The amount of data available within the RotoViz database is incredibly immense. One of my favorites, the Range of Outcomes App, uses historical data to predict and visualize player performance for this upcoming season.
I will highlight three wide receivers who have a significant disparity between where the Range of Outcomes App (ROO) has them slotted and where their respective ADP stands as of today. The fantasy community tends to do a decent job of valuing players so that these differences will be fun.
Cooper Kupp – ROO WR3
This one immediately jumped off the screen. With a current Best Ball ADP of WR17, it’s worth digging into some potential reasons for the disparity. In this third season, Cooper Kupp erupted and finished as the WR4 on the back of 134 targets, 94 receptions, over 1,100 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. Recovered from his torn ACL that ended his 2018 campaign after eight games, Kupp asserted himself as one of the dominant players at his position.
While the result was spectacular, it was a tale of two seasons for Kupp. He averaged more than 10 targets and almost 100 receiving yards per game over the first half of the season. Despite being buoyed by substantial touchdown numbers, the second half saw a significant decrease in targets, yards, and overall fantasy production.
