Analyzing Fantasy Matchups - Week 11

Postby mattb47 » Sat Nov 19, 2011 4:20 am

Here are the week 11 best/worst matchups of the week according to my spreadsheet analysis at each fantasy position. Of course I can't give information about each player and matchup so if you have any more specific questions about a player or anything, let me know and I can dig up whatever stats you guys need from what I have.

These rankings are based on projected points for the players based on their average production and the matchup quality. The number in parentheses is the rank of the defense against that position (#1 is easiest matchup, #32 is most difficult)


Top 10 Plays

1. Aaron Rodgers vs. Tampa Bay (12th)
2. Tom Brady vs. Kansas City (10th)
3. Eli Manning vs. Philadelphia (5th)
4. Matthew Stafford vs. Carolina (21st)
5. Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Miami (6th)
6. Matt Ryan vs. Tennessee (9th)
7. Cam Newton vs. Detroit (30th)
8. Josh Freeman vs. Green Bay (4th)
9. Tony Romo vs. Washington (25th)
10. Alex Smith vs. Arizona (11th)

5 Worst Plays

28. Blaine Gabbert vs. Cleveland (26th)
27. Sam Bradford vs. Seattle (17th)
26. John Beck vs. Dallas (24th)
25. Tarvaris Jackson vs. St. Louis (20th)
24. Andy Dalton vs. Baltimore (31st)

I'm a little more wary of the guys who have the tougher matchups but a higher projection because they've averaged so many points all season (i.e. Cam Newton up against the 3rd toughest matchup, Romo up against the 8th toughest).

Running Backs

Top 10 Plays

1. Michael Bush vs. Minnesota (14th)

5. Brandon Jacobs vs. Philadelphia (6th)
6. Ray Rice vs. Cincinnati (16th)
7. Frank Gore/Kendall Hunter vs. Arizona (10th)
8. Reggie Bush vs. Buffalo (5th)

10. DeMarco Murray vs. Washington (21st)
