I’m like a broken record when it comes to individual defensive players.
I don’t put a ton of time into these projections. I’m not up on injuries or changes in playing time except in the case of players on my rosters.
Our projection machine makes them so we publish them.
We take the opposing teams rushes and receptions to get potential tackles. We take incompletions and generously turn them into pass deflections. Then we take interception and fumbles numbers too. We distribute all of those numbers to defensive players based on how the numbers have been distributed so far this season.
It’s not perfect, but it’s pretty good. And better than some rankings out there.
