Welcome to the 2018 Fantasy Football Stats Explorer. I’ve been developing versions of these stats for a few years now, and this year I’ve migrated everything into Tableau with a Python backend.

Other Features include position select, team filters, and Boris Chen Tiers.
2018 Fantasy Football Stats
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.
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.
Self explanatory. Select your scoring type in the appropriate dropdown with the app. Data similar to ESPN scoring for each type.
Points Per Game (PPG)
Average points a player has scored season-to-date. Fantasy Points divided by Games Played.
Sum of all snaps a player has seen throughout the season.
Sum of all targets a player has seen throughout the season.
Sum of all receptions a player has seen throughout the season.
Sum of all reception yards a player has accumulated throughout the season.
Sum of all rush attempts a player has seen throughout the season.
Sum of all rushing yards a player has accumulated throughout the season.
Sum of Pass Attempts, Targets, and Rush Attempts throughout the season.
Sum of Pass, Receptions, and Rushing Yards throughout the season.
Sum of Pass, Reception, and Rushing Touchdowns throughout the season.
Percent of ESPN leagues in which a player is owned (as of last update).
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.
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.
