Preseason Schedule Analysis
| North | South
It’s never easy for a person to admit their mistakes. It’s
even harder to do so in front of a national audience. But admitting
– and learning from – one’s mistakes is a vital
part to growing and becoming a better person and, for the purposes
of this four-part series of articles, a better fantasy prognosticator.
There are many fantasy “experts” that would not dare
do what I am about to do, which is look back at their projections
from late August or early September of last season and revisit
their triumphs as well as their regrets. (And yes, I was as shockingly
off on some of my projections just about as often as I was right
on the mark.) But I believe this is a useful exercise for all
parties involved and perhaps will give even more credence to my
belief in the PSAs. At the very least, it should allow each of
us to see just how much faith I should have in my ability to “predict
the schedule” and how much trust I deserve from each of
you when I do so.
After much debate on how I should go about deciding whether or
not I projected a player accurately, I finally settled on the
system that I explain over the next few paragraphs. It didn’t
make much sense to stack up my 15-game forecasts against the player’s
actual 16-game numbers and with the number of teams that have
essentially taken Week 17 off recently (if not most of December),
it seemed prudent to measure each player on their points-per-game
average. The next step was deciding how to measure accuracy. Again,
a simple hit-miss system was too rigid, so I added two more categories
to analyze the accuracy of my projections.
Hit: my projection was within +/-
1 FPPG (fantasy point per game)
On-Target: my projection was within
+/- 1.1 and 3 FPPG
Off-Target: my projection was within
+/- 3.1 and 5 FPPG
Miss: my projection missed by more
than 5 FPPG
Before we dive into the heart of this walk down memory lane,
I want to explain two more areas I decided to address: 1) the
percentage listed next to the “hit”, “on-target”.
“off-target” and “miss” and 2) the names
listed after the percentage. The percentage is simply a reflection
of how much each of those four standards fit into the accuracy
“pie” while the names reflect the players who actually
fell into that category. (So, for example, New England ended up
with 12 greens out of a possible 22 – 11 PPR and 11 non-PPR
projections – so I ended up “hitting” on 54.5%
of my projections for the Patriots.) Finally, I will hand myself
a grade at the end of each “team report”, with weight
on that grade being given to the quality of player. For example,
a miss on a player like Tom Brady would send my grade down much
more than a miss on Ramses Barden. Conversely, a hit on Brady
would skyrocket my grade much more than a hit on Barden.

| Color Codes
Hits – (18.75%) Edwards; Evans
(non-PPR). The good news? I recorded more green this season (three)
with the Bills than I did last season (two). Unfortunately, two
of those three hits were courtesy of Edwards, who was benched after
Week 2 and released shortly thereafter. As any serious fantasy player
likely remembers, Ryan Fitzpatrick took the league by storm for
the next two months before Buffalo’s offense stalled over
the last third of the season. Evans remained the same inconsistent
fantasy player he has been for the majority of his career.
On-Target – (37.5%) Jackson,
Stupar; Evans (PPR); Parrish (non-PPR). Once Bills management
dealt Lynch and Spiller’s hamstring injury forced HC Chan
Gailey to turn to Jackson as his feature back, the Coe College
product gave his owners a taste of what he could do in more of
a full-time role. Buffalo hasn’t had a notable fantasy TE
in years, so scoring a couple blues on Stupar (or any other Bills’
TE) isn’t a huge deal.
Off-Target – (18.75%) Lynch;
Parrish (PPR). It wasn’t a matter of if, but when, the Bills
would trade one of the most talented third-string RBs any 4-12
team ever had. Seattle was always a likely destination for “Beast
Mode”, but predicting that eventuality in August 2010 would
have taken a crystal ball and some divine intervention. A wrist
injury ended Parrish’s season in early November, but prior
to that, he was emerging as Fitzpatrick’s second favorite
receiver. It’s notable that Fitzpatrick’s numbers
spiraled shortly after Parrish was finished for the season in
Misses – (25%) Spiller, Johnson.
With late preseason injuries to Jackson (hand) and Lynch (ankle)
paving the way for Spiller to pick up significant snaps in time
for Week 1, the rookie did next to nothing and spent the rest
of the season dealing with ball security issues. The talent is
there (Gailey suggests Spiller is very similar to Jamaal Charles),
but the second-year back is going to need to correct his fumbling
issues, learn to run inside and some bad luck to strike Jackson
in the near future in order to get another shot at proving Gailey
Not included – Fitzpatrick.
Much like Johnson, Fitzpatrick wasn’t on anyone’s
radar screen entering the season. After all, we were given very
little indication that Gailey would pull the plug on Edwards so
quickly after declaring him the winner of the Bills’ QB
Grade: D Unlike some of the
other players we will get into down the road (Randy Moss, Jerome
Harrison, etc.), Lynch seemed to be a good bet to get traded during
the season, so I will leave him in this review for grading purposes
even though it was obvious his value would increase when the Bills
dealt him. Spiller fooled most of us when he did absolutely nothing
with his full-time shot early in the season and Johnson came on
just about the same time Fitzpatrick emerged. My one saving grace
from this team projection was a couple of blues from Jackson but,
all things considered, this was a pretty weak forecasting effort
on my part.
Hits – (21.43%) Hartline; Fasano
(non-PPR). When projecting one-trick deep threats like Hartline,
a prognosticator is usually in good shape if he/she can come pretty
close on the number of receptions because touchdowns figure to be
few and far between (especially when he is the QB’s third
option most of the time) and a receiver’s YPC is going to
be right around 15. Fasano actually set new career highs in receptions
(39) and yards (528), but a lethargic Dolphins’ offense that
often settled for field goals didn’t give the TE much opportunity
in the red zone.
On-Target – (42.9%) Henne, Bess; Marshall and Fasano (both
PPR). Many folks – myself included – figured Henne
was bound to explode upon the fantasy scene last season with the
acquisition of Marshall. The only problem was that Marshall didn’t
free things up for Miami downfield and Henne wasn’t very
good the few times he did air it out (going 10-of-40 on passes
of 20+ yards). This, combined with the poor running game, turned
the Dolphins into a short-to-intermediate passing team. What is
clear is that Bess is Henne’s go-to man on third down (his
21 first-down catches on third down led the team and was fifth-best
in the league).
Off-Target – (21.43%) Brown; Marshall (non-PPR). I think
Brown surprised us all by playing 16 games for just the second
time in his career. I forecasted a small falloff from his wonderful
2009 season in which he averaged 15 FPPG through nine contests,
but it is fair to say the interior line play did him no favors.
While Marshall wasn’t too far behind Bess in terms of moving
the chains, he was charged with 11 drops (third-worst in the NFL).
A repeat of last year’s three-TD season seems unlikely,
but Marshall’s injury history and poor decision-making (to
put it mildly) makes him a risky proposition going forward, especially
for a 27-year-old who should just be entering his prime. The ex-Bronco
figures to remain a target monster for another few years, but
Miami will need to get better QB play and a more wide-open passing
attack if Marshall is to ever return to his 100-catch, 6-10 TD
Miss – (14.29%) Williams. I’ll admit I took a calculated
chance on Williams last season in that I projected Brown would
last roughly 11-12 games. Obviously, the final four games would
then give the well-rested then-32-year-old a few games at the
end of the season to boost his bottom line. Fortunately, very
few owners were counting on Ricky as a regular starting option
in fantasy – I had him listed as a high-upside RB3 –
so this red can be forgiven.
Grade: D+ I was in the ballpark
on just about every notable Dolphins’ fantasy player, but
Marshall and Brown greatly disappointed and Williams failed to
come anywhere close to my projection. So while my six blues and
three greens save me a bit, I deserve to take the heat a bit for
my optimistic forecasts of the temperamental Marshall, the plodding
Brown and the aging Williams.
– (54.5%) Brady, Taylor, Faulk, Welker, Tate, Crumpler.
Although he did it in a much different way than I expected (high
TDs, low INTs as opposed to a huge yardage total) with a much
different supporting cast than anyone could have imagined, Brady
actually surpassed my high expectations of him in 2010. As long
as he is healthy and his team remains committed to keeping him
clean and upright in pocket, Brady will continue posting elite
fantasy numbers. I’m not going to take a great deal of credit
for Taylor, Faulk or Crumpler because it wasn’t hard to
see injuries or role was going to play a big part at some point
in their final numbers. For someone who preached caution on Welker
last summer, I was pleased to discover I scored at least on hit
with him. It goes without saying that his quick recovery from
his ACL surgery was nothing short of amazing, but I just could
not see him repeating his 2007-09 numbers after such a devastating
knee injury and he proved me right.
On-Target – (9.1%) Morris, Hernandez (non-PPR). While New
England represented a goldmine for my fantasy forecasting skills
for the most part, one area I did not foresee was the contributions
of the rookie TEs. I was well aware of their talent, but after
years of wasting Ben Watson’s athleticism, it seemed odd
to me the Pats would utilize Rob Gronkowski or Hernandez properly
in the passing game. Beyond that, with Crumpler joining the team
as the unquestioned blocking TE and both rookies entering the
league as injury risks, the odds seemed long that one or both
would experience any degree of consistency in fantasy. Instead,
New England may have changed the way teams think about deploying
their TEs in that Gronkowski figures to remain the possession
receiver who should continue to excel in the end zone while Hernandez
may carve out a big-play, deep-threat niche for himself as the
years go on.
Off-Target – (13.6%) Morris, Hernandez (both PPR); Edelman
(non-PPR). Edelman was slowed by an ankle injury in the preseason,
which stymied any chance he had of capturing the WR3 early on
and a concussion soon followed his return to the field. By the
time injuries were no longer a concern, roster depth and a case
of the drops became his biggest roadblocks to playing time.
Misses – (22.7%) Maroney, Green-Ellis; Edelman (PPR). Maroney
didn’t play a single game for the Pats last season and bordered
on irrelevancy in fantasy drafts as it was last summer. Therefore,
my most egregious error was Green-Ellis. I grew tired of waiting
for HC Bill Belichick to turn to his most dependable RB as opposed
to waiting for Taylor and Morris to break down yet again.
Not included – Randy Moss, Danny Woodhead, Gronkowski.
Even though Moss was included in last year’s predictions,
I don’t seem to recall a single soul suggesting during the
preseason that he would be dealt after just four games, so I chose
not to include him in the grading process here. Woodhead wasn’t
even on the team to begin the season, so I’d be foolish
to include him in the grading process as well. And Gronk was reportedly
so far behind to start the season, it didn’t make sense
at the time (last summer) to include him in the projections.
Grade: A- The beauty of “spread-the-wealth”
teams like the Patriots is they give prognosticators like me more
opportunities to apply more green to charts like the one above
because more players will be involved. Perhaps I’ve softened
my grading from last year, but 12 greens (including important
ones like Brady and Welker) greatly outweigh the reds by a large
– (25%) Holmes, Keller. Through four games, Keller
was making me look like an absolute fool, but his fantasy usefulness
tanked once Holmes returned from suspension, which was what I
expected to happen when I put together my forecast for the TE
last summer. As it turned out, that’s exactly what happened.
After cruising to an 18.6 FPPG after a quarter of the season in
PPR leagues, Keller plummeted to 6.6 over the final 12 contests.
Interestingly, Holmes took about a month to work himself into
his new WR1 role following his four-game suspension to open 2010.
On-Target – (37.5%) Sanchez, McKnight, Tomlinson. With
Tomlinson receiving more work than just about anyone could have
imagined and Edwards filling in so well for Holmes early on, Sanchez
exceeded my most optimistic final projections (even if he was
horrifically inconsistent doing so). While it is conceivable that
Sanchez can eventually become a low-end QB1 in fantasy, it is
quite likely 2010 is about as good as owners can expect from him
as long as the running game and defense are the points of emphasis
for the Jets. In what figures to be the first of several times
I mention this: if you are going to trust plus-30-year-old RBs
for any length of time, do it in the first half of the season
and sell high after 6-7 games. Whether it is a case of an athlete
who has hit his limit in terms of career touches or simply a case
of a player losing another half-step in addition to the one he
loses after falling from his prime athletic years (27-29), backs
like Tomlinson and Thomas Jones could not come close to matching
their first-half production as the weather turned cold in 2010.
After seeing this same scenario play out with other older RBs
in recent years, I’m ready to suggest if owners are going
to trust older backs like LT and TJ, do so early and then get
out before the roof collapses.
Off-Target – (12.5%) Cotchery and Edwards (both non-PPR).
Sometimes, a team comes along and achieves success in a way that
defines logic. Last summer, the Jets were destined to be a run-first
offense centered on Greene; Edwards would act as the big-play
WR while Cotchery and Keller would serve as the possession receivers.
Tomlinson’s emergence and Cotchery’s herniated disk
made the receiver a non-factor in the short passing game while
Edwards enjoyed his best fantasy season since 2007 even though
he was one of the AFC’s leaders in passes not caught with
Misses – (25%) Greene; Cotchery and Edwards (both PPR).
I was one of the fortunate ones last year. Not only did I sour
on Greene as the preseason wore on, but I also did not endure
the agony of owning him at any point. Still, it is hard to believe
that Greene was insignificant for so much of 2010. Even the one
area he should have rewarded his owners – the red zone –
was a huge disappointment.
Grade: C The changing of
the guard we expected to happen last year (as in Tomlinson accepting
a third-down/change-of-pace role while Greene carried the load)
figures to take place this year, if we are to believe reports
coming out of New York. Regardless, that information doesn’t
help fantasy owners who were burned by Greene nor does it help
out my final grade. Nailing Keller and Holmes save my grade a
bit, but there are still too many yellows and reds on the rest
of the offense.
– (44.4%) Williams, Bryant, Witten; Jones (PPR);
Bennett (non-PPR). Most fantasy pundits knew Jones was in for
a bigger piece of the Cowboys’ backfield pie entering 2010.
Still, with the threat of a three-man RB committee, it is never
easy to determine just how much one runner will get, so coming
so close on Jones was a feather in my cap. It wasn’t all
that shocking Bryant burst on the scene, but more that he became
so dominant so quickly. Of course, his emergence basically coincided
with Romo’s season-ending injury and Jon Kitna’s insertion
under center. Witten was another proud double-dip for me because
many fantasy owners were not nearly as optimistic as I was about
his ability to have a huge year in the red zone.
On-Target – (27.8%) Choice; Bennett (PPR); Austin and Jones
(non-PPR). One day, Choice will eventually get his shot to make
the Cowboys pay for letting his talents go to waste as long as
they have. He may not be an elite talent, but he has been Dallas’
best all-around (and most durable) RB since he joined the team
Off-Target – (16.7%) Romo; Austin (PPR). To be fair, Romo
was coasting at 22.5 FPPG before getting injured early in Week
7 vs. the Giants, so my forecast was more on-target than off-target.
The biggest surprise was that Romo achieved his numbers in large
part because the running game was so pathetic (which led to a
high number of dropbacks and attempts) and not because it was
freeing up Austin, Bryant and Witten to go up against single coverage.
With Kitna at QB, Austin became an afterthought at times in the
Dallas offense. Considering Austin averaged 18.8 FPPG in PPR in
the five games Romo finished, I feel justified in giving myself
a pass for all three yellows.
Miss – (11.1%) Barber. Owners knew last summer that Barber
was walking a thin line given his competition for touches with
Jones and Choice. However, he did so little with the chances he
was given that Jones ended up carrying his load more often than
not. Ultimately, the offense that some had pegged as potentially
one of the greatest entering the season fell woefully short in
part because Barber gave the team nothing in short-yardage all
Not included – Kitna, Patrick Crayton.
Grade: A- I pretty much spelled
out my defense for Romo above, which directly ties in to my rationale
as to why half of Austin’s projection was yellow. In short,
Romo got hurt because a FB missed a block and Austin suffered
the most because of it in fantasy. Barber’s reds notwithstanding,
this team forecast was a very good one as I registered eight greens.
So while I’m not apt to reward myself with a high grade
when there are reds involved, it’s hard to not feel good
about nailing the majority of my projections on Dallas’
RBs, WRs and TEs.
– (25%) Manning, Ware; Beckum (non-PPR). With the
lone exception being the 2009 season, Manning has often impressed
and disappointed in the same season for most of his career. For
example, while his 2010 FPPG and passing TDs were a career-high
18.3 and 31, respectively, and his passing yardage surpassed the
4,000-yard mark for the second straight season, the younger Manning
threw a league-high 25 INTs. However, Manning has yet to miss
a start since taking over for Kurt Warner midway through the 2004
season and has finished as a low-end QB1 or top QB2 in 12-team
leagues every year since 2006. The point is that while Manning
may be consistently inconsistent as a fantasy player over the
course of the season, he is dependable and durable.
On-Target – (50%) Bradshaw, Smith, Barden, Boss; Beckum
(PPR); Jacobs (non-PPR). The hardest part of the Giants’
projections last summer was deciding how durable Bradshaw would
be. But with two missed games over the past three seasons, it
may be time to project 275-300 touches for the foreseeable future
(he recorded 323 last season). One has to wonder if the knee injury
Smith suffered late last season will only decrease his meager
10-11 YPC. If the reports of his recovery continue to remain positive,
then consider him the NFC version of Wes Welker. Like the Pats’
mighty mite, Smith is a hot commodity in PPR but usually a bit
overdrafted in non-PPR formats.
Off-Target – (20%) Nicks; Jacobs (PPR); Manningham (non-PPR).
Most of my hesitation in predicting huge things for Nicks last
summer had everything to do with the presence of Smith and nothing
to do with his talent. After all, Smith had just recorded the
first 100-catch season in team history. But alas, Nicks’
ability to create mismatches was apparent from Week 1 on. It would
have taken a bold fantasy owner to put the second-year WR in his/her
preseason top 10 at the position, but it goes to show that while
talent doesn’t always win the day, it sure doesn’t
hurt to gamble on it if everything else is in order (QB, scheme,
supporting cast, etc.).
Miss – (5%) Manningham (PPR). An occasional explosion from
a top deep threat like Manningham should be expected (as should
a missed game or two from Nicks or Smith). What is clear is that
while the Michigan alum is a reserve for the Giants, he is certainly
able to perform like a starter in fantasy when given the chances.
Grade: B While I managed
three blues and a yellow for my work on Jacobs and Bradshaw, a
closer look reveals that I was only -1.4 FPPG off on their combined
production in PPR and -0.8 off in non-PPR. And to be fair, Manningham’s
final FPPG skyrocketed in the final three games of the season
after Smith was lost for the season. Entering Week 15, the third-year
wideout was working at a 10.3 FPPG clip in PPR and 6.9 in non-PPR,
which makes my projections look much better than they actually
turned out. All things considered, I feel my work with Manning,
Bradshaw and Smith should mostly outweigh the off-targets and
misses I scored on Nicks and Manningham.
– (43.8%) Jackson, Avant, Cooper; Maclin (non-PPR).
While I tend to believe possession receivers are a bit easier
to forecast than deep threats (primarily due to consistent catches
and sometimes unpredictable YPC), Jackson is a tough cat to peg
even by deep threat standards. I went against most of the fantasy
world by ranking Jackson as mid-to-upper WR2 in 12-team leagues
(as opposed to a clear WR1), but that is exactly how he performed
in terms of consistency in 2010. Considering his tough-to-predict
mood swings and inconsistency as a fantasy property, I don’t
expect much to change anytime soon regarding my outlook for him.
On-Target – (6.2%) Maclin (PPR). Much like Hakeem Nicks
above, there was little doubt Maclin was a good breakout candidate
even though he had a wonderfully-talented receiver opposite him
in the starting lineup. What didn’t seem as likely, however,
was that Kolb would get injured so early and that Celek would
fall out of favor so quickly. With Jackson showing hesitation
over running routes over the middle, McCoy and Maclin quickly
became fast on-field friends with Vick in the passing game.
Off-Target – (12.5%) McCoy. One of the biggest aggravations
I endured last season was the unheralded improvements McCoy made
physically during the 2010 offseason. While he was reported to
be in the best shape of his life (a common phrase uttered by all
beat writers every preseason) and was the team’s standout
during preseason practice, it wasn’t until 2-3 weeks into
the season that I heard any mention of the 12 pounds of muscle
he added to his frame. Along with the threat of Vick running on
every play, it was the offseason work McCoy put in that made him
such a fantasy revelation last year. Not only did he run fearlessly,
he also was more elusive than he was in college (which is saying
Misses – (37.5%) Kolb, Vick, Celek. Obviously, I completely
missed on Vick (just like the rest of the world did) because Andy
Reid was convinced Kolb was his franchise QB for the entire preseason
and about one half of the first game. Vick’s emergence naturally
led to the whiff on Kolb and both players’ fortunes dramatically
altered Celek’s bottom line, although a heavy reliance on
McCoy and Avant as well as injuries also went a long way into
turning the TE into a fantasy disappointment.
Not included – Mike Bell and Jerome Harrison.
Grade: C+ I’m not sure
if luck was on my side with the Eagles’ WRs or if I just
assumed that Kolb and Vick would target their receivers in the
same manner no matter who was under center at the time, but there’s
little doubt I did a good job forecasting how many points the
receivers would score (off by a total of 0.2 FPPG in PPR on the
four receivers and 0.4 in non-PPR). I have to dock myself at least
one grade for Vick as I didn’t trust my instinct on him,
but my Celek projection was the most disappointing. Despite the
presence of so much green on the chart above, I have to take into
account the amount I was off on my misses.
– (12.5%) Moss, Davis (both non-PPR). Unfortunately,
much like the Carolina Panthers’ Steve Smith, we’ll
probably never get a truly good idea on how great Moss could have
been. Like Smith, Moss has usually been his team’s best
possession and big-play WR (which is uncommon for players of their
stature) because of mediocre QB play for a large part of their
careers. Moss has spoken highly of HC Mike Shanahan and has stated
his desire to return to Washington – he is a free agent
– so perhaps this will end up being a case where he will
mentor the incoming rookie crop of receivers, namely Leonard Hankerson
and Niles Paul, while slowly transitioning into a regular slot
role as his career begins to wind down.
On-Target – (56.25%) McNabb, Portis, Galloway; Moss and
Davis (both PPR); Cooley (non-PPR). While I’ll take my blues
and be happy with it on McNabb, I don’t think anyone could
have imagined how quickly a rift grew between the QB and Team
Shanahan (HC Mike and OC Kyle). Moss performed about like I expected
in the end, although he had to carry the passing game more often
than he should have. Thankfully, Portis’ five-game run left
me in good standing with my prediction for him. Looking back,
the only part I would have changed is my forecast of him lasting
for 16 weeks, although to be fair, I thought the fact he would
be sharing the load would help him in the durability department.
Off-Target – (12.5%) Cooley (PPR), Thomas (non-PPR). Because
Moss’ size has often made him a poor bet to score in the
red zone, it would make sense that responsibility would likely
fall on a player like Cooley. However, Cooley continued his three-year
trend of posting small TD numbers, even though his catch and yardage
numbers were solid once again. Help appears to be on the way courtesy
of this year’s draft, but with one, two and three receiving
scores, respectively, in the last three seasons, it may not be
wise to expect anything more than a high-catch, four-score season
for the tight end in 2011.
Misses – (18.75%) Johnson; Thomas (PPR). HC Mike Shanahan’s
reputation for having a quick hook at the RB position grew more
legendary early in the season when LJ lost 10 yards on a single
run in Week 2; he was cut shortly thereafter. The new coaching
staff could not inspire Thomas to work any harder in practice
than the previous coaching staff could, so he followed Johnson
out the door about a month later after it became clear Anthony
Armstrong had emerged as the best receiver on this team not named
Not included – Ryan Torain and Armstrong.
Grade: B- Trying to predict
this backfield was a messy proposition in 2010, even by the standards
Shanahan has established as the coach most hated by fantasy owners.
Portis was destined for injury given the tread left on his tires
while Johnson seemed unlikely to last the season as did Torain,
which left forecasters trying to decide if we should really include
4-5 Washington RBs in our preseason predictions. Thomas and Johnson
went undrafted in most leagues so, once again, I’m willing
to walk away from this team forecast with a positive vibe.
