In this 2020 NFL Best Ball Review, Michael Dubner uses Functional Fantasy Points to expose the WRs who contributed the fewest fantasy football points to starting rosters. 

Last offseason I debuted the concept of Functional Fantasy Points (FFP), which are the fantasy points a player scores above baseline at their position calculated on a weekly basis. Essentially, FFP measures the number of points a player adds to starting lineups.

In this 2020 Best Ball Review, we’ll be taking a look at the WRs who scored the fewest Functional Fantasy Points. WRs with the lowest FFP-to-PPR ratio had their fantasy points largely contributing to baseline scoring production, with few points trickling into starting lineups or adding value to rosters.

The Empty Calorie Fantasy Scorers Archetype – Larry Fitzgerald and Danny Amendola

Nice Hands Larry and Dusty Danny are the archetypes of empty calorie fantasy points. They embody that feeling when you look back at end-of-season fantasy production are are shocked by how high they finish relative to the value they actually contributed to rosters.

Despite scoring more than 100 PPR fantasy points in 2020, Fitzgerald and Amendola contributed fewer than 3.5 fantasy points above starting roster expectations throughout the entire season.

Using the Weekly Stat Explorer chart from the RotoViz Player Stat Explorer, we can see that while Amendola consistently scored >7.5 fantasy points, the lack of ceiling performances limited his ability to contribute to starting lineups. You aren’t building fantasy muscle with these empty calorie carbs.
