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 receiving FP/G: rushing FP/G was down 0.9 points per team in 2017.
- But it was MOSTLY receiving FP/G: a drop of 3.4 points per team.
- RB scoring was up 0.5 FP/G from 2016.
- Tight end FP/G was off 0.6 points in 2017.
- WR scoring league-wide was down 4.2 FP/G per team in 2017; 0.3 points of that was due to a drop in rushing scoring by wideouts, the rest was a drop in points from receiving.
- Six teams saw their WRs increase around 4-8 FP/G in scoring
- Twelve teams had a decline in WR scoring of around 4-8 FP/G.
- Six more teams had a double-digit fall in WR FP/G: those teams accounted for about two-thirds of the total drop.
I also said: It's possible in five years we'll see 2015 as an inflection point when defenses began to gain on offenses and fantasy scoring started a long-term decline. But right no...
