Another crazy week in the NFL, and here we go at another attempt trying to predict the NEARLY unpredictable. Weekly readers will likely jump straight to the charts/our picks, but if you are new to this piece (as we have picked up some steam of late), here is what you are looking at: leveraging advanced data, our models hone in on player matchups AND defensive tendencies to predict what WRs are more or less likely to “boom” in a given week.

The models take into account everything from height, speed, advanced grading and yards per route run and compare that to the (weighted, expected) corresponding defensive player’s respective data. We mesh that with some defensive tendencies we expect to see, along with how that WR has performed given those splits, and find players to start/sit for the given week. We’ve been on fire lately and hope we help you towards a winning week.

Week 12 Results:

Another week, another winning board. We are especially proud of the call on Jauan Jennings and have a couple of similar plays for this week!
