Fantasy Football Reading And Analyzing Your Results

Table of Contents

Introduction

When it comes to fantasy football, knowing where your team stands goes far beyond a win or a loss. Understanding your results and analyzing them is very important for the future of your team and season. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to analyze your results and statistics so that you can hopefully stand atop the mountain as champion of your league at the end of the season.

Post-Game Analysis

In this tutorial, we'll learn how to interpret your results and analyze them to use them to your advantage for your next game.

Return on Investment (ROI)

'Return on investment' refers to how a player performs based on the investment the team owner made to acquire them. For example, if a player that was drafted in the first round performs extremely well and exceeds the lofty expectations that warranted using an early draft pick on the player, this is considered a high return on investment.

Using Stats to Make Lineup Changes

The term 'stats' refers to a player's statistical performance for any given week. When players don't perform well in the NFL, the coach replaces their spot in the lineup with someone who they believe will perform better. This philosophy goes for fantasy football as well. For example, if quarterback Kirk Cousins has scored under 20 fantasy points in each of his last two starts while your backup quarterback Sam Bradford has scored over 25 points each of the last two weeks, you might consider benching Cousins in favor of Bradford.

While this seems like an obvious switch to make, it is important to remember that statistics don't always tell you everything and you should consider weekly matchups before changing your lineup. In this case, you would still be better off keeping Kirk Cousins in as your starter if Sam Bradford is facing the best pass defense in the NFL that week.

Interpreting Player Performances

Maintaining success in a fantasy football league requires you to note how your opponent's players performed. Which player scored the most points? Which player put them in the lead in points? Were there any surprise risks they took? Did any of your players play against their players in real life? Also, take note of how all of the other teams in the league performed in general. Did quarterbacks play well this week or wide receivers?

It is also important to not put all of your stock into one performance. If a player struggles one week, there could be external factors that are not likely to influence that player's performance the following week. For instance, if your defense does not perform well during the first game of the season, it is likely that the team is still trying to 'click' and shake off the rust from a long offseason. The same logic applies to a rookie that did not play well in his first career start, as that player likely just needed a week to adapt to playing football at the professional level.

While these considerations might seem unnecessary on the surface, they all add up to make a difference week by week.

If a player consistently underperforms, you may be inclined to release that player into free agency or seek out a trade with another team. We'll discuss more of this in the next chapter.

Ending a Season

First, we'll learn what happens once the fantasy football season concludes, including your season results. We'll also discuss possible payouts and bonus payouts that occur at season's end.

Looking Ahead to Next Season

The playoffs have officially concluded and a champion of the league has been crowned. Before all of the rosters are reset for the next season, take a look at the champion's team and see what they did well. Did their quarterbacks dominate or their defense? It's never too early to prepare for next season!

In addition, take a look at the final league standings. Note how everyone placed and briefly examine each manager's roster, paying special attention to the players that players stood out or underachieving throughout the year.

Roster Adjustments

No team is perfect, so a steady commitment to roster adjustments is vital to the success of any fantasy football team. Reflect on all the transactions you made throughout the course of the season (trades, adding/dropping free agents, lineup substitutions). Which moves benefitted the team and helped up your weekly point total? Which moves didn't work out so well? These are all questions you should be asking yourself as you try to better your approach for the following season.
