A different method was used to put together this week’s matchups. The lists start with Football Outsiders’ excellent Defense-Adjusted Value Over Average. After comparing DVOA, yards per game and receptions per game and all of the multiple variants that can be made with those three statistics, it became clear DVOA was a statistic that should [...]

It’s always interesting to see how the players mesh when their fantasy points are stacked up against one another. This week we have seven running backs in the top-10 and no tight end. Julius Thomas tops the TE list and he comes in at 13th.
These matchups are based on yards allowed, according to Football Outsiders’ defense against receiver types chart. In some cases, the matchups are more reliable because they match up with FO’s Defense-adjusted Value Over Average statistic, which adds in a number of non-fantasy statistics, but is a good indicator about how a team focuses (or loses [...]
