Fantasy Points Scored & Fantasy Points Allowed
Every team is going to produce fantasy points in different ways. A team might have a strong core of running backs that rack up fantasy points, or a team might be more pass-happy and link up with wide receivers more. You can also see what team’s kickers and defenses are producing the most points. Every team is also broken into two ratings, the offense and defense ratings showcase our own views on what they are producing for stats. The fantasy points scored table can be shown for game logs, sites, and scoring. If you want to use the slider to adjust for specific weeks, it will show teams scoring fantasy points for that time span.
When the season gets going, using the fantasy points allowed tool is going to break out what teams allow the most or least fantasy points to specific positions. This should be one of the pitstops for making your weekly decisions as you can see if the matchup for your RB1 is a good one, or he is going up against a defense that is limiting fantasy production. You can switch around scoring and also take a look at game logs to see how they did against specific opponents and in certain game scripts.
NFL Depth Charts
Reviewing and keeping tabs on team depth charts is an important part of fantasy football success. Throughout the season there will be injuries and changes to starters. Seeing what running back is listed first or how the wide receiver core is shaking out will give you an idea of how touches are divided. You can also be on top of names to pick up when injured players go down. There tends to be a mad dash to the waiver wire, and you need to make sure you are getting the right player.
Snap Counts, Touches, Targets, & Receptions
When looking at players for fantasy football, there is a lot to break down. Looking at snap counts is going to give you an indication of who is out on the field. This is important when evaluating something like a running back committee. You are going to want to see how snaps are divided within the group. The same goes for a potential WR3 who might be on the field a ton. Snap counts can help tell you a story about how teams use that player. If you are in an IDP league, you are going to want to make sure that players are on the field, as teams will rotate them in and out based on different defensive packages.
Opportunity and volume are what we are after when looking at fantasy players. The more touches a running back has, the more chances for fantasy points he has. We want running backs who are going to see 15+ touches a game, but that isn’t always the case. Some teams will break them up between two or three running backs, which can be a tricky fantasy situation. Sometimes they can get a workhorse back who is seeing 20+ touches a game and that is where a fantasy goldmine can occur.
In the passing game, every passing attempt is going to be a target for someone. That can be for running backs, wide receivers, or tight ends. When looking at a passing offense, you are going to want to see where those targets go. The WR1 is going to usually see the most targets, but a strong TE1 might be right up there as well. After that things get more divided, and there are a few different ways it can go. The WR2 and WR3 will fall right in line as you see a drop in targets for each, but the WR2 still has fantasy relevance. You might see a team flat out spread targets evenly with a running back, tight end, and then the rest of the wide receivers. That is another tricky situation that can occur.
NFL odds each week can tell you a lot about how games are projected to play out. You can tie this into fantasy football to help make some decisions. For example, games with high totals are going to correlate with big fantasy points. Teams that are touchdown or more favorites are predicted to be ahead and the game script will be favorable for the running game. Teams that are projected to trail can see a tick up in passing attempts. Odds will also change throughout the week as oddsmakers react to news. This could point towards a player is in or out if they are questionable, especially if they are a major player. If there is some bad weather projected and oddsmakers drop the total down, it might be a red flag to start a fringe player in this game. Overall odds can be very helpful and are not just for betting purposes.
Fantasy Football Waiver Wire
The waiver wire can be a battle throughout the year, and we pride ourselves on bringing some of the top waiver-wire advice to help you pick up the most crucial pickups for the week. No matter if you are in a deep league, or shallow league, there will be recommendations for all.

If you are playing in a FAAB league, which means you have a budget to bid on free agents over the course of a season. We give our estimation on what that player is worth based on the FAAB budget, that way you don’t overspend on a player.
Fantasy Football Projections
Projections have become a big part of the fantasy football industry, as daily fantasy football has taken off over the last decade. Our projections bring you a few different looks, as it offers floor, ceiling, and a base projection to help you see the range of outcomes for each player. Projections will update throughout the week and up until game time as there will be news that dictates the projection. Now these projections can be used for both daily and season-long fantasy football. It can help you build a daily fantasy lineup, but also help you make decisions in season long as you might be between two players. If you are betting on player props, the projections are broken out so you can see whether a player is projected to hit or miss the player prop chosen for him.
Fantasy Football Player Stats

Within each position tab you will see stats for players and how those stats translate into fantasy points. You can also see fantasy points per touch, snap, and per game.
