#Trendspotting: Week 14 - Footballguys

Examining player and team trends to identify valuable DFS options and start/sits in season-long leagues

Reader's Guide

As you read, you may run into some colors in the text. Blue text is a good matchup for that team's offensive players. Red text is a bad matchup. Some other key items are below:

  • All red/blue highlighting in tables is relative to the entire NFL, even when showing only a limited number of teams.
  • All reference to fantasy points assumes DraftKings scoring rules unless otherwise specified.
  • All stats reference the full 2018 season unless otherwise specified.
  • All fantasy points rankings in the matchup graphics are on a per-game basis to account for bye weeks.

This week, we'll discuss the following topics:

What Have You Done For Me Lately?

Last week, we paid close attention to what teams have done over the last five weeks. After all, what happened in Week 2 is less relevant than what has happened since the calendar flipped to November and December.

So in this section, we'll look at some teams who have been struggling defensively lately that might be surprising relative to how they started the season.

QBs vs. Oakland

Passing Rushing
Week Comp Att Yds TDs Int Car Yds TDs FPs Price FP/$
Patrick Mahomes II 13 23 38 295 4 0 9 52 0 33.0 $7,600 4.3
Lamar Jackson 12 14 25 178 1 2 11 71 1 22.2 $5,700 3.9
Josh Rosen 11 9 20 136 3 2 1 0 0 15.4 $4,800 3.2
Philip Rivers 10 18 26 223 2 1 1 1 0 16.0 $6,000 2.7
Nick Mullens 9 16 22 262 3 0 4 -3 0 22.2 $4,300 5.2
"FPs" = Fantasy Points
"Price" = DraftKings price for that week
"FP/$" = Fantasy Points scored divided by (player's price / 1,000)
For instance, if a player with a $5,000 price scores 20 fantasy points, the formula is 20/(5,000/1,000). That player's FP/$ would be 4.0 (20/5.0).
