Examining Efficiency: Sit Shepard in Week 4

On to Week 4! As a reminder, I’ll be using yards per target over expectation and yards per carry over expectation to find regression candidates. As always, let’s start with a recap of the Week 3 regression candidates, and how they impacted fantasy football rosters.

RECAP OF WEEK 3

POSITIVE REGRESSION WEEK 3 RESULTS

Coby Fleener: Last week’s article was called “Examining Efficiency: All-In on Fleener in Week 3” – going to take my victory lap here. Fucking nailed it! Michael Floyd: Fucking didn’t nail it! Only 65 yards on 11 targets. Ouch. Charles Sims: Sims posted a 4.2 YPC, but more importantly a 0.53 YPCOE and scored a rushing touchdown. His 6-69 on 8 targets also put him right at league average in YPTOE, which is an improvement from his first two weeks. Score this one a hit!

NEGATIVE REGRESSION WEEK 3 RESULTS

Matt Jones: Jones posted a YPCOE that was league average in Week 3, which was regression from his positive YPCOE through the first two weeks. He also did not record a touchdown, so this was a hit. Mike Wallace: It was almost impossible for Wallace to not regress, and that proved to be true. He only had 34 yards on six targets. Martellus Bennett: Bennett posted only 10 yards on three targets. Volume was diminished because Jacoby Brissett was behind center and Rob Gronkowski returned for a handful of plays. But even on the efficiency side, things just weren’t there for Bennett.
