Scott Fish Bowl Strategy: When To Draft Your #SFBX QB1 and When to Go Zero RB

A few days ago, I provided a quick overview on the impact that the #SFBX scoring system has for historical finishes. Additionally, I converted Dave Caban’s fantastic projections for anyone looking to gain an edge in their #SFBX leagues. If you’re looking to play around with the data, I urge you to check out the new Scott Fish Bowl Points Explorer tool. However, I have come here to chew bubblegum and provide my thoughts on #SFBX strategy. And I’m all out of bubblegum. Refresher on Points Per First Down Scoring For starters, it’s important to note that first downs are simply…...

Scott Fish Bowl: #SFBX Projections and Historical Scoring

We are less than two weeks from the kickoff of the 2020 Scott Fish Bowl (#SFBX)! The scoring format is largely unchanged from #SFB8 and includes a points-per-first-down scoring component and a points-per-reception component.   The biggest scoring change for this season is at the quarterback spot. However, for those of you who are new to the Scott Fish Bowl/points per first down (PP1D) formats, here’s a quick primer. Chasing Volume The PP1D format appears to offer a more nuanced scoring alternative to the PPR format. Given that the fantasy output for wide receivers, running backs, and tight ends can…...

Fire Walk With Me: Deconstructing The Early Rounds of the RotoViz Staff Best Ball League

“Through the darkness of future past, the magician longs to see. One chants out between two worlds … fire walk with me!” – Mike It may not be as exciting or interesting as Twin Peaks, but the first RotoViz Staff best ball league of the off-season is underway! I’ll do my best to look at this draft from every direction imaginable, including an explanation of player selection from the drafters, draft strategy, pick value, and more. The draft follows traditional MFL10 scoring rules and features some of the sharpest RotoViz staffers.1 Round 1 1.01 John Lapinski – Christian McCaffrey 1.02…...

Is Clyde Edwards-Helaire The Rookie 1.01?

Clyde Edwards-Helaire was drafted 32nd overall by the Kansas City Chiefs and was the first running back selected in the 2020 NFL Draft. Originally, Edwards-Helaire graded out as potentially the next Aaron Jones in the RB Prospect Lab, but his updated comps provide even more reasons for optimism. Dalvin Cook is a very interesting comparable for Edwards-Helaire, given that both players tested quite poorly, but were productive RBs. I’m skeptical that Edwards-Helaire could be either Derrick Henry or Mark Ingram in the NFL, so let’s take a look at his prospect profile before examining his team fit…....

Opportunity Scores: The Top Rookie Wide Receiver Landing Spots

A few years ago, RotoViz OG Kevin Cole created a formula for determining which teams were the best landing spots for rookie wide receivers. In fantasy and real football, performance is a function of opportunity. Whether the opportunity was created through talent, draft position, or lack of competition, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is raw opportunity because targets are the lifeblood of fantasy scoring. Kevin’s formula attempts to parse the relationship between quarterback and receiver average draft position (ADP). A higher drafted QB will presumably throw for more yards and touchdowns than one with a lower ADP. Receivers are the ones who…...

Is Clyde Edwards-Helaire a Three-Down Bell Cow? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

Although not considered to be among the elite tier of running back prospects, Clyde Edwards-Helaire is sure to garner some hype after his recent performance in the National Championship game. Let’s see how his profile stacks up compared to the other running backs in this draft class. Past Production Although Edwards-Helaire played in all 13 games for LSU as a true freshman, he was behind Derrius Guice on the depth chart. Edwards-Helaire primarily played special teams in his first year at LSU, returning 13 kicks for 247 yards. As a sophomore, Edwards-Helaire earned a bigger role in LSU’s ground game…....

Should Tyler Johnson Have Declared Last Year? A 2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile

On December 26, the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on the Auburn Tigers in the Outback Bowl. Although 6-foot-2-inch, 200-pound wide receiver Tyler Johnson could’ve declared early last season, he opted to prioritize earning his undergraduate degree over leaving early for the NFL. Despite opting to stay an extra year in school, Johnson has a very intriguing prospect profile. Despite the questionable quarterback play at Minnesota, Johnson broke out in his sophomore year. Johnson followed up with a strong junior year, posting a 0.49 Dominator Rating…....
