NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 3

A new type of ranking system for a new breed of fantasy football players… the New Age Rankings.

Terms Explained:

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).

Quarterbacks

After two weeks, there’s at least four QBs that no one would have predicted being in the top 10: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Blake Bortles, Joe Flacco, and Andy Dalton. Of the four, Fitzpatrick is the most surprising… how long can he keep this up? Maybe he’s similar to the mythical Sampson: as long as no one cuts his beard, he should be worth a start.
