Fantasy Football Rankings Week 3 All in One

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 3 All in One

I present Fantasy Football Rankings Week 3 All in One edition including looking at PPR/Half PPR/Non-PPR scoring environments.  Additionally, this report provides the raw material for my AIO rankings. My process uses the Vegas view to visualize the landscape of each game. (See below).

The concept is high scoring game should have more passing yards and catches along with touch-downs. High scoring game benefit pass-catching RBs, TE, and WRs. On the other hand, the low scoring game can be a rushing RB bonanza.

Remember to view last weeks games in terms of scoring and in DFS look for players going from one extreme to another this week. The public will be chasing points.


Vegas Landscapes for Week 3

We have a nice number of High scoring games so it will be a good week for passing and pass-catchers. I have included the predicted scores as well to further focus on the teams with nice game scripts.

I would suggest the use of players from the High scoring games in lineups and DFS. The interesting possibility is that deeper WRs etc have a better chance of doing well in these type of games. Caution for players in the lower scoring games.

Defense Against the Position (DAPs)

The second data platform for my lineups and DFS plays are shown below. These are the project DAPs each team will face in the week 3 games.  Extremes are always of strategic uses. Locating easy defenses to scoring on is a good thing!

I have placed the DAPs in the context of the Vegas scoring predictions of High, Average, and Low scoring. PPR plays will be abundant in the High scoring games. The DAPs are shown below and include:

  • Opponent Run/Pass Defense (Easy Both, Easy Pass, Easy Run, Balance, and Tough on both)
  • Vegas Scoring (High, Average, and Low)
  • RB DAPs (Easy – Blue colorization vs Tough Red Colorization)
  • TE DAPs (Easy – Green colorization vs Tough Red Colorization)
  • WR DAPs(Easy – Blue colorization vs Tough Red Colorization)

For Example ATL vs IND game. We expect high scoring of 6 TDs or so.

ATL faces a balanced DEF from IND (no advantages). The DAPs favor Hooper (+3.8 TE DAPs)

IND gets an easy defense game for both running and passing. Favors Mack at +4.5 DAPs and the WRs at +3.8. Note caution on the IND TEs vs -1.2 TE DAPs.

I would use these viewpoints to tie-break tough choices and analyze deep DFS gambles.

Uncertainty (UNC) Week 3 Team Level

In decisions under uncertainty, the player needs to know where chaos exists in the metrics.  Like a minefield, it best to know where the danger is. You may not know the unknown unknowns but you can be cautious. These uncertainty metrics signal danger for all to consider.

WEEK 3 Low UNC Teams are NE, DAL, PIT, LAC, IND, ATL, and HOU. This does not mean victory it points out the “trust” of these team’s rankings.

On the other hand, the High UNC teams will be those teams that metrics can be “soft” and not true. These team names are highlighted below in red colorization.

Week 3 TEAM Level

My Rankings (PPR. HALF PPR and Non-PPR) are guides and not chiseled in stone! Use them in that light. I take my opinions and set them on a scale of 100 (best) to 0 (lowest). I colorized these metrics to catch your attention of the extreme players (highs or lows). The average player should hit near the 50 levels.

I think it is too easy to take a list with numbers and names and go from there. Thus, I go into the team context first. You must “see” all players within the system they are in. Use the teams AIO rankings with the Vegas and DAPs for the full experience.

Fantasy Football Rankings Week 3 All in One

I list the Non-PPR, Half PPR and PPR rankings (scaled from 100 to 0) of each player and have sorted by the PPR rankings.

I also added a hidden metric that I use called the PPR Special. This highlights players who are PPR specific plays. For example, James White gets a high +14 of the PPR Special Player Scaled! That is very high and indicates a “force him” into your lineups.  The anti-PPR player is Derrick Henry at a -6.5 PPR special metrics. Force him into Non-PPR league lineups.
