Box Score Scout Player Comparisons: Second-Round 2019 NFL Draft

  After exploring the Box Score Scout’s player comparisons for first-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft last week, we’ll do the same for fantasy football relevant players drafted in the second round. The media’s bold player comparisons for first-round NFL Draft picks are generally acceptable, since first-round picks are usually high quality prospects. However, as we get into Day 2 of the NFL Draft, the outlandish player comparisons become more comedic. Michael Dubner leverages the RotoViz Box Score Scout’s player comparison tool to generate rational, objective SimScore player comparisons that provides a more fair representation of a player’s range…...

Box Score Scout: 2019 NFL Draft First-Round Player Comparisons

  February to April is ruled by Draft Twitter. Countless hot takes, I’m right/you’re wrong, and no middle ground. As always, there were plenty of surprising draft picks, which certainly affects fantasy football value. While the media oftentimes uses the best case scenario for player comparisons, the RotoViz Box Score Scout has an NFL player comparison tool that provides rational, objective SimScore comparisons. Now that the NFL Draft has passed, the Box Score Scout player comparison app is able to account for Draft Pick in its algorithm, thus further improving its accuracy. Michael Dubner uses the Box Score Scout to…...

The Happy Medium: Roster Five QBs and TEs in DRAFT Best Ball

The RotoViz DRAFT Roster Construction Tool allows us to analyze the win rates of specific roster constructions. In the earlier installments of the DRAFT NFL Best Ball Roster Construction Guide, we explored the win rates of teams that drafted six QBs and TEs as well as teams that limited themselves to four onesie positions. Here we will explore the win rates for teams that drafted a combination of five QBs and TEs. We will do so using Shawn Siegele’s optimal windows for drafting QBs and TEs: 2-QB (and 3-QB) Window: QB1 in Rounds 6-11; QB2 in Rounds 8-12 (QB3 in Rounds…...

Limit the Onesie Positions in DRAFT Best Ball Leagues

In the second installment of the DRAFT NFL Best Ball Roster Construction Guide, Michael Dubner finds a structural advantage using the 2-QB, 2-TE draft strategy. In my previous article, we found the one instance where the 3-QB, 3-TE Roster construction may provide a structural edge in DRAFT Best Ball leagues. Now that we’ve explored the roster construction that dedicates six spots to the onesie positions, we’ll now explore the opposite end of the spectrum, and see if we gain an edge by only dedicating four roster spots to the onesie positions with 2-QBs and 2-TEs. RotoViz legend Shawn Siegele has recently looked at BestBall10s…...

Should We Ever Roster Six QBs and TEs in DRAFT NFL Best Ball Leagues?

Quarterbacks and tight ends are often overlooked in NFL Best Ball drafts, but Michael Dubner uses the RotoViz DRAFT Roster Construction Explorer to find a structural edge at these positions. Savvy season-long fantasy football drafters have routinely gained an edge using the Late Round Quarterback strategy, and owners are also realizing that elite Tight Ends provide a league-tilting advantage at the position. Although many think they have figured out the QB and TE positions in season-long leagues, do these season-long draft strategies still apply to DRAFT Best Ball leagues? Founder of the Zero-RB movement, Shawn Siegele’s RotoViz Best Ball Workshop series has explored optimal roster constructions for QB and TE in BestBall10s. Siegele’s…...
