Welcome back!!! Always love these posts!
Fascinating stuff. You almost seem ready to make the leap to TE streaming -- any interest?
You mean make a study of it like I did for QB and Kicker? I could try it. You can see in my most recent post that I've shown team-TE projections, so it would just be running that TE model through those streaming simulations. I'm skeptical, but why not give it a go just in case it gives an insight... Thanks!
BTW, you asked about Patreon before, and you can always cancel even after a single month so it will not be recurring.
You should do it! Your advice and analysis has been amazing
I'm a first-year fantasy player and just wanted to let you know that your regular weekly posts have been very helpful. Also, I just spent the last couple hours going through your links in this post and trying to sponge up all the information I can from this. I have some good sources I trust when it comes to making week-to-week WW/FA pickups and Play/Sit decisions, but in particular, am looking for some background to increase my decision-making accuracy when mid-week or pre-game changes happen. It is oftentimes hard to tell what my sources have or have not accounted for, or when things were last updated.
Anyways, mostly just wanted to say thanks for the posts and the deep dives to help bring this noob up to speed.
That's perfect! Thanks for the feedback, because that was one way I hoped this content would be used. It's definitely not just a noob thing, because we can see even seasoned players don't have a common understanding. There are certain false narratives floating around about what outcomes are more/less predictable, what factors are relevant, etc. But these are definitely the kinds of things I would have liked knowing when I first started.
Anyway, thanks very much for the note, and good luck!
Yeah, I was kind of reflecting a bit on what I was really trying to get out of it after I wrote my last post and I think I'm really looking for heuristics so that I can make more accurate intuitive decisions. Your quick advice like "Look for kickers with good offense and bad QBs" is useful for quickly understanding and thinking about things :)
Do you think that it's best to play a kicker on the same team as your QB, your opponents' QB, or a neutral kicker, assuming the offenses are roughly similar?
Probably same as your QB; see the link in [this comment](https://www.reddit.com/r/fantasyfootball/comments/ihkl5a/but_heres_some_two_cent_maneuvers_week_0_rankings/g31eaft?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3).
But probably worth doing a short study on risk/reward....
I would be interested. Thanks. :)
Wondering whether or not to start Matt Ryan, Ridley, and Koo. I also have Brees and can start him over Ryan to diversify. But if Ridley eats, then... HMMMMM
