A few days ago, I provided a quick overview on the impact that the #SFBX scoring system has for historical finishes. Additionally, I converted Dave Caban’s fantastic projections for anyone looking to gain an edge in their #SFBX leagues. If you’re looking to play around with the data, I urge you to check out the new Scott Fish Bowl Points Explorer tool. However, I have come here to chew bubblegum and provide my thoughts on #SFBX strategy. And I’m all out of bubblegum.
Refresher on Points Per First Down Scoring
For starters, it’s important to note that first downs are simply a function of raw volume. The more volume a player sees, the more likely they are to rack up first downs. Targets and touches are the lifeblood of fantasy scoring, and it should come as no surprise that the skill players who lead all #SFBX scorers also handle a significant chunk of their team’s volume. I’ve found that QB, WR, and TE appear to be the “stickiest” positions, as established veteran players continuously finish in the top-36. Meanwhile, RB sees a bit more turnover and is the shallowest of the three positions.
