New Age Projections for the new age of fantasy football
I gave up doing preseason player projections several years ago– they’re way too much work, and there’s way too many hacks I’m competing against that either (a) steal other people’s work, or (b) just throw darts at player names. After nearly 20 years, it just got tiresome.
However, since so many of you found my Consistency Rankings so useful– and were nice enough to subscribe to my social media outlets– I was inspired to come up with some projections for your drafts. These projections are one part Fantasy Sharks analysis, one part Consistency Rankings, and one part geeky math… so they are a nice mix of predictive analytics and human expertise.
Top Five Players Per Position
Note: I’m offering a spreadsheet of the New Age Projections for all offensive players to anyone who asks for it. If you want a free copy of the complete New Age Projections, just send me a note at email@example.com and I’ll send you a copy.
Is there a catch? Sort of. Do me a favor and subscribe to either my Twitter feed or my Youtube channel or both. They’re both 100% free. Let’s face it, this column takes some effort and it’d be nice to see some love heading back my way from you people … I don’t care if you actually consume any of the content at my Riot links, but your subscribing allows me to get some perks on those platforms. So, let’s see if I can get 500 Sharks to sign up for each of my outlets… thanks for the support!
