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).
Heading into their bye week, Tampa Bay announced that Ryan Fitzpatrick has been sent back to the bench to make way for Jameis Winston. I don’t really understand that move; Fitzpatrick posted three 400-plus yard passing games, along with 11 passing touchdowns. Even after posting a very average 126 yards in one half of football last week, Fitzpatrick still sports a 114 quarterback rating, an 11-to-5 touchdown-to-interception ratio and 1,356 passing yards (which projects to 5,400 yards over a full season). To pull him for the very pedestrian Winston seems like an ill-advised panic move … Patrick Mahomes continues to play at a level far above the rest of the league.
