The Draft Dashboard: A Live Tutorial

If you haven’t started mock drafting yet, the time to do so is now! Every season has its own ADP nuances and the quicker that you learn them, understand how your drafts will flow, and practice reacting when your target gets sniped, the better off you’ll be…....

2018 Historical Projections: TE Volatility Scores

Within the Stat Explorer, I included historical projections. These projections use a player’s stat line from 2017 to identify players that recorded similar seasons in years past.1 By looking at the performance of these comparable players, in the season subsequent to their matching season, we can build a range of outcomes that will help us understand what we can reasonably expect from a player in the coming season. In cases such David Johnson’s, where a player missed the majority of the season, I used data from 2016.  (back) In cases such David Johnson’s, where a player missed the majority of the season, I used data from 2016…....

Man vs. Machine:Taking on the Draft Dashboard from Pick 10

In this series, RotoViz writers will be using the Draft Dashboard, the flagship tool of the FFDRAFTPREP Package, to practice approaching 2018 drafts. Twelve authors will be participating and each will be mock-drafting, from a different starting position, using the tool. The aim of this series is to outline the strategies employed by our writers, the information they are using to inform their decisions, and to obtain an understanding of how draft slot plays a role in the development of their approaches. At the end of each mock, the author will compare their team to those drafted by the computer and…...

The Points Per Target Danger Zone: More Wide Receivers Due for Regression

In a previous post, we discussed the “PPT Danger Zone” and established that points per target (PPT) is not a sticky stat. The relationship between a wide receiver’s PPT in year N has little correlation with his PPT in year N+1. Simply put, we can’t count on a player’s efficiency in terms of PPT carrying from season to season…....

Draft Dashboard Tutorials

With the Scott Fish Bowl in full swing, draft season is officially here! That means it’s time to start mock drafting and getting familiar with Draft Dashboard. If you invest a little bit of time into learning how to use it, equip it for your league specifics, and get familiar with the interface, it will quickly become (at least I hope) one of your most used resources…....
