GLSP Projections: Week 1 Surprises

Week 1 is upon us and it’s time to make the first of many start/sit and roster management decisions. To assist you in this endeavor, I’ll be posting two articles per week. Both will focus on GLSP projections. The first article will publish early in the week and share the results of my personal models. Later, we’ll compare my findings to the projections generated by the site GLSP Apps and look for players with surprisingly good and bad ranges of outcomes. As a reminder, GLSP projections are agnostic of a player’s situation, health and external factors. They are compiled through the use of historical data to identify matchups between comparable players and defenses. How have quarterbacks similar to Alex Smith fared against defenses similar to the Patriots? These are the types of questions that GLSP attempts to answer using a range of outcomes.
