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 play a part in our rankings.
Next, I went to fantasy points allowed charts over at FFtoday.com and added them to the list. So teams whose FFPG against conflict with DVOA have been removed from the ranking.
As I mentioned last week, these matchups are essentially boom or bust start/sit rankings.
