideout...
Le'Veon Bell was a dominant fantasy force as a running back since being drafted in the 2nd round by the Steelers in 2013. From that season through 2018, he was in the Top 10 in FP/G (points-per-recept...
This is the third in a series on fantasy defenses. I started with an overview of trends in defensive fantasy scoring and last week looked at whether a defense's "base" alignment affected its fantasy s...
Last week I analyzed what fantasy production we can expect from A.J. Green this year in light of how many games he's missed the past three years. This week, I want to expand that analysis to all veter...
Picking up from last week's article on fantasy defensive scoring, this week I want to look at whether a defense's "base" alignment ("4-3" or "3-4") affects its fantasy scoring. A quick primer on metho...
A.J. Green has now missed substantial time in two of the last three years, playing just 35 games in that time. He'll be 31 when the season starts. Is his body starting to break-down? Many years ago (2...
This off-season I want to look at fantasy scoring by Team Defenses. Some of the issues I want to look at are the impact on Tm D fantasy points of: changing head coaches and defensive coordinators; hav...
Kickers averaged 10.8 FP in the Championship Round. The system projected all four kickers as Starts and all scored 7 FP or better, so that's pretty good: As a reminder, the table shows the Average FP...
So far this offseason, I've reviewed QB and RB fantasy performance in 2018 after adjusting for their strength of schedule (SoS) in standard formats. In this article, I'm going to apply the same method...
Strength of Schedule Adjusted RB Scores for 2018 Earlier, I reviewed QB fantasy performance in 2018 after adjusting for their strength of schedule (SoS) in standard formats. In this article, I'm going...
Every year, after the season ends, I look back at player performance (in fantasy points) adjusted by factoring in their strength of schedule (SoS). I want to strip out the effects of difficult or easy...
Last year I wrote on article about the drop in fantasy scoring in 2017. The summary points from that article: Non-QB fantasy scoring was down almost 4.4 FP/G per team from 2016 to 2017. It wasn't just...
Kickers averaged 8.0 FP in the Divisional Round. The system had good results if you compare the Starts (10.0 FP and all wins or ties) to the other categories. The big miss for the system was on the Ma...

Last week I did an analysis of running back attrition in 2018.  This week I'll play the same methods to WRs.  If you read last week's article, skim down to the chart.  The next few paragraphs explain ...
Football is often compared to war.  Personally, I think that's overdone, but the constant toll on bodies on the NFL is somewhat analogous to a war of attrition.  As the season winds down, I want to lo...
A couple of years back, I did an analysis of what available-on-waivers TEs you should grab if your regular TE got hurt heading into Weeks 14-16. I defined "available" as TEs ranked outside the Top 15 ...
