Downloaded overnight off iTunes, that should be my entertainment at work this afternoon!
Awesome stuff! Will get that new podcast site up soon too
Listened to your latest podcast (9?) and noted the comment that Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson were not as consistent as Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton - from a fantasy points production point of view was the implication. I wasn’t so sure so took a bit of a look.
I pulled out the weekly fantasy points for the four guys in 2014 and 2015 - omitting Luck 2015 as there were a lot fewer games. I worked out the standard deviation first as a simple way of gauging how much the players’ scores varied by week (put simply, a low standard deviation means pretty much the same score every week, a high standard deviation means wild swings from high to low)
Wilson 2015: 7.0
Newton 2014: 7.9
Rodgers 2015: 8.1
Rodgers 2014: 8.3
Luck 2014: 9.0
Newton 2015: 9.1
Wilson 2015: 9.2
First thoughts - there’s not a great deal between them, but Russell Wilson last year was actually the most consistent of the bunch.
Another thing I checked out in terms of consistency was how often did the QB put up a solid week (15-25 pts) compared to a great week (25+) or a poor one (under 15). On those arbitrary boundaries, Wilson and Newton had a grand total of ZERO poor weeks last year - that’s how consistently good they both were.
Luck had 7 great weeks in a row in 2014 - 5 of those weeks were over 30 points. Wow.
And Aaron Rodgers had 3 poor weeks last season alone - including a 7 pointer when the Packers got stuffed in Denver.
Interesting stuff Jon, I don’t remember saying that, must have been Sean lol. The year Benjamin played in 2014 Cam was the 16th ranked QB that year
