RotoViz Tutorials: The 2020 Draft Dashboard

The 2020 version of the Draft Dashboard was released yesterday. If you haven’t used the tool before, it’s a drafting tool that helps to keep all of the pertinent information in a draft organized and summarized in a way that facilitates efficient and confident decision making. The tool centers on using RotoViz tiers to track the quality of available players while at the same timing considering league specific settings, and the makeup of other teams in the draft to guide a user’s drafting process. The tool allows for leagues of varying sizes, and roster settings can be customized with user…...

2020 RotoViz Projections Have Arrived – Quick Observations and An Overview of the Process

After a month and a half of slogging through data, evaluating depth charts, making tweaks, and seeking feedback from other members of the team, my opening 2020 projections are done! Building a set of well-reasoned fantasy football projections is a time-consuming process but one that I’ve come to appreciate. It’s a key piece of my annual offseason preparation as it helps me to better understand a player’s range of outcomes, the key inputs that will shape his season, and the portion of his offense that he could realistically control. Allocating market shares across an offense can be sobering and highlights…...

2020 Historical Distribution Scores: Why Range of Outcome Distributions Matter and You’re Probably Thinking About Upside Incorrectly

Teams that win fantasy championships have one, often multiple, player(s) that significantly outperform ADP. Conservatism rarely pushes teams to the top of their leagues’ standings. In fact, it often works against them, anchoring them to the middle of the pack. This isn’t a new idea and we often talk about upside on the site. Historically, we’ve offered a number of tools that provide snapshots of a player’s low and high-end outcomes. Over the last couple of years, we’ve started to include visualizations, outlining a player’s entire distribution, but I don’t believe that I’ve spent enough time championing the importance of…...

2020 Ranges of Outcomes: Using Historical Data to Predict and Visualize 2020 Player Performance

The RotoViz Team recently released an updated version of our Range of Outcomes App. This tool helps users to better understand a player’s realistic range of outcomes for the coming season. In this article, Dave Caban overviews the process of building the tool and interpreting its results. Austin Ekeler was awesome in 2019. He finished as an RB1 in seven weeks and was the RB6 in PPR per game. Interestingly, Ekeler recorded just 132 rushing attempts, and his fantasy success came largely through the air. He turned 108 targets into 92 receptions, 993 yards, and eight touchdowns. Melvin Gordon didn’t…...

2020 WR Strength Of Schedule: A Simple Way to Find WR Targets in 2020 Best Ball Leagues

The NFL recently released the 2020 schedule, giving fantasy gamers the opportunity to find an edge in best ball leagues. With some help from the RotoViz Strength of Schedule Streaming App, let’s make sense of the gauntlet that each team will face and as an added bonus, identify a division whose WRs oppose significantly easy schedules. How Does the App Calculate Opponent Difficulty? As a reminder, our SoS App employs a different approach than you might be used to. Rankings are calculated on a positional basis and rather than use total points allowed to determine the difficulty of a team’s…...
