Plays of the Day – NBA DFS Roundup for Sunday, December 6th

This Sunday slate is an interesting one as we have just five games, four of which have a late start. Even more interesting is that only one game has a line under 5.5 points. That means we have some big projected scores to target and some smaller scores to find contrarian plays in. As a reminder, RotoViz provides you with the necessary resources to succeed in NBA DFS with tools like the NBA Game Splits App and Daily Fantasy Finder, the On the Daily Podcast, and, of course, articles like this. Let’s get to the Sunday picks! POINT GUARDS Reggie Jackson, Pistons ($7,900 – FD; $7,700…...

Plays of the Day – NBA DFS Roundup for Sunday, November 29th

Welcome to another lazy Sunday full of football, food, beer, and yes there’s some basketball too! Today we have six games starting at 6 p.m. or later so I’ll be focusing on those games. I suggest you get in on the action seeing as the NFL has provided us with yet another dull 4 p.m. slate of action. As a reminder, RotoViz provides you with the necessary resources to succeed in NBA DFS with tools like the NBA Game Splits App and Daily Fantasy Finder, the On the Daily Podcast, and, of course, articles like this.

Plays of the Day – NBA DFS Roundup for Sunday, November 22nd

Welcome to another lazy Sunday full of football, food, beer, and yes there’s basketball too! Everyone is always complaining about that lull in the action between when the afternoon NFL games end and the Sunday Night football games begin. Well, there’s some live NBA action during that lull so I suggest you get in on the action. Here at RotoViz we provide you with the necessary tools to succeed in NBA DFS with tools like the NBA Game Splits App and Daily Fantasy Finder, the On the Daily Podcast, and, of course, articles like this.

Efficiency vs. Opportunity: Mid-Season Update

If you read my work this preseason at RotoViz you’ll remember a series of posts where I charted each player’s opportunity and efficiency from 2014 on a quadrant1. The idea was simple: I wanted to be able to easily visualize which players were the most effective at scoring fantasy points. Now that the football season is halfway through2, it’s time to hit “refresh” on the charts and see how the landscape has changed. I’m going to pack all four positions into one article so buckle up and enjoy the ride. If you want to familiarize yourself with my preseason work you…...

Efficiency vs. Opportunity: Visualizing The TE Position

We finally made it to the fourth — and final1 — article in this visually stimulating efficiency vs. opportunity journey. Today, I’m focusing on the tight end position — you know, the position otherwise known as Rob Gronkowski and then the rest of “the guys.” Never before have we seen so much talent and athleticism at the position and I, for one, am excited to watch how it unfolds. So take a look at my plotted TEs to see where your favorite landed. There are plenty of intriguing options to talk about so let’s get to it. Efficiency vs. Opportunity Everything you…...

Efficiency vs. Opportunity: Visualizing The WR Position

Welcome to the third installment of my efficiency versus opportunity series. If you’re new to the whole thing please go check out my work on quarterbacks and running backs. Today, we focus on wide receivers. Receivers can come in different sizes and skill sets, which introduces many different ways for them to amass fantasy points. You can have the big-play, Torrey Smith-type who only needs the one catch to be worth your while. On the other hand, you can have the possession receiving, Julian Edelman-type that lives on short-range routes and needs eight-plus targets per game to have value. Using my visual method, I plotted…...

Efficiency vs. Opportunity: Visualizing The RB Position

Fantasy football is all about finding that next big value and there’s no position more volatile at the top end than running backs. Every year there’s an Arian Foster, C.J. Anderson, Justin Forsett, or Knowshon Moreno. Finding these values in fantasy football player is like getting your hands on the Holy Grail. I took my visualization skills (i.e., I just like making charts) and took a stab at which running backs could be poised for a big or disappointing year. Efficiency vs. Opportunity For a quick primer on how I measure efficiency and opportunity you can read my post on visualizing the quarterback…...

Efficiency vs. Opportunity: Visualizing The QB Position

  Finding values in fantasy football player is like getting your hands on the Holy Grail. Every offseason there are literally thousands and thousands of articles written about who’s a good value and who’s a bad value — and I’m sure RotoViz is responsible for 35 percent of them. These are just facts. So what the hell, let me throw my hat in the ring. I’m a very visual person so my “twist” on valuing players will come in chart form. Measuring Opportunity & Efficiency There are many ways to quantify opportunity — you can either look at targets as a whole or you…...

Who Throws A Sexy Deep Ball?

A little over a week ago I dug into a mound of stats – most of them courtesy of our colleagues at Pro Football Focus – and when I came out on the other side, no I didn’t find myself in China, but with an interesting stat that I so boringly named Catchable Pass Rate. That article showed you how quarterbacks deliver the football to all parts of the field, but we’re here today to focus on the most exciting part of the field — 20+ yards away from the line of scrimmage. The stats don’t lie — every time there’s…...
