Michael Nease brings you his insights each week for the world of Fantasy Football. Follow him on Twitter @mikeinsights

Are you doing all you can do to win each week, or are you just sailing blindly through the season? There are things you can do to turn your losing team into a winner, instead of making you be a whiner. Are you willing to roll up your sleeves and do some work, or are you content being a LOSER? Losers should probably just stop reading at this point. I wouldn’t want to fill your head with wasted knowledge that you have no interest in anyway.

Ok, now that they have left the room, let’s get down to some serious discussion. I continually push you to diligently work the weekly waiver wire and make useful trades when you can find one that is equitable. I am in five leagues, with my local dynasty league (24 player rosters) being one with very limited waiver rules.

In the other four, we have standard waiver order waiver processing followed by FCFS waivers. We also have trading, although many owners are reluctant to ever trade. On those four teams I have 78 players. As of right now I only have 40 players that I originally drafted. Yes, that is almost a 50% turnover in the first six weeks of the season. A progress report shows that three of those teams are current in first place in their divisions with one at 5-1 and two at4-2. The other team is 3-3 after losing in Week 6 bye .4 of one point. Five more yards and I would have won. Ouch!

When you look at your lineup, view it as a combination of players designed to give you enough points not only to win this week, but enough to win each and every week and ultimately to win your league championship. Conversely, if your lineup is too impotent to score the points you need consistently, you MUST try to fix it to win. Fantasy football is not a game for slackers.

Another key win killer is bad lineup selection. I am using MyFantasyLeague.com as my league management system in all my leagues this season, and have used it for most of my leagues historically. I love it except for one feature, weekly player scoring projections. Mind you, this problem is not only one you encounter there. Most game platforms project weekly points. Everyone has their unique winning algorithm that suggests who to use in your lineup.

They then summarize all the projected scores and let you know where you stand in relation to your opponent. The funny thing with MFL is that they also show a somewhat misleading power ranking that highlights what percentage of total points possible that you actually get each week. With better teams you have more depth and that brings with it the dubious issue of choosing a lineup with your best potential scoring combination. Sometimes too many solid options lead to confusion. On the other hand, weak teams often have a higher efficiency percentage simply because owners have too few players to choose from. The best measure of success is simply whether you win, or lose, not an ambiguous statistical tool. 

The projections are just about as valid as having a fervent belief in Santa Claus. Just as he cannot be counted on to slide down millions of chimneys on Christmas Eve, believing in the faulty projections the software spits out will only lead to disappointment. Too many people have absolute faith in these numbers because they are computer generated. Years ago, I did a limited projections study and found that I was just about as accurate with my own point estimates as the computer was over an eight week test period.

That served to prove to me the fact that I had no valid method to do it and also strengthened my belief that the computer generated projections were not too reliable either. Whatever way you choose your starters you will find that you leave 15% to 25% of your

Scoring on the bench.

Now, close your eyes and envision cutting those point deficits in half. Having a more scoring efficient lineup can lead to an extra 10-12 points. How many games do you lose by less than that? People work there butts off on drafting and waivers and then hurry through the lineup process. In my five games this week I played two teams who had players who were out. These were not last minute decisions declaring the players as out. Both of them had been declared out days before the games.

When you review waiver moves, you always look for players that have been hot and replace those that have been slumping or hurt. Why do we have an entirely different mindset when we come down to choosing which players to start in the main event in fantasy football, the weekly game? When we lose close games we are breaking a cardinal rule. We are repeating the same faulty methods time after time and expecting different results. That my friends is the definition of stupid.

It all goes back to the erroneous notion of ADP. We determine our player values based on what the masses tell us they should be. Each and every season we know that some studs will get hurt and others will seriously underplay their assumed value. Sometimes an injury will hinder a player’s ability to score. Those algorithms’ never quite seem to recognize that. As a result bad choices are made and are validated by invalid data.

Ok, so it seems that lineup selection is impossible to perfect. That is not really true at all. What we need to do is sit down with a pad of paper and analyze player production, one at a time by position. While not always a 100% proposition, at least we are then intelligently taking ownership of our picks, rather than using an often times misleading cheat sheet.

What I do is weigh the last three weeks of scoring to determine a trend. Then I factor in injury status and the defensive prowess of their opponent’s defense. I try to collect consistent players with an upside. I avoid players like WRs Torrey Smith and Terrance Williams who are erratic and while they could give you 20 points, they are more likely to get about 4-5. Taking everything into consideration I then select my weekly lineup based on my judgment. Why take a risk when there are so many better options?

I have compiled a sampling of what you will find when you analyze player scoring for your lineup this week. I have focused on the last three weeks for my review (Weeks 4-6) as players go through what I call 2-3 seasons within a single year. Players emerge, some slow down and some are fighting off nagging, debilitating injuries. Here is where those player selection algorithms’ fail you. They tend to take a sort of vanilla, chocolate approach. Studs get high point estimates and newbies get miniscule ones. This leads to fatally flawed lineups and losses.

These players are listed by position with the last three weeks of scoring, their FPPG average and where they rank scoring wise relation to all players at their position. Remember that Detroit and Houston players in this listing are on bye this week.

TE Delanie Walker, Ten           8-6-6           6 FPPG #25  

TE Jordan Reed, Was               5-Bye-8       6 FPPG #26

 

This is just part of the analysis that is needed each and every week. There will be times when the low scoring, disappointing player might be a better option to use than other alternatives on their roster. There will be weeks when a red hot player gets injured in practice and his “real” health status is very iffy. Bear in mind that virtually anything can happen in a given week. This analytical method only helps you get a little better edge. Fantasy football will always have that luck factor. As a wise person once said, sometimes it is better to be lucky than good.

I look forward to helping you in your quest to win championships this year.

Good luck! Have fun!

Big Gronk! Big Fantasy points! Rob Gronkowski blows everyone away this week with a huge game to take the #1 spot in Week 6.

Consistency. Any educated fantasy owner knows that you need your Fantasy Football players to be not only good, but also consistently good! It’s a proven fact that the more consistent your Fantasy players are throughout the season, the better chance that you’ll have to win. More wins equals playoffs and playoffs can turn into championships! That’s why I’ll be here each week to help you identify the most consistent Fantasy football players in your quest towards a Fantasy championship.

Unfamiliar with how consistency can help your Fantasy team? Make sure to subscribe to the In-Season Package or VIP package and get all the consistency information you need to win your league!

Your subscription includes the Clutch Report, which will help you determine how consistent are the players in your league with your scoring method!

A quick recap for those unfamiliar with the Clutch Games system.  The Head-to-Head (H2H) format in Fantasy Football leads to the need for consistency. Many teams have been near the top of their league in scoring, but miss the playoffs by one or two games. Many will call it “bad luck” and that’s partially true. Injuries to key players, bad weather, etc. are situations that affect our Fantasy teams, but are uncontrollable. However, there is one aspect of Fantasy football that you can control. The consistency of your team!

A Clutch Game is awarded to a player each week when they exceed the Clutch Game Factor in your league for that position. The more Clutch Games a player is awarded each year, the more consistent that player is and the more beneficial they are to your Fantasy team. 

The scoring method used will be 1 point per 20 yards passing and 4 points for passing touchdowns; 1 point per 10 yards rushing and receiving; 1 point per reception; and 6 points for any rushing/receiving touchdown.

So, let’s review Week 6 for the tight ends…

THE EXPECTED

The tight ends were just above the normal number of Quality Game earners (12) in Week 1 with 15! I’m moving Cameron Brate to the expected section as he ranked second for the week and is tied with Gronk with an 80% Clutch Rate. Zach Ertz continues to be the only perfectly consistent tight end thru Week 6. Remember when I mentioned about Hunter Henry getting hot after Antonio Gates earned his record-breaking touchdown? Well, he’s earned four of five Clutch Games since then. Trade for him soon! Jack Doyle earned his second Clutch Game, but he’s not consistent enough for me to be a weekly starter.   

THE UNEXPECTED

Some real no-names hit the list this week with players like Dion Sims, Michael Hoomanawanui, and Troy Niklas. Austin Seferian-Jenkins (who wins the “TE with the most letters in his name by two letters”), has earned two straight Clutch Games. But I’m not getting too excited just yet. In addition to Dion Sims, Zach Miller earned his second straight Clutch Game as well.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, tight ends who didn’t earn a Quality Game this week. Many of those poor Fantasy owners who grabbed one of these running backs early in their drafts cannot be happy with this past week’s performance.

THE EXPECTED

There was the normal average of wide receivers this week with 36. The expected studs like Antonio Brown (#2); Demaryius Thomas (#3), and Mike Evans (#9) were accounted for. Golden Tate finally regained his consistency this week but has been slightly disappointing this year. Throw in the shoulder injury from this past weekend and it may not get any better for him. The Lions have a bye this week. Try to grab Marvin Jones if you can. Everyone was down on Jarvis Landry after the Jay Cutler signing, but look who’s at an 80% Clutch Rate. Another preseason favorite of mine was Michael Crabtree and even with the Derek Carr injury, Crabtree has maintained his consistency (80%). With DeAndre Hopkins NOT earning a Clutch Game this week, the only remaining perfectly consistent WR is A.J. Green.

THE UNEXPECTED

There are always a group of unexpected receivers who the average Fantasy owners may not recognize. This week’s group includes Marvin Hall, DeAnthony Thomas, and Taywan Taylor. Will any of these player’s consistency continue? I’ll certainly let you know, in this weekly series, as I see consistency trends in players. In case you missed it, Will Fuller has earned three straight Clutch Games. Therefore, he’s the only unexpected perfect receiver with a three for three in Clutch Games.

The unexpected bad list is huge this week! Top studs like Amari Cooper (FOR THE FOURTH WEEK IN A ROW!), DeAndre Hopkins, Keenan Allen and Tyreek Hill were real kick in the groins for many Fantasy owners! Amari Cooper is now ONE for SIX in Clutch Games!

Waiver Wire Consistency

If you’re looking for some names of consistent receivers who may be on your waiver wire, I would like for the following names: DeAnthony Thomas and Taywan Taylor.

Here is a group of those “bad” surprises, wide receivers who didn’t earn a Clutch Game this week. Many of those poor Fantasy owners who grabbed one of these wide receivers early in their drafts cannot be happy with this week’s performance.
