Examining Efficiency: 6 Week 2 Regression Candidates

Week 1 is in the books, so it’s time to recap how the regression candidates from Week 1 fared, and look ahead to the positive and negative regression candidates for Week 2.

Recap of Week 1

Positive Regression Week 1 Results

Davante Adams: Adams hauled in a TD, which always makes for a good fantasy day from someone of his value. However, Adams had a -2.86 YPTOE, meaning 2.86 yards below situational expectation. This was actually worse than the -2.1 number he posted in 2015. Latavius Murray: Murray rushed for one TD and had both a positive YPTOE and YPCOE against a bad Saints D. Positive regression all around!

Negative Regression Week 1 Results

Allen Hurns: Hurns did not grab a TD, but posted a very impressive 6.25 YPTOE on only five targets. C.J. Anderson: Anderson rushed for a TD and additionally caught a TD pass. He also had a 2.91 YPTOE. However, I did nail the rushing YPCOE part. He was held to a -3.35 YPCOE. Zach Miller: Chalk this up as a win all around. Miller did not catch a touchdown and posted a 1.24 YPTOE on four targets. That did regress down from his 1.7 YPTOE in 2015.
