Who Sharks are Starting – Week 8 Update

Frank Gore, Lee Evans, and Drew Brees have moved up to the top in your Saturday report from the Stat Lab in Who Sharks are Starting. You don’t need a report to tell you 98% of owners are starting Marion Barber. This is decision-by-decision analysis of actual lineups ripped from the offical and community leagues here at FantasySharks.com to help you decide who to start.

Here’s what you need to know about these rankings:

  • Players are ranked by strength. Scores vary with the number of lineups in the calculation, and will be lower in the mid-week report than on Saturdays. The highest-ranked punter has a lower score than the highest-ranked running back because because fewer leagues use punters. The bigger the scores, the bigger the sample, the more accurate picture of the collective FantasySharks Brain. Mmmmmm… Brains…
  • Scores are not start/bench percentages. This is decision-by-decision analysis of lineups submitted by experts and the Sharks you trust for lineup advice in the Fantasy Sharks forums. The number is a measure of strength based on everything that goes into lineup decisions, and then some.
  • Scoring systems vary. I’m working on adjusting for this, but most of the leagues represented are PPR.

Adjustments for league scoring and other factors are coming soon. If you have other suggestions, stop into the FantasySharks.com forum and let me know what you think and what you’d like to see. As always, for more fantasy football advice, stop in to the Who Should I Start? Forum here at FantasySharks.com.
