Fantasy, in Theory: Flawed Metrics

Some measures of player quality are terrible, awful, no good, very bad. Other measures are worse.

Jeff Saturday was one of the best centers of his generation. An undrafted free agent, Saturday started a pair of games as a guard in his second year before earning the starting center job in year three.

Saturday would go on to start 186 out of a possible 192 games for Indianapolis over the next twelve years, serving as an anchor over one of the most consistently great teams in history, a team that won 12 or more gains an NFL-record seven straight years. Saturday snapped the ball to the league MVP in four different seasons, making five pro bowls along the way and twice being named a first-team All-Pro.

After 2011, Saturday's contract with the Colts was up and he signed with the Green Bay Packers in free agency. And in 2012, voters once again honored him as one of the best centers in the NFL, sending him to his sixth pro bowl. The biggest problem, of course, is that Saturday wasn't even the best center in Green Bay; the Packers benched him for the last two games of the season because of his poor play.
