Daily Fantasy NBA: Adjusted FP Allowed Per 36

I wrote an article last week about how looking at fantasy points allowed (or DvP) in DFS NFL is not very effective at determining optimal matchups, mostly because of strength of schedule, luck, and injury impact can skew the results.

The Patriots are at the one yard line. Running play to Blount… he’s stopped for no gain. Next play looks again like a running play to Blount… but wait!

Fantasy stats are not that correlated to success in the NBA. Bad players who chuck up a ton of shots and dominate the ball will probably get a lot of points and assists. Big men standing under the rim will get a lot of rebounds, even if they aren’t very good at rebounding. Consequently, there […]

NFL Team Pass/Run Tendencies Week 13

Each week, our NFL Sportsbook tool projects run and pass percentages of each team based on scoring margin adjusted data from 2015. I think the tool does a pretty good job making predictions on team pass and run tendencies based on historical data. But because of injuries and team makeup changes, the data doesn’t always […]

DFS NFL: The Subtle Science Of Predicting Field Goals

Some people do not like playing FanDuel NFL games because they find picking a kicker to be pointless. A lot of people feel picking a kicker is mostly a crapshoot, and get frustrated when a kicker goes off for 6 or 7 field goals and they didn’t have a piece. The truth is field goal […]

NFL Spread Picks Week 11

Part of individual player performance depends on team performance. The more successful a team’s offense is, the more successful we should expect their individual players to be. With that said, I think it’s important for a daily fantasy player to supplement sportsbook lines with their own objective evaluation of how they see each team performing. Here are […]
