Week 3 NFL DFS Rankings for Fanduel, DraftKings with Standard Deviation and Variance rating

These stats factor in the usual standard deviation and coefficient variable rating that I do on a weekly basis. It easy to figure for yourself a player not on the list. For nfl player rankings using this model, I like to use the past 5 games sample size, so that we don’t go too far back, nor too small of a sample size. Here’s the calculator link if your into fantasy football analytics, here is the calculator. This deviations and variables will be for the Main Sunday NFL Fanduel Slate, so numbers will of course vary on dratkings, mainly because of the 1 point per reception scoring there.

Here’s a video as a brief overview of the Cash Game outlook for week 8:

We’ll add another video at the bottom of this post for the Tournament style lineup considerations, later this week, so check back by saturday.

Here are the Tournament/Sleeper Plays for week 8 DFS:

  1. Looks like you know what you are talking about, it sounds confusing to me, but that is because I do not really know anything about sports at all.

    This looks like something that would be a great idea if you know a lot more about football, then I do.

    You oviously know what you are talking about, when it comes to fantasy football.  

  2. Hi there, is great to have all of the stats of the game with their deviations and variables in one place to check it out! I’ll wait for the video of the tournament style lineup consideration, you said it will be available tomorrow 🙂 thank you and keep up the great work!

  3. Hi Andy, 

    Thanks very much for this weeks update. I came across your site when I was looking into fantasy football and I can tell that you provide a wealth of knowledge for those involved. I’m going to check out the calculator you mentioned… it’s interesting how mathematics and standard deviation make their way into fantasy sports!



    1. Yes Shane, this way you won’t havae to try and get too cute, if you know what I mean. Just run the numbers and let the consistency rating decide for the most part, as long as you know how to use it.

  4. Great post! I think that fantasy football is very interesting. Perhaps not as stressful as the real deal, but the calculations and number tracking looks more like someone that is studying the stock market! I think it’s great that platforms like these exist for anyone to try their hand at managing a team.

    I know from experience from fantasy football fans that for them this is not just a game. They are so passionate about it you wouldn’t be able to separate  them from managers of actual football teams.

  5. I wish I had known about your site a couple of years ago!  My family (daughter, son-in-law, granddaugher and two grandsons) got involved in fantasy football and it was way over my head.  What was supposed to be a fun activity turned very competitive!  My grandson’s helped a little, but not enough to give me an edge to beat them 😀  I’m really impressed with the information you have available, and will bookmark the page.  You never know when I’ll need to brush up on my player stats.

    1. Thank you very much for stopping by again Nancy, this will continue to help you, as my site does not change too much so you’ll basically know what to expect.
