BEST Defenses - week 4 - SEE WW FORUM!

Postby Plindsey88 » Tue Sep 27, 2005 7:42 am

OK, so I know everyone is accustomed to seeing my best defenses thread published weekly right here in the leftovers forum, but the cafe management and I have decided to change things up a bit, because of the growing popularity of my weekly thread. Instead of publishing my formula results right here in the leftovers forum every week, I've decided to write a weekly column for the "Point of View" section of the cafe.... In there I will highlight the key matchups that I believe people can take advantage of, and give a brief synopsis of why I think each matchup is desirable... In addition, I will rank the top 9-12 matchups weekly, giving each matchup a ranking from 2-5 stars.... These articles will be based on formula results, but will also be colored by a little bit of personal insight....

Also, after the article is published every week, I will post the actual formula results in the "Draft, Trade, and Wavier Wire" forum so that people can get an idea of where the teams that are not discussed in the article fall in the grand scheme of things... In that thread I will be answering whatever questions people have regarding defensive matchups for their particular league, and discussing any matchups that I did not address in the article....

ADDITIONALLY - I have added a strength of schedule calculation to my formula, which should help to correct some of the problems encountered early in the year when defenses face particularly difficult or easy matchups which skew the results of my calculations.... I have also added a modifier which takes into account which teams are playing at home, and which teams have to play in hostile territory.... The new results look pretty damn good, and I look forward to sharing them with you.... So, keep an eye out for the article, and remember to check the other forum for the weekly discussion thread....

;-D

LOL.... It's a pretty safe bet to say that Cincinnati's defense is one helluva play this week, but I'm not going to answer any of those questions in this forum, anymore... The article should be out today or tomorrow, and the discussion thread will be posted shortly thereafter....

I was just giving you a hard time because you said in one of your responses that you have CIN's defense and you're going to keep them in your lineup each week! ;-)

Couldn't agree more. Thanks for all the hard work that goes into your insight.
