Ok... here's the RBs... give me a little bit and I'll write up some commentary...
So, how to read this spreadsheet...
avg1: average total yardage
stdev1:standard deviation of yardage
avg2 and stdev2 are averages and standard deviations computed for some special circumstances - notably Edge and Rudi getting breaks late in the season, and LJ becoming the starter.
avgfp1: average fantasy points computed using 10 yds = 1 pt, tds=6 and fractional points
stdevfp1: standard deviation of fantasy points
avgfp2 and stdevfp2 are the same logic as avg2 and stdev2.
Running commentary, in no logical order...
*I know there's some downside to Tiki because of mileage/age, but statistically, he belongs alongside the top 3 backs and bests all of them in standard deviation (except for LJ as a starter, whose numbers were RIDICULOUS).
*We got stuck on Rudi for a bit, but check out Edge's numbers for both fantasy points and yardage averages/std. deviations. Question remains, can he stay consistent in Arizona.
*Domanick Davis may be an oversight in this year's draft. He was injured a lot last year, but when he played, he put up CONSISTENT top 10 numbers
It takes a bit of time to run all of this, so I'll be doing the positions as I get a free hour here and there this weekend...
