Fantasy Points Matchups - Week 16
by Clayton Gray
December 18th, 2012

Each week, we will provide 3 items for each NFL team:

  1. Each team's average Fantasy Points Scored thus far in the season.
  2. Each team's opponent's Fantasy Points Allowed (compared to their opponent's average Fantasy Points Scored) thus far in the season. If this value is positive, that team allows more fantasy points at that position. If this value is negative, that team allows fewer fantasy points at that position.
  3. Each team's Modified Fantasy Points production for the week (found by comparing FP Scored with the FP Allowed). In short, if a team is playing a good defense, they'll likely score less at that position (and vice versa).
