2018 Fantasy Football Stats

Info on the stats. Please see my posts or send me a message if you have questions.

Statistical Points Floor

A standard deviation below the mean, specific to each individual player. A measure of potential, don’t necessarily be spooked by a negative floor score. It likely just indicates higher potential for low to no points, not actually negative points

Statistical Points Ceiling

A standard deviation above the mean, specific to each individual player. A measure of potential, not a projection.

Games Played

A count of games in which a given player participated. To participate in a game, a player must have been on the field for 1 or more snaps. Points Per Game, Standard Deviation, and other derivative stats take into account each individual player’s game count, not the game count for the team they play on.

Fantasy Points

Self explanatory. Select your scoring type in the appropriate dropdown with the app. Data similar to ESPN scoring for each type.

Standard Deviation

Average distance from the mean (PPG). On average, how far a player strays from their average number of points in one direction or the other.

Consistency

A statistical consistency measurement, this score is an inverse of the Coefficient of Variation (1 over the Cov). This stat is similar to Standard Deviation, but normalizes for different point totals.
