ESPN Hec and Vic Projections...

The problem w/ Hector and Victor is that they predict pretty much EVERY sleeper AND good player to have at least 100yds and a TD. And, as we all know, that's never how it works out.

Seriously every single week I looked at their predictions for my team they had more total pts combined then they ever added up to. For instance, even in the week where H & V's predictions gave my guys the LOWEST total score of the year, it was higher than the total score of my BEST week in reallity.

That's the most obvious pick that it surely would not have come to fruition. If a guy puts up 500 on you in two games, do you not think the other team will spend the whole offseason working on the D gameplan for week 1 against him?

And they thought he was going to set another record. Geez.


Also - absolutely no mention of BAL losing the best Olineman in the NFL. Didnt they think that might have an impact?

ran a little worksheet covering their top 20 picks.
since they didnt differentiate between rush/rec and pass TDs, neither did I:

50passyds=1
20rushorrecyds=1
TDs=6

Statistically, they were off by a little over 9.5 fantasy points per pick. 8-o

Id say thats not great projecting, but then again, there isnt really a standard to base that off of. Maybe being off by 9.5 is actually way ahead of the curve.

Anyone else want to post some statistical projections of last week's players from other sources so we can get some comparisons?

9.5 is a ton in that scoring system. With the 50/20 yds per point the scores are pretty low, so to scale 9.5 is alot more.

I shudder to think what it'd be in a 25/10 league..

11.32 overall.

5.74 per QB which is equal to roughly 125-150 yd difference or 1 TD off.

4.63 per RB which is equal to about 50 rush yds or a little less than 1 TD off

They only ranked 1 WR in the top 20.
