Week 7 Fantasy Projections: Hooper and Gabriel to Erupt

The RotoViz Game Level Similarity Projections help you make lineup decisions using historical matchups as your guide. Week 7 is upon us, and it’s time to make start/sit and roster management decisions. Earlier in the week, we looked at preliminary GLSP projections derived from a model I pulled together. Let’s compare and contrast these results with the GLSP projections calculated by the RotoViz apps and identify players with a surprising range 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 running backs similar to Duke Johnson fared against defenses similar to the Titans? These are the types of questions that GLSP attempts to answer. GLSP projections rely solely on historical data.

How’d We Do Last Week?

My quarterback selections were mixed. Jacoby Brissett was poor, scoring just 14 points. However, Matthew Stafford struggled, as expected by the GLSP, going under 15 points. Running backs got the best of me. Aaron Jones produced just five fantasy points, and DeMarco Murray had a 19 point performance. These results were the opposite of my expectations. The GLSP hit on Adam Thielen, correctly forecasting a near 20-point performance, but Jarvis Landry, who was expected to struggle, was one of the week’s best wide receivers. Tight end has been the most challenging position within this article, but I did well with it last week. Zach Miller panned out as a solid flex play with 10 points, and Jared Cook should have been benched. He scored just three points.
