A new type of ranking system for a new breed of fantasy football players … the New Age Rankings.
PPG: Points per game; calculated by standard points per reception scoring.
CoV: Coefficient of Variance; a measure of a player’s consistency.
Normalized PPG: the player’s PPG score, expressed as a value between 0 and 100 (the higher the better).
Normalized CoV: the player’s CoV score, expressed as a value between 0 and 100 (the lower the better).
N.A.R.: the player’s New Age Ranking, expressed as a value between 0 and 100 (the higher the better).
Don’t read too much into rookie Nick Mullens‘ high ranking; his NFL debut came against the hapless Oakland Raiders… then again, his second game is against the equally depressing Giants this week, so who knows? I know that I’m constantly in the minority on this issue, but I am of the belief that Ryan Fitzpatrick is a legit starter this season. I’m not saying he needs a spot on your dynasty team, but he has a history of having a solid season every 2-3 he plays; this is one of those seasons.
