If you’re an NBA fan, you’re probably familiar with Zach Lowe’s work. If not, here’s the relevant info: Every Friday, Lowe writes an article about five NBA things he liked from the week and five things he didn’t. It’s consistently one of the best columns in sports, and it’s hugely helpful for catching up on what happened across the league without having to pay attention to every single game.
That’s the goal (maybe I should say pipe dream because Lowe’s work is truly fantastic) with this series. Except instead of talking about NBA games, we’ll discuss relevant stats and events from the most recent NFL weekend. And instead of me talking about what I liked and didn’t like (no one would care about that), it’ll simply be a breakdown of the most important and under-the-radar numbers from each week.
There’s a lot of fantasy football content out there. You can go to almost any website and find out which players you need to pick up, who you should target in trades, and who’s going to win you millions in DFS. That’s extremely important – and using RotoViz for that content will give you a massive edge in your leagues – but you can only read about why you need to add Nyheim Hines so many times.
In this series, we’ll analyze the most actionable takeaways from the week in a concise, numbers-filled format. Let’s get to it.
