NEW AGE RANKINGS: Week 5

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

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.
