Nearing the End
If you're still reading this and playing season-long fantasy football, congratulations on your success. Go get that championship! If you're down to DFS only, hopefully the advice below helps you win some holiday cash. Regardless, as we near the end of the season, I wanted to thank you all for reading. That's especially true to those who have been along for the ride all season.
We'll have one more column next week, but with this being the final week of "traditional" fantasy football, the thank you felt more appropriate here.
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.
This week, we'll discuss the following topics:
Strengths vs. Weaknesses
Here, we'll look at how teams gain yards vs. how their opposing defense allows yards. The goal is to average the ratios of yardage allowed in order to identify which passing and rushing attacks should fare best this week.
|Offensive Team||PaYd%||Rank||Defensive Team||PaYd%||Rank||Avg. %|
|Pittsburgh Steelers||76.9%||1||New Orleans Saints||76.9%||32||76.9%|
|Atlanta Falcons||76.1%||3||Carolina Panthers||71.1%||28||73.6%|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||76.5%||2||Dallas Cowboys||70.6%||26||73.6%|
|Philadelphia Eagles||72.1%||6||Houston Texans||74.5%||31||73.3%|
|Kansas City Chiefs||73.2%||5||Seattle Seahawks||68.8%||21||71.0%|
|New York Giants||70.7%||10||Indianapolis Colts||69.7%||24||70.2%|
|Minnesota Vikings||73.5%||4||Detroit Lions||66.7%||14||70.1%|
|Oakland Raiders||71.2%||9||Denver Broncos||68.2%||18||69.7%|
"PaYd%" = the percentage of total yards gained or allowed via passing yardage
"Rank" = where that percentage ranks (1 is highest for offenses to signal the best; 32 is highest for defenses to signal the worst)
