5/9 were break out games and 6/9 were median score or above (8)
In particular, the analyzer chose ATL and MIA which no other list selected and those two had break outgames.
A very good week for the Analyzer.

Also: Yahoo (posted on October 5th: CHI: 28, SF; 12, HOU, tbd, BAL: 15, NYG: 6, PIT: 8, GB: 5, MIN: 10, SEA: 15, PHI: 1; 5/9 breakout; 6/9 median; Also recommended PHI who had only 1 point; Not as good as analyzer
The analyzer performed well this past week with 2/3s of picks being better than the median score. Two picks chosen based on the TO/S ratios (ATL and MIA) which were the only solo picks of the analyzer had breakout games of 10+ points. So far, looking at that metric is 3/3.
However, SEA appeared on 4 other lists and scored 15 points. It was on my riskier picks list. MIN showed on 3 other lists and scored 10 points and I upgraded to a good recommendation. STL appeared on 2 other lists and scored 18 point and I did not recommend them; bad call. GB showed up on 3 other lists but scored only 5 points. It was very low on my list of sacks/turnovers ratio which was a good call. PIT appeared on my list and Bleachers but no one else's and I downgraded to 'shaky' but they actually got 8 points or the median score. Hopefully no harm done. CIN appeared on my and KFFL's list but no one else's and they scored 7 or one point below median. Semi-bad call.
Thus, it may be worthwhile in addition to looking at Analyzer to look at other lists for teams that show on two or more for possible breakouts. Of SEA< MIN, GB and STL, 3 of the 4 had breakout games.
The NYG appeared on all 6 lists and ARI appeared on everyone but Yahoo's list and had only 6 and 4 points respectively. Bad calls all around.
Missed: CAR had 17 points vs. SEA including a safety and a defensive TD; KC vs. BAL had 12 points. WAS v. ATL had 11 points including a defensive TD. CAR would have been hard to predict, they had a very low ranking on sacks/turnovers ratios and yet had 2 sacks 3 turnovers for the game. Just a fluke? KC had 4 sacks and 2 turnovers and held the ravens to only 9 points. Also would have been hard to predict. WAS had a defensive score from 1 sack and two turnovers that tipped them over the 10 point game. Also would have been tough to predict.
A considerable advantage of the Analyzer is that it was posted Tuesday Oct 2nd where as the others were posted Wednesday which is after the 2 day waiver wire pick-up deadline that many leagues have and Yahoo posted on Friday the 5th (after the Thursday game).
Lesson so far is that the Analyzer does seem to work pretty well as it has in year's past. It's comparable to other sites and if a team appears on more than one other of the rankings that I chose, it looks like it may be worth picking up.
