2019 Fantasy Football Defense Against the Position Part 2

2019 Fantasy Football Defense Against the Position Part 2 – By John Bush

My DAP Positional Summations of the Entire League

  • Quarterbacks face a tougher than average early season (-5 ish DAPs)
  • Quarterbacks do better after week 8 into the playoffs (-1.35 DAPs)
  • Running Backs face a tough season into week 13 (-5.4 DAPs)
  • Your Running Backs during the Playoffs will have an improved landscape of -2.7 DAPs
  • Tight Ends seem to have a very tough entire season especially early (-25.1 DAPs) but have an improved tough playoffs os -10.2 DAPs.
  • Wide Receivers have a slightly rough early season at -3.6 DAPs but get an easy time in weeks 8 to 13 at +6 DAPs and their playoffs are just fine a+0.6 DAPs

Suggested Reactions to these Points

  1. Ride your top QBs into the playoffs even with a below average QB landscape in the first 7 weeks. 
  2. RBs, come through in the playoffs. If you see newer Rookie or Deeper RBs coming on, I suggest acquire them for the playoffs. 
  3. Given what I see in the TE DAPs, I am taking early TEs when I can. I am concerned about the later TEs on average. (Kelce, Kittle, Ertz, and Henry/Howard)
  4. Trade for early underperforming WRs before week 8 and collect into the playoffs

Team Level Positional DAP Metrics for Early/Late/Playoffs

I present each team’s weekly positional DAPs including Early/Late and Playoff Weekly Blocks. Green is easy vs Red is tough. The weekly opponent is listed by level of 2019 predicted defense ie BAL is tough vs ATL is easy etc. 

I use these DAPs for Different Purposes:

  1. Envision the journey for my potential draftable players  – tiebreaker or handcuff or bye week fill-in players. 
  2. In dynasty, trades use to find value in trades for 2019. 2 equal players but different DAPs in 2019 season. 
  3. The basis for early trades in redraft as some “give up” on players too soon. 
  4. Potential of players during the playoff weeks as a metric for decision-making in drafts
